No spin and The Daily Show – Pitching in the "no-spin era"

Wow, it’s interesting to read about other people having the same reaction to When Interviews Go Bad on The Daily Show: Presentation Zen: Pitching in the “no-spin era”. I watched this with Elisa and it was just painful

Jon and Torie just weren’t communicating very well at all. Near the end of the interview, I remember Mr. Stewart saying something like, “Okay, I think we’ve made it past the cover page!”

All I can say is that it reminds of the days when I presented to a group of people way more than I do nowadays. Sometimes, I’d get an obtuse hard-to-understand just what the heck the person was asking kind of question. My crude attempts to do some active listening to replay back to them what I understood their question to be usually resulted in frustrated “Oh, never mind” from them.
