This is a hard news story i wrote in my first year of RMIT journalism about the banning of pregnant sow stalls in Tasmanian piggeries. Writing this story was the first time i got a taste of interviewing a subject who had a preconceived notion of what the story was going to be about. Consequently, i listened to a 20-minute lecture on the importance of balanced journalism (before I’d even asked my first question).
