    Maybe its a good thing, he says what he thinks. He doesn’t baby anyone or worries about their feelings. He’s truthful. Everyone knows how the media is, look at what the stars go through.

Do you remember the games in school where you made something up and whispered to the kid behind you and then they whispered to the kid behind then and by the time it was at the end it was totally different. Maybe the media only hears part of it.
