WHAT ABOUT C?


Hmmm...


part of sentence can be rewritten as

which event (that will be reported in the future) is equivalent to  "to be reported" ...

That also makes sense... Anyway.

B is still my choice.

I think the best answer is B.
As a journalist you should first decide what events to report before you make some interviews.


Now lets try answer C., then with an adjustment:
As a journalist you should first decide what events to be reported before you make some interviews.
As a journalist you should first decide what events "are" to be reported before you make some interviews.

Which of these two sentences sounded more correct?


However, I think the sentence is still not right, and should be the following:
As a journalist you should first decide what events to report "on" before you make some interviews.

Or more clearly:
As a journalist you should first decide what events to report "about" before you make some interviews.

The above sentence makes it sound as if the journalist is deciding what to write about, then making the interviews fit the the event, rather than the other way around. This following sounds correct to me:

As a journalist you should first make some interviews, then decide what events to report.
