Peter Schiff should have known that, especially as it’s apparently a well-established practice at “The Daily Show”. (I’ve never seen the thing, but the editors did such a bad job carving up Jonah Goldberg that Jon Stewart was obliged to explain to viewers that the result was “choppy as hell”.) Personally, I enjoy going on ideologically uncongenial telly shows, but it’s important to have a few ground rules in the interests of self-protection: My preference with the ABC in Australia and the CBC in Canada is to do it live. That way, if the host is going to get his “Gotcha!” moment and nail your scalp up in his dressing room, he’s going to have to earn it himself, rather than leave it to a Stewart-sized entourage and the marvels of technology.
