Fox News Interview Gone Wrong

When it comes to terrible interviews, Lauren Green’s is the absolute worst. In her show on Fox News, she speaks with author and scholar Reza Aslan about his new book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. Not only does she insult him based on his personal beliefs, but she also shows her lack of research by not knowing the content of the book and not being aware of what his profession entails. If this isn’t bad enough, she continues to ask the same questions, in turn receiving the EXACT SAME response. She relies too heavily on a pre-written script, rather than actually listening to what the interviewee has to say. Any decent journalist should know that listening is the most important skill when it comes to interviewing. If she had just taken the time to absorb the information that he was providing for her, instead of interrupting with her own ridiculous questions, she could have easily turned the interview around for the better. It’s journalists such as her that give the profession a bad name.
