04-27-17 – Since Khatchadourian pivots on his subjects so quickly, it can be difficult to assess him in synthesis. Logically, this is the better way to do things. Developing a beat brings you closer to your subjects. It makes you privy to certain things, for good or bad. The composition of your perception evolves from outsider to insider. You may foster stories in ways outsiders couldn’t, but it may come at a cost. The subject could be using you, if money or power are involved.
By most accounts, Khatchadourian is an extremely curious person, which would account for the subject changes…the way I would want to do it. His trajectory has gone from major governmentally important pieces to less important technology pieces. It seems a little odd, but there is no certain reason to be skeptical about him generating propaganda.
