Poor journalism

The interviewer puts words into the mouths of her subject
Doesn’t do the serious topic justice

Disappointing

I found this podcast after listening to the fantastic Ron Iddles one. This very much pales in comparison - did I hear it say ‘New Idea investigates’ at the beginning g? Because that would make sense - very tabloidy rather than proper investigative journalism.
