(by Marzia Apice) (ANSA) – ROME, OCTOBER 24 – GABRIELA JACOMELLA, REPORTER MISSION. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO INFORMING AND TELLING THE WORLD (De Agostini, pp. 224, 12.90 euro). “There is a kind of journalism that is not what is rumored everywhere. And the kids want to find a way to deal with different information”. Facts, news, stories and a thousand ways to tell the reality that surrounds us are at the center of “Missione reporter” (De Agostini), the book written by Gabriela Jacomella to help young people understand the profession of the journalist. A real manual in which the journalist and trainer, starting from herself and her own experience, has found the right key to explain to the students that, in a society overloaded with information, being able to extricate themselves from the many inputs received increases their freedom. , it helps to understand what happens in the world and allows you to create an opinion. “To the students I say: read the newspapers and analyze the facts, do not trust”, says the author in an interview with ANSA, “certainly confronting them is stimulating, because young people have the urgency to find solid and verified with which to tell the facts “. In the book, using appropriate and captivating language, Jacomella therefore explains how to find out, what news is, the importance of finding the right way to tell a story, the differences between interview, news, reportage, investigation, editorial, roles all inside an editorial office – from the editor-in-chief to the reporter, from the head of service to the editor – in a true full immersion in the world of information. Is this still the best job in the world? “I believe that the most beautiful professions in the world basically do not exist, you fall in love with a job, an environment or a dream and for me journalism has long been, now I look at it with a certain distance”, he says, “I went through various phases, from blind love to estrangement, from quarrels to rapprochement: let’s say that I have always been curious about how stories are told and the need to find a shared language to explain the world around us”. Much of his story focuses on the theme of credibility, infodemic and fake news: “information pollution is a serious problem because bad journalism is often done precisely in places where there should be greater fairness”, he continues, “it must be understood that information tools are only amplifiers.

What determines bad information is something else, from the compressed time of work to low wages. We are bombarded with fragments of information and narratives: we need the awareness that not everything is worthy of attention and trust and that skimming work must be done, but there is no need to blame users and tools because sometimes you just need to believe or be reassured about some themes. And we have seen it in recent times, unfortunately. “In the book Jacomella tells a lot about herself and her professional experience:” it is the first time that I have exposed myself so much, but over the years I have seen that for young people the comparison with adults who get involved is essential. The hottest questions for them are precisely those about the person in front of them: and in the book I gave the answers to what they asked me in the past “, he says.” It is important to address young people without standing on the pedestal “, he concludes,” you have to be honest and self-critical and question everything without selling pre-established truths. They are more open than us and are able to think without supporters or partisans “. (ANSA).
