News interviews gone wrong


News interviews gone wrong - Interviews Gone Wrong, All the teleprompters, cue cards and station breaks in the world couldn’t have saved these interviews from becoming such memorable train wrecks. Check out the best of the worst interviews that spiraled out of control — from sports Q&A’s gone awry to a press conference that took on a life of its own.
