If that doesn't prove that this interview was scripted nothing does.
Burns demeanor is sickening to watch.
Brian Williams lost credibility years ago with his many untrue stories about his exploits as a journalist. The dead body floating by his hotel in New Orleans story after the Hurricane was the last straw and is why he is with MSNBC and not NBC proper.
Perhaps he sits too close to Roswell Rachel Maddow who lives in Northampton Massachusetts next to Burns alma mater Hampshire College, Amherst Massachusetts.
I'll bet the talented Mr. Burns alternative education at Hampshire College's is their only success story.
All said PBS owes Jim Reeves and us fans a separate documentary, as they have done for lesser artists.
