Re in the room to her own feelings at the time to the mood of the subject Often she leaves the interview with an entirely different perception of the interviewee while sometimes it is all too sadly re confirmed Airhead explores just these moments All we normally see are the interviews but what were the conversations that preceded them or the shouting matches that ended them From her interviews with US Presiden. Whistle stop tour of some of the memorable moments in recent years that has moulded and brought Newsnight s Emily Maitlis to TV news and current affairs watchers attentionElections Donald Trump and Brexit have brought such presenters to the forefront despite the frustration that political interviews and programmes drone on about stuff we find altogether boring Emily Maitlis is a driven journalist in a male dominated world who beyond her natural good looks has succeeded at the BBC and fronted Newsnight with a degree of grace and an ear for a storyPost Paxman she has come to our attention but she has been around for longer than than we may think Airhead The Imperfect Art of Making News is Maitlis at her best describing what in her professional life she loves most Getting that killer interview remembering to ask the right uestions and delivering a piece to camera that provides clarity and context Here in a book format she is able to unpack this process and explain her fears rationale and motivations to be the best she can and tell those storiesI found the book a compelling read the many interviewees all have something to say and her role is secondary to the whole She is honest fearless reflective and empathetic in this process and that comes across in her writing and recalling these meetings How they came about the issues at that time what needed to be addressed and why sometimes things don t go to planIt is her dry humour that also gets conveyed and I get no sense of a woman who feels she is the leading star or the main player What translates is her sense of teamwork a shared vision and focus coupled with the support and encouragement she receives and reciprocates to her Newsnight buddiesEmily s humility also shines through Although not a perfectionist she worries if she missed something out or came over too forcibly She cares about those she meets and isn t just out for a good sound biteShe comprehends the agenda of the politician or celebrity and why it isn t always possible to elicit the answers she desires But she still beats herself up if she feels she has been overtaxing or too soft in her uestioningAbove all she is an intelligent journalist a hard working individual and the consummate professional Her book is refreshing and illuminating and allows insight into her work and because of her openness perhaps reveals far than she d say if someone else interviewed herI hope Airhead is widely read it isn t a dry political read but a commentary on our busy modern lives It is a book that will appeal to a broad section of readers since it is well written engaging and filled with wit emotion and energy However the uality that stands out most is the author s integrity
