Last night was the battle of the B.O. Not the football players body odor, but B.O. as in Bill O. and Barack O. Last night, Fox News commentator interviewed the 44th President and the result was a much more open and honest interview than what most straight journalists can produce. Both interviewer and interviewee were well-prepared for the duel, and both combatants benefited from the exchange. I pretty much agree with Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik, who described the interview as
“two very skilled fighters getting in the ring for a little exhibition warm-up bout. Both like the payday of big exposure they will get, but neither really wants to lay a glove on the other or draw blood. They just want to show off their moves, flick a few fast jabs across the other’s brow and dazzle the rubes out there in the cheap seats with their prowess.”
There is some controversy surrounding the interview but I don’t really feel like giving the haters any more attention.
