I’m grateful to Tal Schneider, a foreign news reporter for Maariv who interviewed me earlier today for the newspaper’s Daily Interview feature. It’s a profile of a newsmaker in interview format. For Hebrew readers, she captured my ideas exceedingly well and I was pleased with the result.
Sometimes the TV interviews, in which they edit snippets of my ideas into tiny sound bytes, leave something to be desired. Not to mention that in “packaging” me for their audience, they tend to play up the more lurid, sensational aspects, which isn’t at all how I see myself or how I want my audience to see me. This blog isn’t tabloid fodder, though it may be easier to sell it to a broad audience in that fashion as if it were.
For the fashionistas among you, in this photo I’m wearing the Jewish Voice for Peace Hope T-shirt.
