I would appreciate if someone could clarify whether we should use "I" or "the author/reporter" in journalistic writing. Thanks.

reporter
Explanation:
In my humble opinion, one would use "reporter" to help declare that the author was an observer, not a participant.

In a traffic accident, one's passenger is not allowed to be the witness as s/he was the driver's passenger and not likely an objective observer.

The same applies.
