ABC’s Dan Harris Interrupted by Publicist

danharris10-20.jpgPRNewser reports on a strange exchange that made the air of last evening’s “Nightline.” ABC’s Dan Harris was interviewing televangelist Benny Hinn when Hinn’s publicist interrupted the interview a number of times after he became unhappy with the questions and topics covered.

Reached for comment, Harris told PRNewser, “Publicists once in a while will interrupt interviews, but that frequency and aggression of interruption I have not seen personally before. It was a combination of frequency and ferocity which made it stand out. We all see on TV publicists interrupting interviews, it happens, but I haven’t seen it at this level…it was either four or five times he interrupted me.”
