What is a Vox Pop?

Vox Pop means ‘Voice of the People’.  It is a style of journalistic interview where various people are asked the same question.  “The aim is to get a variety of answers and opinions on any given subject. Journalists are usually instructed to approach a wide range of people to get varied answers from different points of view. The interviewees should be of various ages, sexes, classes and communities so that the diverse views and reactions of the general people will be known.” (wikipedia)
