Reporters have an amazing knack of getting information from people. That alone interests us, but when you mix in their ability to take that info and make it interesting, make it captivating and make it real – that is an art. We talked to, Elinor Mills, who is in our opinion, a superb reporter that works with CNET news as well as CBS Interactive. She helps us to uncover the secrets to this art and see what we can learn.
