The Interview That Wasn't.
I thought that the Larry King exclusive interview with Michael Schiavo on Oct. 27, 2003 was a travesty, best described by Fr. Johansen as a "love-fest" of sympathetic sound-bytes (suitable for airing the morning after) and an endless stream of accusations. All in all it was a successfully-executed publicity stunt portraying a righteous husband mercifully seeking the death of his wife against heartless and inconsiderate parents who are simply "in it for the money."
