In that same article, The Politico quoted Soledad: âFor me, this is how you do documentary interviews. You become really knowledgeable about a topic so that you can have a really good conversation at a high level with somebody. The key for me is to be knowledgeable about the topic. Read everything. Prepare everything. Have every quote, poll number, report in front of you â itâs all about preparation, which is very similar to how you do a documentary.â
Weâll sure miss that hard-hitting reporting.
For a little over one year, those who tuned in enjoyed sharing their mornings with Soledad as she triumphed over facts, vanquished ratings and berated those insolent Republicans. But now, finally, she has been taken from us. And while weâre going to have to assume that Soledadâs impact on the United States wonât be lasting, and while we sure know for sure that she didnât teach us anything new, we can say with certainty that she reminded us of a few important lessons.
Like being an opinionated pundit has its place âand it's not when pretending to be a reporter.
And writing fluff pieces about how being an opinionated pundit is actually hard-hitting reporting, isnât hard-hitting reporting.
And even though being a pundit is cool, being a stupid pundit is often short-lived.
And now sheâs gone.
But weâre sure weâll see her again.
Maybe at Politico?
