Lightweight Interviewer, Matt Lauer, Scores KO in Bush Interview
NEW YORK Lightweight Today Show co-anchor, Matt Lauer, scored the biggest upset interview so far with George Bush, getting an admission from Bush that he thought the war on terror could not be won.
Bush gave this reply to a question by Lauer on whether Bush had watched any of the Olympic coverage on NBC.
Showing his inexperience in serious television journalism, Lauer failed to follow up Bush's admission with probing questions. Instead he asked the President what his favorite color was, and whether he was missing his dog, Barney.
White House officials said the President had misspoken, explaining that what the President meant to say was that he had seen some of the Olympic coverage, and that he had choked up when Stars and Stripes was played at one of the medal ceremonies.
Interviewed later about his interview with Bush, Lauer was dumbfounded to learn that he had scored a journalistic coup. "What? He said that? Gee, I wasn't listening because I was trying to memorize the next question."ť
