An interrogatory discussion in which one party attempts to elicit from the other information that is of interest solely to the first party and not to any readers who might not have cushy fucking health plans or financial stability or white privilege or business cards or whatever the fuck.
Ex. “Mr. President, what a surprise to find you here at the place you always are! I’m only a New York Times reporter, so I’m not prepared to ask you any substantive questions about current news issues such as Puerto Rico or taxes or future issues such as the privatization of America’s infrastructure, but would you be willing to do an innerview anyway?”
“Okay, but make sure you don’t ask any follow-up questions, so people can focus on that rather than on the shitty original questions.”
“But–I mean, okay!”
