Ok, so let me know if I've understood this right - "felé" is twoards somewhere/thing (but does not necessarily mean that place/object will be the final destination), and "-hoz/-hez" (etc) is the motion to somewhere/thing where that place/object is the final destination? Wow, this really is a fascinating language! (Even if I am pulling my hair out!!! Haha)
Wouldn't 'towards the black car' be 'a fekete autó felé'? To me, while 'towards' implies running to the car, it's really just saying that you're running in that direction and could still veer off in another direction, or stop well before the car, or keep running past the car.
JMax, 'towards' is not the right translation here. It should be 'to'. See the comment from joanna54321.
(It may be that it would have been better if the Hungarian had used the Hungarian equivalent of 'towards' to describe the situation, but that is another matter. The Hungarian here is saying 'to' and not 'toward(s)'.)
Perhaps they'll get around to adding "journalist".
By the way, In US usage, all reporters are journalists, but not all journalists are reporters. That is, a "reporter" is a sometimes rather junior person who interviews people, takes notes, etc. The term "journalist" is broader, covering not only reporters but also, editors, columnists, etc.
