Reporter's notes[edit]

Interview with David Gould, assistant coach of the Gliders

Review of revision 1961677 [Not ready][edit]

  • Unfortunately, due to a ghastly error, I accidentally erased the recording. However, I kept detailed notes. Everything in the article comes from David. It is all his opinion. It is as close to a transcript as I could archive. I could rewrite it as an interview transcript, but it would be a reconstruction. I have tried to make this as clear as possible. There is no analysis or additional facts from me. There are no synthesis sources. Hawkeye7 (talk) 22:04, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
  • (Cultural difference: This is the normal form that an interview would appear in a newspaper or magazine in this country; verbatim Wikinews style interviews are practically unknown, and are restricted to historians like HOPAU. But of course journalists know nothing about NPOV. I thought of the possibility of videoing an interview. This is forbidden at sports events, but would be okay here. The problem is that it would probably be too large to upload.)
  • Anyhow, I hope it is okay now. Hawkeye7 (talk) 22:11, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation; that's good documentation to have. I realize there can be situations where one can't do better (as pointedly acknowledged in my comments). The lesson about the difficulty of neutrality with this format is one we learned with some (wheelchair basketball?) interviews a while back. --Pi zero (talk) 22:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
  • It's not usual to have an interview with no synthesis sources listed; routinely an interview has an intro with facts verified by one or more synthesis sources. In this case, I dug this up as a sanity check on the article:
