Today’s Word on the Street on “Sesame Street” is “reporter.”
The show’s website collects several clips through the years about reporting. They explain the job pretty well.
• A reporter is “someone who talks about and writes about major events going on in the world.”
• Reporters should ask questions about the person they’re interviewing.
• Sometimes a reporter’s job is difficult: “It’s hard to tell about what’s happening when nothing’s happening.” Unless you’ve got a friend who will dance with a penguin.
• Sometimes reporters get angry. And no one cares.
