(The Raw Story)   CNN and FoxNews both breathlessly promote their "exclusive interview". With the same person. Who's been interviewed on both networks many, many, many times before. I mean, it's not like Hillary has been living under a rock the past 20 years, ya know   (rawstory.com) divider line 24

Ummm... Subby, an 'exclusive interview' means they're the only one asking questions at that time as opposed to a news conference. Yes, they both have exclusive interviews. Neither interview is appearing anywhere else; not the subject isn't appearing anywhere else.

In the same way that a public commode is your "exclusive shiathole" while you're sitting on it.

Well, there were two separate interviews instead of one joint interview, so it was exclusive.

I guess.

The interviews were also exclusive for their timeslot

No name, no matter how respectable is going to lead any credibility to CNN or Fox just by virtue of showing up on their screens.

Not if I straddle you and sit face-to-face. Come, Sybarite, we shall poop in tandem.

So there's no difference between an exclusive interview and an interview?

Yes.  In the FoxNews interview, for example, they asked exclusively about Benghazi.

CNN stopped covering the missing flight long enough to interview Hillary?

If Dan Patrick is doing an interview for his show, and SI is going to reprint excerpts, it's not exclusive to SI.

It'd be like 9/11, Benghazi, and the cancellation of Firefly... times a brazilian!

Exclusive technically just means your network's the only one with broadcast rights, right?

So what do you call the situation where a news organization pays for the right to be the sole entity to interview someone?

This happens often when a person first gains attention for whatever reason...

Decides?  That suggests that she has not already decided to run.

Apparently subby and Jon Stewart think your interview can only be "exclusive" if the subject has never spoken to anyone else ever.
