A Conversation with John King (includes timecodes)
There’s a lot in this conversation, from learning the magic wall, to the world of cable news, politics, and much much more.
13:06 takes us into the magic wall, 14:25 about his first experience with it.
18:50 begins the talk about cable news directly, lasts to 27:00 speaking about the effects of FOX and MSNBC, 22:10 for elaboration about how CNN may change. 24:13 “…smarter, informative…” “…and to bring a more diversity of programming, do some science and technology programming, do some health programming, but also put an emphasis on smarter politics…”, 25:00 “we got lazy” then ”we got reactive,” 26:15 “we should remember we are in the curiosity business”
45:00 - 47:00 is a little bit about the current White House, including a comment about CBS News, plus their social media focus.
53:10 begins a discussion about doing presidential debates, runs through 1:03:00
1:03:00 begins some talk about Wolf, including something rather humorous about 1:06:30.
1:21:13 he speaks about Spitzer following a question about politicians surviving scandals, but he has a … reaction about him about 10 seconds after this timecode.
Plenty of fun bits throughout this long conversation, but I may just leave that to you to explore if you wish.
