When I was watching an interview of a celebrity on the TV I noticed the interviewee sitting cross legged unlike the journalist who was interviewing her which reminded me of a similar scene years ago, however there was one difference –the female interviewer crossed her legs with the toe of her left leg pointing straight at her subject. It was obvious who was the humble of the two which set me thinking. Journalists like bureaucrats are expected to be self effacing and not wear their knowledge on their sleeve. The former should try to bring out the best in their interviewees who have a lot of their experience to share for the readers/viewers to know and benefit. But today when I watch the anchors on television channels, I feel they are only out to overpower their subjects all out to prove who comes out the winner. Perhaps the only rule of etiquette they seem to follow today is not sitting cross legged but in every other respect they break rules laid out for a professional journalist.
