Media Beat Preview: Even With Restrictions, An Interview Can Be ‘Excellent’

There are many instances when publicists, after securing an interview for a client, have to have the sensitive conversation with reporters about what their clients can’t talk about. In our next episode of Media Beat, writer and cultural critic Touré tackles this issue from the journalist’s point of view.

When asked how he handles the issue of what not to ask, particularly when talking with celebrities, he says, “nine times out of 10, a restriction is fair” and it won’t negatively impact the conversation.

Click the video below for a preview. And tune in next week to watch the interview in its entirety.
