Fox Business Network’s Charlie Gasparino conducted a series of interviews with convicted felon Bernie Madoff. One of the recurring themes of the interviews was Madoff’s interaction with the media while behind bars (FBN included). Gasparino reveals that Madoff appears to have booked his first on-camera TV news interview since being incarcerated, with the leading candidate supposedly being NBC’s “Today.”
Meanwhile, just about every major television media outlet — including FOX Business — is asking for the first on-camera interview with the convicted swindler.
Rumors are swirling that the ‘Today Show’ has been to Butner to shoot footage in preparation for the first on-camera spot with Madoff. Madoff won’t comment, other than to say that he has made one commitment to one major network that may or may not pan out and the decision is “weeks away.”
Gasparino also writes that Madoff’s son, Andrew Madoff, is speaking to CBS’ “60 Minutes”:
