How loathsome is CNN III

posted by Rob at 4:26 PM

Classic Larry King. Classic why CNN is loathsome (via TVNewser):
"There was a revealing moment during the interview when Costas had engaged Armstrong in a very interesting discussion of the blood testing, and how tests were supposed to be anonymous, etc. Nice two shot of them chatting, etc.

All of a sudden, King loudly interrupts, "Are you and Sheryl Crowe going to get married?" Armstrong looks startled, and Costas, reacting very quickly, says, "Well, I wasn't going to ask you that question at this moment, but what do you have to say about that?"

Armstrong says it's something he'd tell Sheryl before he'd tell Larry or a national audience, to which King says, "You mean -- ASK -- Sheryl." All through the answer are shots of Sheryl and Lance, obviously queued up for the answer.

Cut to commercial. It was a perfect illustration of how Costas does business and how King operates. Doesn't matter if the question makes sense, it's on his list and they have the pix, so go with it."
I hope rumors are true and Costas is the future for this show.
