    1. Keep your voice down. Many journalists speak very loudly.

    2. Learn Russian.

    3. Learn foreign languages.

    4. Listen to your interlocutor to the end, let him speak out.

    5. Learn how to dress (applies to women).

    6. Follow the gestures.

    7. Keep track of technical issues. Whether the lights are set up well, whether the sound is good.

    8. Smile.

    9. Call the other person by their first name.

  1. By and large, all the rules that can be named fall under the category of “honesty”. Of course, there are dishonest journalists, but they are somehow called differently:) �

    And to be more specific, I'll add this to the above:

    1. Compliance with the off record rule. It happens that the interlocutors can tell about something that they then ask not to publish. And that means you didn't hear it, period.�

    2. Correct questions. If you need a high-quality conversation, do not answer your own questions and ask about “cognac in the morning”.

    3. Whoever the other person is, you need to talk to them as if they are a person. Most often, this is the case 🙂

  2. Be honest. This is the basis of journalism. Honestly ask questions, warn – what information can be posted in the media and what-not, inform the interviewee about feedback from the audience, and honestly refuse – when it is impossible to agree on a specific issue.
