Who are, in the main, not real journalists just people who have floated into the job. Most are fans and shouldn't be allowed within a mile of a musician armed with any sort of question.
Rarely will they ask a disparaging question in case the magazine itself gets tarnished and they lose the opportunity to meet their idols.

Journalism has gone downhill so far since the internet came along, Kerrang and Sounds in the 80's were brilliant, and though they had their fair share of talentless journalists the majority were great.
