Memory Lane Monday: Amanpour vs. Hannan or How To: Handle a Hostile Interview

Hannan's "New Road to Serfdom" though can't compete with the original.Lots of gesturing. Last month, there was a pretty heavy throw down.

No, not with Trump’s WWE, but with CNN’s All Star Hack Christiane Amanpour (think a slightly more attractive Helen Thomas) and MEP Daniel Hannan, the man whom pens a new book on liberty and freedom every 3 months or so.You know what’s not listed in the book? Racism.

Apparently, Amanpour wasn’t aware of any of those books, otherwise one imagines she might have had the presence of mind to not try and peddle her, “Brexit is racist!” diatribe to Hannan’s face while live on air.

Now, since Amanpour seems unable to stop interrupting and talking over her guest, the overall interview loses a little in transcript form so instead, grab some popcorn (or cornflakes as the time of the day dictates for you) and just check out the actual video instead.



Drum roll, please...

What say you, PDers? Is that how you handle a hostile interview or what?

    Comparing her to Helen Thomas is really rude. Even dead, Thomas is the looker.

    That interview should be studied in broadcast schools the world over to show how not to conduct one! Seriously appalling, even for CNN.

    It's great how Hannan managed to keep his cool while not being railroaded by Amanpour. Those British manners in action! ;)

    Anyone with any remaining questions are Brexit should really read Hannan's book. It is really well-written.

    Calling her a hack is too kind.
