The NO Interview

The president apparently asked Le Nouvel Obs to interview him. Denis Olivennes, the director, and Michel Labro, the editor, accepted the request but did not consult with the magazine's staff. There was a fuss. The result is excerpted here (I don't have the print magazine). All I can say is, I understand why the NO journalists were miffed to have been bypassed. This is supposed to be Sarko's assessment of his first two years as president? These are his confessions of error? The questions are softballs, the errors are venial (Today I wouldn't have lost it with Joffrin, I respect the fellow, I had to grow into the job, etc.) Well, maybe they saved the good stuff for print.
