'Don't Be Boring' and 6 Other Interviewing Tips From Jacqui Banaszynski
from The Poynter Institute
In the 1980s, when she was a reporter at the
St. Paul Pioneer Press
, Jacqui Banaszynski spent months reporting on the story of a gay Minnesotan couple with AIDS. She had to work with her editors and her sources and fight to tell the story the way she felt it should be told. The result was not only heartrending but also informative for an audience that wasn't yet comfortable talking about gay couples, let alone seeing photos of them or learning about the disease that disproportionately affected their community.
