Analysis of John King's interview
Analysis of John King's interview. I asked John King of CNN : do you have an opinion on whether we should have gone to war with Iraq ? He said he had no opinions, then later you said he had an opinion, but he only shared Iit with his wife and finally, he said, we would be surprised how few opinions he has because he trains himself not to have opinions.
His first answer contradicts HIS second answer, because if he has no opinions he cannot tell his wife. Secondly, I do not believe he only tells his wife. Does he really expect us to believe that he doesn't discuss his views with his colleagues, or his close friends? It's just not believable. As for being surprised about how few opinions he has, I would hate to have to take him at his word, but if he insists I would. But training yourself not to have an an opinion is like training yourself not to think. Why would anybody want to do this and is it even possible. Anyway, I would put my money on him having plenty of opinions because I don't think you can do this job without having some smarts and opinions based on all his experience. In fact, he strkes me as a smart and friendly man who was nice enough to give us an interview,
