One of my real pet peeves is interviewers who don’t let incredibly knowledgeable people speak to the topic they have been invited. Today Judge Peter Boshier was being interviewed by Kathryn Ryan in his capacity as a Law Commissioner.
As the interview evolved it began to focus on possible changes to methods of dealing with accused and victims within the sexual violence spectrum.
BUT SHE JUST WOULDN’T LET THE GUY GIVE ENOUGH OF HIS VIEWS
I was driving along and twice I called out “let him speak!”
He was polite, as I have always found him to be. What he thinks on this topic is of far greater interest to me than where she wants to go with the topic or what she thinks.
To remind Kathryn Ryan, this is the promo for Nine to Noon
“From nine to noon every weekday, Kathryn Ryan talks to the people driving the news – in New Zealand and around the world. Delve beneath the headlines to find out the real story, listen to Nine to Noon’s expert commentators and reviewers and catch up with the latest lifestyle trends on this award-winning programme.”
Guide and listen Ms Ryan, you are not the star, your guests are.
