How do you know of the growing popularity of the interview as a form of journalism


The interview has been a staple of journalism since it was first used a little more than 130 years ago. Nearly all literate people in today's world have read interviews at some point in their life, and from the other perspective, thousands of celebrities have been interviewed over the years, some of them repeatedly. The media inundates the average person with hundreds of interviews every day since they have become such a prevalent form of journalism. The fact that an interview is a one-on-one conversation with a sequence of questions intended to elicit detailed responses has contributed to its widespread acceptance as a journalistic genre.
As they say, interviews are the foundation of journalism. A strong quotation enhances an article's substance, lends authority, highlights the theme or aspect of the narrative, conveys an opinion, supplies crucial details and information, or presents a counterargument.
