That's what reporters do. Well, some of 'em used to--
Ruth Holladay still does. She took her notepad and an open mind to the recent debate between Democrat and Republican candidates for Mayor of Indianapolis and showed how it's done.
Man, I miss havin' an actual newspaper in this town -- we used to have two or three and they even had some reporters.
P.S. We have a kinda-sorta Libertarian Party guy running for the office, too. I say kinda-sorta: he seems to be fond of the EPA and mandatory vehicle inspections. Psst, Mister, I think you might'a been looking for the Green Party and got lost. Man, you wash their little minds and you can't hardly do anything with them.
