But you haven’t answered the question

How many times must a journalist ask a question before it gets answered. About eight times if your Newsnight host Jeremy Paxman.

As you’d see in this clip the BBC’S Paxman persists and persists until his guests answer the question. And when they don’t answer he let’s them know they haven’t in his ever so polite English accent. Either way fruit of this is pure entertainment and the lesson to budding journalist to listen carefully to whether the interviewee has answered their question.
