Stressful Interviews

This from Brit Hume at Fox

A Tale of Two Guys

Viewers watching British technology expert Guy Kewney discussing a verdict on Apple Computers on the BBC last week may have concluded that he had no clue what he was talking about.

When asked whether he was surprised by the verdict in a case involving Apple computers, "Kewney" responded in a heavy French accent saying he was "very surprised" and adding, "When I came they told me something else and I am coming." And on the cost of Internet downloads, "Kewney" replied, "It is much better for development and to inform people what they want and to get the easy way and so faster if they are looking for." Turns out, a confused producer had the wrong "Guy," mistakenly grabbing Congolese job applicant Guy Goma from a BBC lobby.

The BBC reports that Goma later called the interview "very stressful" and wondered why the questions he was asked weren't related to the technical support job for which he'd applied.
