    Campaign manager Greg Schultz says Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden "will be giving more interviews and participating in debates, but only under certain conditions. These conditions include submitting all intended questions in advance. We will review these to determine which ones deserve a reply. For those that do we will prepare notes that Joe can use to identify which person to call on during the broadcast portion of the interviews and what answer he should give." Schultz said a similar procedure will apply to any debates between the candidates: "the questions will be supplied in advance. Inappropriate questions will be...
  • Why the FBI doesn't record interviews

    The Hill ^ | 05 26 2020 | James M. Casey
    The FBI’s interview of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn about his telephone conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak renewed a frequent question: Why doesn’t the FBI record its interviews? After all, if a recording of Flynn’s January 2017 interview were available, and not just a heavily redacted form FD-302, there might not be such controversy about whether Flynn lied to agents about the conversation. Despite the fact that recorded interviews can be helpful, there are good reasons the FBI does not record all interviews — even though a 2014 Department of Justice policy states they should default toward recordings....
  • Yes, you really do have to send a thank-you note after a job interview—here's why

    Yes, you need to send a thank-you note after a job interview. This might be unwelcome news, especially if you sided against the somewhat old-fashioned practice at the center of the recent, highly contentious online debate surrounding an article by Business Insider executive managing editor Jessica Liebman. In a post for Business Insider, Liebman wrote that when she first started hiring, she came up with "a simple rule: We shouldn't move a candidate to the next stage in the interview process unless they send a thank-you email." Plenty of people disagreed with Liebman, but her stance gets at the very...

    In 1965, Mary Jane McGuire, her husband Cyril and their three children received a letter from the Michigan State Highway Department. It informed them that their Lansing home, where the family had lived for the past decade, would be demolished to make way for construction of Interstate 496. The letter was followed by an offer of federal dollars to purchase their property, a number the McGuires felt was far below its actual value. The couple’s initial refusal to accept the offer meant they were one of the final families of their African-American neighborhood to be displaced for construction of the...

    I know we should be filtering idiots in our interview process but I'm sure Freepers who conduct interviews and the applicant keep saying "It's like, you know.." at least 10 times in 2 minutes.. we're not at the beach dude. so we told our headhunter to specifically tell the applicants if they ever saw the 2 words "it's like", they're out the door. Anyone think it's correct? PS in addition, another pet peeve is why would anyone go to a professional interview for a production manager in jeans? Where do these people come from? They dont teach interview manners anymore...

    At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G.

  • Constructing Truth: the FBI's (non)recording policy

    Forbes ^ | 27 July, 2011 | Harvey Silverglate
    Instead of electronically recording its interviews and interrogations, the FBI’s policy is to rely on agents’ typewritten “section 302 reports,” crafted to reflect the supposed substance of the exchange. At such sessions, one agent takes notes by hand while the second agent—in the traditional two-agent FBI interviewing team—conducts the interview/interrogation. Tape recordings are almost never done because such recordation is – believe it or not – against formal written FBI policy. Therefore, the 302 report becomes the sole arbiter of what was, and was not, said; moreover, as we will see below, any interviewee who contests its accuracy risks prosecution....

    Given what your mother always told you to do, you’d be surprised how few people do the one simple thing that can help push you closer to getting hired. That’s right. It’s the thank-you note. Just a quarter of entry-level job applicants typically sent a thank-you note after completing a job interview in 2017, according to iCIMS’ Class of 2018 Jobs Outlook report. iCIMS is a global talent acquisition software company. It might seem as dated as flip phones but sending a thank-you letter is critical, said Vicki Salemi, a career expert at Monster.com in New York. “There is no...

    President Trump has reportedly considered blocking his new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, from making more television appearances in the wake of a series of controversial interviews. The Associated Press reported that Trump and Giuliani speak frequently, but the president has been frustrated with Giuliani's public comments, particularly about a $130,000 "hush money" payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels. Trump was reportedly upset at Giuliani and Fox News host Sean Hannity following an interview last week in which Giuliani explained that Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, had "funneled through a law firm" the $130,000. Giuliani then revealed that Trump reimbursed Cohen, contradicting Trump's...

    Local Arizona high schoolers are interviewing veterans to publish their stories in a book titled Since You Asked. This is a hardbound anthology covering veteran's stories from WWII to the present and new volumes are published when approximately 60 new stories are collected. The book is divided into eras (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Cold War, Desert Storm, War on Terror etc) and the average story and associated pictures is about 3-4 pages long. It is a living project and volumes are published as soon as enough material is gathered. Each story is based on a student's interview with a veteran. The...

He tell us that every day when he signs off his One America News Network commentry, interview, and analysis show, The Daily Ledger. which airs at various times through out the 24 day. Ledger, an Emmy Award and Golden Mike award recipient, brings a right-side look at the political news, spilling out analysis, commentary, and humor, usually at the left's expense. His is biting commentary and observation, and exposes the progressive/liberal weaknesses, fallacies, and outright lies while nailing down the political right point of view.

    Ya don't say Hillary has a problem telling the truth. It’s just not something she does. There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of the biggest is that her whole career is predicated on 30 years of lying. Her life story is essentially one gigantic, tangled, web of falsehoods, half-truths, spin, and obfuscation. The thing is, when you’ve lived that way for so long, you can’t just stop. In order to push forward, you have to keep lying, and every new answer has to square with the previous set of fabrications. That’s a lot to keep straight,...

    Yesterday's hero was Charlie Sykes on WTMJ for the way he pinned Trump to the wall in a Easter weekend radio interview... real good stuff if you didn't catch it.  -HERE- Today we have Vicki McKenna at WISN doing more of the same  -so is it suddenly open season on Trump now? As the MSM's refusal to cover the news accurately gave rise to Breitbart and Drudge -and subsequently those two sold-out to Trump and are now creating an online market for the reality-based coverage they refuse to do- the 'conservative' media's daily tongue-bath of Trump has obviously created a MASSIVE...
  • Wrong number? Trump's TV telephone interviews in spotlight

    03/26/2016 6:31:36 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 37 replies
    NEW YORK (AP) — In television news, a telephone interview is typically frowned upon. Donald Trump's fondness for them is changing habits and causing consternation in newsrooms, while challenging political traditions. Two organizations are circulating petitions to encourage Sunday morning political shows to hang up on Trump. Some prominent holdouts, like Fox's Chris Wallace, refuse to do on-air phoners. Others argue that a phone interview is better than no interview at all. Except in news emergencies, producers usually avoid phoners because television is a visual medium — a face-to-face discussion between a newsmaker and questioner is preferable to a picture...

    Hey all! I've been inactive for a while but now I need your help. You see, back in 2007 I watched an interview with then candidate Obama wherein he actually discussed what he deemed his great strength as a candidate in the context of answering a question about if people who vote for him will end up being disappointed in a President Obama. I remember the conversation with reasonable clarity BUT I do not remember who the interview was with, what channel ... though I'm pretty sure that it had to be before the election. Here is why this is...
