I love showing you clips of TV interviews that are perfect examples of how NOT to act on camera.
This week, you get not one, but two videos. Each can best be described as, uh, a “teaching moment.” Both authors start stumbling, right out of the gate.
In the first video, author Uri Man’s comments are so inappropriate that he rattles FOX host Ainsley Earhardt. At the end of the interview, she turns to her co-host and asks, “Did that just happen?”
In the second video, the anchors start taunting author Karrine Steffans and things turn really ugly. Karrine’s response infuriates the anchors so badly that at the end….well, I’m not going to spoil it for you. But promise me you’ll watch to the bitter end.
Here’s the first video, from a recent segment on “America’s News HQ” on FOX News:
Now, it’s your turn.
Which of the two do you think is the worst example of an interview-gone-bad? Are the anchors at fault? If you had been either one of those authors, how would you have responded?
Media trainers and book publicists, what would you have told these authors after the fact if they had been your clients?
