WATCH! When Interviews Go Wrong

posted by Ted Garcia - 

Those of us in the media have had interviews that have gone terribly wrong. Either a question is misunderstood or a person is in a bad mood or you (the interviewer) didn't do your homework.

Back in the mid-90's I interviewed actor Tommy Lee Jones in Marfa, TX (basically in the middle of nowhere West Texas). He was, to put it mildly, a jerk. Why, I don't know. We drove 5 hours from San Antonio to do an interview he AGREED to! The questions were innocuous. But Tommy was not happy to be there.

Here's an example of what happens when interviews go sideways.
