Hybridisation, Personalisation and Tribuneship in the Political Interview
journal contributionposted on 2015-11-25, 10:19 authored by Ian Hutchby
This article presents a comparative analysis of political interviewing in the contemporary environment of broadcast news. Beginning from a conversation analytic perspective, four types of political interview programme are described in terms of their different approaches to questions and answers; opinions and arguments; and neutrality, agency and advocacy. The analysis then turns to the different ways in which 'tribuneship' is manifested in different types of interview, comparing the representation of the public interest as found in both neutralistic and adversarial interviewing with the type of personalised and 'non-neutral' tribuneship found in hybrid political interviews.
