Why isn't Harvey a major interview? Because he is black?

He has millions of viewers, has won emmy's for outstanding talk show host and has lead in the ratings for years.

Do you? Im asking if Hillary was spoon fed the questions, and Donald wasn't...

Seems simple. Cheating


Wow, I'm trying to think of a way to say this within T&C.

You're not only utterly ignorant of the actual topic here, you're arrogant about being ignorant.

from the memo:


According to the memo, Clinton’s staff saw Harvey’s show as an effective and low-risk way to reach out to female and African American voters. They also noted recent episodes of the show that focused on issues that Clinton had stressed during her campaign.

Isn't this standard practice with politicians, events and the media?

For example, Trump's Q&A with the pastor in Detroit was scripted.


It most certainly isn't standard practice for self-respecting media. It is unethical to collaborate with sources and send them the list of questions prior to an interview. To do so is to give them and their PR team time to spin their answers. This is especially important when it comes to politics.

I suppose an argument can be made that in this instance, it is a relatively soft television show which will not be asking hard questions, but this is not a new practice when it comes to Clinton. Many other journalists have been caught out collaborating with her campaign. At that moment, they cease to be proper and objective journalists, and are no more than an extended arm of the campaign's PR team.

Her usual M-O is to provide the questions to the interviewer. They are told to stick to the list of questions and not deviate from it or there will never be another interview. Its sickening when she is asked a question she approved herself then looks at the interviewer and says, "Boy, you are hitting me with some tough ones..." Then spews out a canned response. This is how it works folks. Every bit of the interaction is scripted worse than reality shows.

Good Lord Almighty.

Ok. Guess what? This is pretty normal! It happens all the time in politics and in the entertainment industry. People get questions ahead of time, they negotiate topics, they can even forbid topics (think Cruise and Scientology).

They sign contracts, and can have riders regarding provisions for security, green room, etc. I'm sure they at least had the SS give a long list of requirements for her to show up. Her campaign most likely negotiated a lot of things, including an opportunity to prepare for the questions.

This should not come as a shock to anyone.

Not everyone does it that way but it is very common.

My husband is not famous but he gave an interview
and the interviewer sent him questions in advance so that he could give his best answers. It didn't preclude them talking about it or following up on something that was said. That was the choice of the person interviewing him.

Some people are more off the cuff than Hillary, true. And some people make a ton more gaffes and walk-backs than she does, too. /shrug

Its not that people use pre-approved questions. Its the deception of trying to pass them off as "tough ones" or "zingers" that caught her off guard that I despise. Its bad enough that the whole thing is staged, but to try to act like its a run and gun interview is sick.

She's a wrinkled up old cheater.

I knew this would come out sooner or later. Her answers were too well scripted to have not been prepared in advance.

Good Lord. Every single person who goes on any television show to be interviewed get's an advance copy of the planned questions for approval. The only time this does not happen is the press junkets for movies when the stars of the film do about 20 interviews in five hours time. And even then, their agents let the interviewers know in advance what is not on the table for discussion. Some of the interviews on the 24 news networks don't advance the questions, so there's an exception.

Whether politician or actor, you go on Steve Harvey or Ellen, or Jimmy effin' Kimmel, the questions the host plans on asking are provided in advance.

But hey, let's pretend it's only a Hillary thing. More fun.

Some of us are old enough to miss the good old days of watching the evening news and the news specials... especially the ones where they would chase the perps down the street asking them questions while they keep screaming "no comment".

I remember old Geraldo and many others aggressively reporting stories and researching the leads...

Those days are long gone...... now you get the news that they want you to get.
