Interviews are truthfully anything but simple, as they involve asking questions that reflect the information sought as clearly, yet conversationally, as possible. They require listening to and analyzing answers, while at the same time figuring out what to ask next. It might seem like a narrow focus to craft an entire journalism education book exclusively on interviewing, but the need for such a tome speaks directly to the importance of good, strong interviewing in the journalistic field—and the fact it is often a stumbling block for young journalists. The quality of sources, the depth of the questions, the understanding of the subject, and the ability to transmit that subject information to others are key to successful journalism. And much of them start with the interviews conducted with sources who provide journalism with primary source material. This book discusses the interwoven elements of journalistic interview, as well as the environments in which interviewing is even more specialized.
