At FRMediaTrain we’ve spent more than 40 years as reporters, firing questions at all types of people- athletes, politicians, criminals, public servants, lawyers and regular folks on the street.
We know exactly what to ask to get the answers we want from our unsuspecting and sometimes uncooperative, interviewees. HOWEVER, those techniques really just boil down to SIX questions (hat tip to Brad Phillips for breaking it down in list form):
- A QUESTION YOU DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER TO
- A QUESTION THAT ASKS YOU TO SPECULATE
- WE’LL ASK FOR YOUR PERSONAL OPINION
- A YES or NO QUESTION
- “THIRD PARTY” QUESTIONS
- AND REPEATED QUESTIONS … REPEATED!
To learn exactly how to identify and deal with these questions (without a “No Comment”) in a way that won’t come across as evasive, defensive or rude – send us an email – the consultation is free!
