After seeing the Chris Cuomo interview with Amanda Knox Tuesday (it took a day for the shock wear off) I was left wondering, what exactly did he think he was going to accomplish with his overbearing persistence? Did he think he was going to pressure her into throwing herself on her knees and confessing to sexual deviance. AHA...I solved the case- at last. Although Knox was answering his sex questions over and over- still he persisted until Amanda was growing visibly uncomfortable. And after reading a lot of comments on the internet a great many people were also uncomfortable with his tactics- which seemed more like a grilling than an interview.
After 4 years in prison and having endured all kinds of "insensitivity" and interrogations by the Italian police and courts, I don't think she was really up for this kind of thing- however, she did handle it well I thought. Let's face it, there were a lot of different routes this so-called interview could have taken- he didn't really have to go for the eyes.
For those of you who missed this....'interview', there are plans to show it again Saturday. I don't know how much Chris Cuomo knows about this case- but if he did his homework he would know that there is no evidence pointing to Knox being guilty. And the so-called 'deviant sex game gone wrong' is a fabrication of the Italian prosecution, with no evidence at all that anything of the kind ever took place.
I think Amanda held up very well, considering the man's questions and the hard look on his face, and if he deserved a glass of water tossed on him after the interview, is of course a matter of opinion. But hey- nobody likes a bully.
