    Eli Rabett gets a video of an interview by journalist Susan McGinnis with climate inactivist Marc Morano.

    Susan McGinnis, had useful questions, but was unprepared to follow up with Morano in obvious ways. Further, the interview never really reached any scientific questions. In short, it was not a bad effort, but could have been much better.

    To put on my inner MT [Michael Tobis], it is clear that even good journalists do not know how to prepare for these interviews. Their training encourages them to be a mile wide and an inch deep, but for interviewing “media representatives”, who spend their lives looking for misleading sound bites they need to be inch wide and a mile deep or know someone who is, who can prepare them.

    This interview should be required viewing for anyone who wants to deal with Morano. You need to be very specific and very persistent.
