Examples of reporter in a Sentence

  1. Christiane Amanpour:

    Im a journalist and a reporter.

  2. Sarah Roderick:

    I think my problem with it was that this reporter wanted to sensationalize an experience that's not very common, ... And I wonder if it would have been different if (it dealt) with someone with a less horrific story -- something that happens to more people. I think this discredits what a lot of survivors go through. Something this physically horrific is not what everyone goes through. Now it's like, 'If I wasn't assaulted by more than one man then my story is not as worthy of attention.' It's frustrating that this is how rape is portrayed on college campuses because this is not the norm.

  3. Donald Trump:

    Yes, I would. But let me just tell you something. I had no idea what this reporter looked like or that he had difficulty.

  4. Danielle McLean:

    You're not changing the integrity of the story in any way. You're not changing any of the facts, if anything, you're bringing more transparency to those old stories because if somebody looked those up and wanted to reach out to the reporter, they wouldn't be able to find that reporter because that reporter wouldn't exist anymore.

  5. James Roosevelt:

    Contrary to what one reporter may think, there is no prepared resolution floating around out there.
