Make Interviews Fair

Short-tempered punk revolutionary, Chris Martin, has walked out of a Radio 4 interview stating "[I'm] not really enjoying this" before adding that he doesn't really like "having to talk about things".

Perhaps somebody at the Beeb should have explained the premise of an interview before asking Chris questions about "things".

Martin, baritenor vocalist for background-hum-terrorists Coldplay, accused the interviewer of "journalistically twisting" things when he suggested the singer had a lyrical obsession with death.

This kind of underhand journalism is simply not acceptable. Particularly from Radio 4.

I want answers, and I want them to be delivered by an aging but well-hung Irishman.
