The Zen of Interviewing

For many beginning journalists, the prospect of telephoning or dropping in
on a perfect stranger to ask probing questions is pretty frightening.

It goes against the grain of much of what we’ve been told growing up: Don’t talk to strangers. Mind
your own business. Don’t ask rude questions.
Our obligations as journalists trump those old standbys from the parents’ handbook.
 Even without all that parental advice kicking around in your subconscious,
your first few interviews can be pretty intimidating.


You have to call up or visit perfect strangers, often in positions of authority.
You are doing something unfamiliar, the learning curve is pretty steep, and there’s no
margin for error.
 But if you think it’s a gut-tightener for you, think about the person you will
be interviewing, particularly if he or she isn’t used to dealing with news
media.


Your subject goes into the interview knowing that anything he or she says might wind up in the
newspaper or on the air for all to see.
Or that a brand-new reporter will not get it right.
 An interview doesn’t have to be a contest to see who wins.


In fact, if we are to serve our audiences well, that’s probably not the appropriate model.
Open-Ended and Closed-Ended Questions
 Use open-ended questions when a subject won’t open up:
 Tell me about your son.
 Talk about that for a minute.
 Describe what you did at that point.
 Use closed-ended questions when a subject won’t shut up,
or is being vague or evasive:




Did you take the money?
What was her name?
How many hikers are missing?
When did he graduate?
