Hollywood mega-agent Ari Emanuel and his brothers Rahm Emanuel (the Mayor of Chicago) and Zeke Emanuel (a doctor and bioethicist) were interviewed on “Rock Center.” The segment itself was pretty innocuous, and the three brothers come out of it looking great.
Ari, however, didn’t think so. According to the New York Post, Emanuel sent a legal letter to NBC over the interview, and even confronted NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke about it during a taping of “Saturday Night Live.” He apparently thought that the questioning was too tough, though you wouldn’t know it from the final product:
