A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.

I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

These aren't outtakes. This stuff airs :D

pshaw! It would never work. First, there's all the laughing the crew would be doing. Second, the censors wouldn't let him ask half the questions he does, even if certain words are bleeped out. And Third, he and whichever news group he works for would be sued into the ground by the time he finished his first interview. Let him stay where he is. He's great and the people he works with and for love him (I hope). Besides, should we ever have the chance to borrow him, there'll be a list of people to be interviewed so long he'd end up living out the rest of his days here trying to complete it.

the way I'd interview a politician is either don't, or slap them each time they say the word I, or be really fall down drunk during it.

You might enjoy the interview with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot, where a senior calls in to say she had to work as a sex worker, and the fucker gives the interviewer the sleaziest wink known to man.

Unfortunately, no danger of that ever happening on Italian TV - Berlusconi owns most of them, and successfully neutered most of the public broadcaster RAI's channels during his time as prime minister. :(

Is the Berlusconi interview on the web? I watched the clip listed here and Berlusconi didn't say a word.......not that I mind considering he would (probably be) speaking italian and I don't know that language
(Yes, Im aware Berlusconi would have had a translator don't bite me)

How is it the BBC has a problem with Clarkson mumbling the N word and not have a beef with Paxman?

jollyjack Featured By Owner May 21, 2014
Mumbling the "N" word as part of an old playground rhyme in years-old footage that was never broadcast.

I think some people just have it in for Top Gear.

I totally need to fav this journal. Or find a way to. Though I heard there is this mythical feature refereed to as "bookmark" which might answer my plight.

Also: "Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start."

.... this bring out so many ideas and images for pictures to draw.

...I need to draw this now.
