Journalist notes[edit]

Wikinews interviews Trischa Zorn

This is an interview. I tried three paragraphs but I really, really can't transcribe it... I'd tried to summarize the general bits the best I could. My hope is that people will LISTEN to it more so than want to read a summary of it. The interview was just fantastic.

The induction thing is mentioned in the interview and was at the same ceremony as the one in Frank Ponta inducted into the Paralympic Hall of Fame that Hawkeye7 wrote about. --LauraHale (talk) 21:36, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

  • As I have remarked previously, I know how difficult a full transcription is. However, substantial pull-quotes would be better, and better-serve NPOV, than paraphrasing what the interviewee said.
As is vital for doing any sort of "talk" ('cos it ain't an interview if you've zero quotes) have you ran the text past the subject before submitting it? If you mis-quote, or misrepresent what they have said that has the potential to be extremely damaging. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:35, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Can you or some one else give it a go at trying to do that? Just full out on time. Need to write rowing gold, going to basketball, etc. Just full out and not being able to get sleep. :( --LauraHale (talk) 12:02, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
