We’re not exactly experts in the field of TV, but there is one thing we do know: If you’re going to be conducting an interview, it’s always advised that you actually do some preparation about your subject ahead of time. That way you don’t end up asking an Olympic gold medalist if he’s ever run before. Mo Farah was a star at the London Olympics, taking home the gold medal in the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races for host country London. His story was pretty well known for people who followed the Summer Games. WDSU anchor LaTonya Norton must not have been paying attention then, or done any research now, because she didn’t seem to be aware of Farah’s accomplishments. Farah ran a course record in the Rock ‘N Roll New Orleans Half Marathon Sunday, finishing in one hour, 59 seconds. He did an interview with Norton after his win, and she came off as clueless. “Haven’t you run before? This isn’t your first time …” she said during her questions. “What does it take to prepare for a marathon like this?” she asked, apparently unaware that it was a half marathon. Credit Farah for handling the whole thing nicely. He let Norton off the hook on all questions and tried to answer as best as he could.
