You want an angle on a story? I can find someone to give me that angle if I want to. But what’s far more interesting is the truth.
That’s something I don’t think a lot of people realize and/or think about — if a writer has an agenda and wants to write a certain angle, they’ll always be able to find a way to do it. Or they’ll be manipulated by someone else’s agenda into doing it. It’s a lot harder (and often less sexy) to undercover the actual truth.
