He asks how did -- law background prepare you for TV great questions got in this and I hoisted on my journalist friends as -- unlike journalism I took an exam competency called the bar exam. We're journalist is raising Nancy I'm a journalist but kitty this is -- one great thing about legal education and we spent three years studying the difference between opinion and fact is a very different line and -- oftentimes gets blurred in the news between opinion and fact secondly -- I have a very strong aversion to the over use anonymous sources number in the courtroom. -- take the witness stand. Identify who you are you rating and you -- on the Republicans and nothing but the truth and so you know facts are very important to at least -- I hope I do my business. Like -- blurred line between opinion and fact -- just that the strictest of our legal education I think it helps that but. Another final things that we have a code of professional responsibility. And journalism. -- police each other by invited provide jumping all over each -- only get it wrong. But in the in the legal business is actually code of -- responsibility make you commit to -- certain behavior and certain. Parts are. -- that kind of sideways nice things the next question which is Kevin G Smith. Does her own opinion on a topic ever come into play with the question she asks -- certainly does and and I hope it's obvious but it does because look.

That I wasn't Smart enough to just say let's take a break I can't of the translation -- we'll be right back instead I panicked and went through the entire interview. -- asked the president Romania question -- it over here he responded so he stopped talking had no idea -- he said -- ask another question about a topic over here it wasn't really very Linear. And the reason why did -- just for questions is because I was afraid his answer which you are getting -- at -- in English was I just answered that question -- just said that. So I -- entire segment of the president Romania. And I never heard I never missed a single word he said because I didn't -- the translation and I was too -- too freaked out that I just went with the flow. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Part of politics.
