    Please, which meaning of “face” is more likely in the context below?: 1. Confront; deal with or 2. Look at ? I’m not absolutely certain. Many thanks.
    Victoria Jenkins: The girls in the water
    She went into the hallway and stood at the living room door, watching her colleague FACE the news crews and reporters as he prepared for the announcement recorded earlier that evening.
    Background info: her colleague is a chief inspector, who is just about to give a statement about a murdered girl and the ongoing investigation.

    London but from Yorkshire
    English - England
    Confront. The context shows that the interesting thing here is the confrontation, not whether the colleague is facing north, south, east or west.
