As a journalist, the on-camera reporter should always uphold the journalistic principle of "truthfulness". Journalists who appear on camera can work on "broad preparation", in order to demonstrate verbal and interviewing skills. They should not only be good at information gathering, but also good at information presentation. In the news scene, on-camera journalists need to be "narrow preparation", making the best use of "first-hand information" and experiential reporting. Only in this way can the on-camera reporter better approach the truth of the news, to maximize the authenticity of the news out of the report.
