I’m often surprised by what seemingly rude questions she asks her interviewees. For example, a couple weeks ago, Harry Shearer described a show he had opening at a New York Gallery and she replied, “Is that supposed to be deep?”
Yet week after week, she gets the biggest names in politics, business, and the arts to sit down with her. Is this the magic of editing? Are her interviewees ever mad when they read the published interview? I’m curious if anyone can point me to some links about how she works, or has any hearsay to share.
(I’m not sure if this is in the correct forum, but I couldn’t think of a better place for it.)
