3. As I get older I find myself growing impatient with this cinematic journalism style

I'm old and my time on Earth is limited. Give me those hard facts and the thesis of your editorial upfront. If the story is interesting, I'll read your flummery about what this ex Trump voter was doing on a Thursday afternoon in 2017. Don't think you're seducing me with your vague that changing political views changed his dating life, yet never telling me how it totally changed his life until the 20th paragraph. No, at this stage in life I like my journalism like I like my barbecues: give me the meat up front, and if I enjoy the conversation, I'll stick around for your grandmother's potato salad.
