Eisner: “The Camera Makes Me Look Fat”

Michael Eisner, the host of monthly Conversations on CNBC, has a “pervasive if good-humored paranoia about how he looks on camera,” the Miami Herald notes.

It doesn’t sound all that good-humored: “The camera makes me look fat,” Eisner complained during a recent taping. The producer replied: “Want me to put a bag over your head?”

> Also: How long will the Conversations continue for? Eisner says: “When I first talked with CNBC, I agreed to do one Conversations. Then they said, ‘How about another six?’ Then they said, ‘How about another 12?’ It’s not like I ever had a plan about this. So who knows where it will go?”
