Journalists conducting interviews must ensure the information that they are taking down from sources is what the source said. That includes verifiable facts, like names, places, dates, titles, etc. Accuracy does not mean every single sentence spoken must be taken down word for words, but anything a reporter plan to quote must be chronicled and presented verbatim. In journalistic writing, the writer's opinion means very little. Some people love pocket-sized reporting notebooks, while others seek stenographer or legal pads. No matter what the size, notebooks have pluses and minuses. For the other information, the reportar will grab key pieces of information, and also chronicle details from the interview and the interview subject. Typing notes directly into a computer became a popular technique with the rise of laptops, and it offers a lot of reporter advantages. The information we gather through interviews gets utilized in articles in two primary ways: quoting, and paraphrasing.
