Oh no. I am not sure how this will go for Joel. I am mildly hopeful, but it could go either way:
1. It could be that the reporters are of a more traditional, “newsy ilk” and will create some real journalism with the sagely Joel being given a more public voice. In my mind, this option would have the reporters be akin to the reporters we saw on the illustrious show, “Lou Grant” which portrayed strong journalism, strong story telling, and in-depth presentation of the facts.
2. These two reporters could be of the more “base/common ilk” that unfortunately has proliferated widely in some venues during the last 25 years…. and they will focus simply on sensationalism and creating a momentary “flash” for their benefit. In this scenario, Joel will likely be taken advantage of.
We shall have to see what transpires.
