Journalists are, in my experience, very observant and extremely interested in people. The secret of success in in being able to say how things are without getting immersed in one's subject, or so I often have had reason to believe. The laws that govern what is written and photographed, as well as broadcast live are now so complicated that it would take a very astute mind indeed to give a full report on any subject. For that reason, there are very many style of reporting.
