The ideal news reporter is as unbiased as possible when covering stories. Right? Right. Well. Okay. I wouldn't mind trying out news, it looks like a challenging yet fun job and I would be proud to get the chance to be a news broadcaster. It's difficult though, being a rather convicted person when it comes to politics. We have a news assignment due this Monday and we are supposed to go grab a clip from someone, and not just anybody on the street but someone who has the goods on whatever story you are after. I was going to try and get the Kitchener Rangers coach to let me record something over the phone regarding the hockey team, but then I was on - gasp - Facebook, and saw a friend had posted something about Prime Minister Stephen Harper coming to my hometown of Guelph. Apparently he is going to deliver a speech about science and technology at St. Ignatius School tomorrow morning. Hmmm, the wheels turned like rusty cogs, creeeeeeekkkkkk...do I even bother? It's not often that the Prime Minister decides to come to this area and it's not often that I'm supposed to try and get an audio news clip. So I've decided to go for it and called the school's Principal asking permission to see the PM's speech. He was very excited and said absolutely, and even gave me the number to call Ottawa. I don't know what kind of access I'll get to the guy but at the very least hopefully I can get a good enough clip of the speech. Here's the problem. I don't like the guy. Maybe that's wrong of me, I've never met him...so maybe what I mean is I'm not a huge fan of his politics. I know why he's in the Waterloo area, it's to promote science and technology but more-so it's to promote a factory in Waterloo that is currently under contract to help build more fighter jets. I'm a "make love not war" kinda gal so this agenda doesn't impress me. But I'm still going to go there, and no, I won't be the jerk that I am behind closed doors when I see his face on television, or hear his voice on the radio. I will be unbiased, because that's what a news person is supposed to do.
