For every journalist, it is important to do basics right before interviewing a famous personality. This is taught at the cub reporter level. However NBC’s senior journalist Megyn Kelly it seems did not do her homework properly and as a result is being slammed on Twitter for her incredible question to Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is on his Russia visit, an ANI report said.
Yesterday, the NBC anchor stood alongside Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, before they went in for dinner, a day before International Economic Forum. Modi, who has about 30.3 million followers on social media site Twitter instantly knew who she was. He had seen her photo on the streets of a wet St. Petersburg, holding a black umbrella. During the brief meeting, when the prime minister and Megyn exchanged pleasantries, he laughed and said to her, “I have seen your tweet. With the umbrella, ” the paper said.
She laughs back asking “Oh!” she says, “are you on Twitter?” PM Modi just shakes his head in agreement. While PM did not say anything at all, that did not stop the twitterati from having a field day. This question of her’s has in fact set the social networking site on fire. And no, none of the comments are complimentary to Kelly. Surely, she must have learned a lesson that she will not forget, ever.
Modi : I saw your pics with umbrella..oh yaa..
Megyn Kelly : You’re such a Snooper..
Modi : Yes..Yes..????
