    what was the slasher's ANSWER to s&p's warning about our credit rating?

    no big deal?

    is such an oblivious, outta touch retort due to his being interrupted?

    or is the slasher the last occupant of his own little world?

    leadership, anyone?

    Why shouldn't the President criticize an interviewer? It's about time he did so. It's peanuts compared to what I saw Boehner do the other day when he asked a reporter why he always so loud. At least Obama did it off camera.

    I was on vacation this past week so I didn't keep up on newspapers but when did reporters get put on pedestal? I thought it was consensus that reporters are all biased and put their slant to the news.

    I guess with the recent air traffice controllers gaffs that the news reporters got to move up couple notches of respect.

    No, it's not rude. It's not straightforward or honest, but it's not rude either.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Absolutely.

    An interview, these days, is a chance to play a 'gotcha' game - where the 'reporter' asks off the wall questions and inserts opinions in order to stir the entire discussion up into a debate.

    An Interview, however, is not a debate - it is not suppose ot be that way. It is a series of carefully thought out questions and someone giving a considerate and thorough response.

    If you're interrupting the point that someone is *trying* to make in response ot your question then you're NOT conducting an interview - you're investigating - and it's horridly rude and, tehse days, that's about all that we ever get.

    I hate 24/7 media these days and how they bow to the sponsors - cut people short to go to break - cut people short to ask other questions - cut people short to argue. I want everyone to be civil, ask and wait patiently while they receive an answer and if the answer goes on for a while then *politely feed in an interruption of some type.* I WANT to be able ot hear their response - whatever it is - without them being holed up against a bunch of other bull****.

    Especially whne it comes to the president - I think he deserves a little respect and is far more impotant than Mcdonald's big-mac commercials.

    That said, I don't favor non-answers, and by all means try to get an actual answer, but if you are going to ask the question, let the person answer. The follow up, even state that wasn't a complete answer if such is the case, but allow him to answer.
    I see, you don't like BS answers if it is someone you don't support, but since it is someone you support we should allow Obama to get away with blatent lying. Got it.

    The reporter did let him answer, he just didn't allow his obvious lie, and that pisses off his supporters...Heaven forbid.

    What if it had been a liberal reporter from the Huffington Post?

    The only interuption then would have been either to keep Obama on talking point to help him, or slobbering noises as the reporter kissed his feet.
