Rifqi instead invited Ivan and the discussion participants to reverse the process when faced with obstacles in the coverage of this particular issue. “Input from me, can be reversed in the process, we can approach the closest people, we go to family, for example, the last interview of the coach. Because talking about the diffable, not only to the athlete, but can be to his family, so being able to draw conclusions, for an athlete with disabilities it will not be easy, how can the family support that we can see. Now that we can get emotions, there is a story, “said Rifqi, on August, 20th, 2019, who is also an alumni of Communication Department of UII at Audio Visual Room at 3rd floor of Communication Department.
According to Rifqi, Ivan could also cover from the Athlete coach’s point of view. Possible stories from the coach could be even more. It may be that there are many question marks finally, for example, Rifqi said, the journalist can raise psychological problems, “This child loses what the response is, how he faces the crowd. So the format can be long interviews. So the environment is raised. ”
Then how to make a good reportage and packaging?
Rifqi told the participants, this Ivan’s work was not wrong. But usually the media is packed with more features and stories. This will explore how the journey will be, not about the competition. “Yes, this is sometimes what journalists escape. Often that is covered by the achievement, people forget there is someone behind it. For example, the question can be raised whether these teachers have a bachelor of sports and can train disabled people? More interesting right?” Rifqi responded. “How long that you learn to communicate? How long do you approach with disabled athletes. If an ordinary athlete can be cured, if an athlete with disabilities? not necessarily, it may be different,” he explained later.
Rifqi rewards Ivan because Ivan dared to take this issue. Seniour reporters also sometimes do not necessarily dare to take the issue of diffable, and sometimes they may back down.
Retyan, one of the participants argues that Ivan should prefer the ‘diffable’ diction rather than disability, “because if disabled, the language is dis-able,” not capable “, and they don’t want to be called as disable and that is the same as the actual disability.”
Rifqi responded. According to him there must be research conducted before journalists leave to go to reportage or cover some issues. For example, about the use of the terms difabel, disabilities, or disabled. The term itself should be content. “The question of writing can later. Research must know beforehand first, so understand what we will enter first before going to reportage.”
