The article considers characteristics of telling stories in diegesis on the material of newspaper narrative. The aim of the article is examining communicative and pragmatic parameters of German newspaper reportages under the conditions of transformation of a multi-chronotope paper narrative model with the help of displacement of a communicative act of a narrator and a reader into the temporal and local space of the described characters. As examples of diegetic journalist texts, Shams Ul-Haq’s reports are considered that are outstanding specimen of German journalism. The reporter came from Pakistan and settled in Germany. The given reportages were made using the method of undercover observation, when the journalist is disguised as a described character and is a communicator in diegesis. The research makes it possible to conclude that pragmatically meaningful positions in narrative are the chronotope, the voices of the storyteller and the described characters, communicating with recipients. The article confirms the thesis of relevance of speech act synergy for optimization of persuasion in the research report with the help of displacement of the narrator/journalist into the environment of the described characters, where he can start a dialogue with the characters and the reader.
