“Every government does not like it when a journalist x-rays”
– We are here to look at the hands of each authority on behalf of the citizens. Every government does not like it when a journalist examines statements, actions and decisions. Every government has a big problem with that – said the boss “Black and White”. But, as she emphasized, “this is the essence of our work”. – Regardless of the problems and difficulties we have in reaching the truth, we must discover them – she added.
Redo also talked about the work of the reporters from “Black and White”. – Our path is much longer. When the news dust settles, we enter and pick through these pollen dusts, check everything again, document it, confront it, search deeper. More time and money are needed for this. We have both in “Black on White” and this allows us to delve into the topics. It’s fantastic that we can do this, she said.
“This is our job. We are not to be liked”
Jerzy Durlik stated that “during these twenty years it would be difficult to find an authority that liked us”. – This is our job. We are not to be liked, we just stressed ..
He also talked about the features that TVN24 reporters must have. – Inquisitiveness, a certain waywardness, curiosity, interest, willingness to explore the topic and not giving up – he enumerated. – Our feature for many years is that we use what we have. Young people come to us for internships and stay. They are slowly climbing the career ladder – added Durlik.
