Bret Baier: ‘Sometimes I think reporters in Washington get caught up in their list of questions’

With the election in the final stretch, Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier reflects on his toughest interviews in Naples Illustrated:

The toughest interviews are the ones, and usually they are politicians, who don’t answer the question you’re asking. It happens a lot, I think a lot more than people sitting at home would like. My mentor was Brit Hume as I mentioned, but I also really liked the late Tim Russert, he was a friend. I liked his style. What I learned most is that it’s about listening, not about talking. Sometimes I think reporters in Washington get caught up in their list of questions and what’s next as opposed to listening to the answer and pressing on that answer to get an answer.
