… Because I don’t want to be badgered or baited
By Jeff Salter
This week is about whether we’d like a NYC [or west coast studio] television interview … and if so, by whom.
Leave me out of it.
All the so-called “interview” shows I see on TV are just platforms for either the host/hostess to badger their victims [i.e., guests], or for the guest to bait and snipe at other guests. No thanks. Even the Jerry Springer combat show interviews would be preferable to that.
However, if I were going to be interviewed on the larger TV stage, I’d pick somebody like Dick Cavett. He was intelligent, considerate, subdued, asked thoughtful questions… and actually listened to most of the answer before interrupting or shouting down the guests.
Not sure Cavett is doing interviews these days, but if he is, somebody have his people call my people… and maybe we can set up an interview.
Would YOU want to be interviewed by anyone on any of the current network shows?
