  • Abstract According to past researches, we find that journalists often make close relationship with news resources in order to accomplish their jobs. Exports sum up three models that include opposition, cooperation, and assimilation. At the same time, other related researches indicate that the more lasting journalists have the same news lines, the easier journalists have the assimilative relationship with news resources. Both of journalists and news resources have the cooperative and dependent relationship, so it becomes an important issue to research the relationship between journalists and news resources.
     The research discusses with the interactive relationship between the local councils and journalists in order to realize how reporters select to close news resources, and both of journalists and news resources have the assimilative relationship with the long period interaction. At the same time, the research discusses with the selective and close influence of “professional consciousness” of journalists in order to understand about the interactive types between Taiwan’s journalists and local councilors.
     The main points in the research are as followed:
    The research finds that the male journalists are more than female journalists. Males are two- third, and females are one -third. But female journalists are generally more than male journalists in Taipei City Council, and journalists who have the news line in other local councils are elder, it’s different from the type of reporters in the central council.
     In the activeness of journalists, the research finds the situation with the questionnaires and deep interview that the activeness of journalists is higher than councilors. But there are half councilors are one-third journalists who consider that it depends on different kinds of news. Thus, the interaction between journalists and councilors will change with different kind of news.
     More of councilors and journalists who take the deep interview consider that the good interaction between journalists and councilors is a kind of dependently cooperative relationship. After having the deep interaction each other, some journalists and news resources become the assimilative relationship. It’s obvious that the relationship change between journalists and councilors comes from the three models---opposition, cooperation, and assimilation.
     Journalists will pay much attention to the first point “how much I can trust”, the second point is “ to judge with their past experiences” when they the interview with councilors. It’s obvious that the two points in closing news resources are very important, and those improves that the “correction” in reports is attached importance to reporters very much.
