Neil Cavuto Interview…
Leaders Online has an interview with Neil Cavuto…
How have you seen Fox evolve over the years?
When I first started, I didn’t know it would become the sensation it has become. I was at CNBC. But I wasn’t concerned with whether or not FOX would succeed because Roger Ailes was starting it. I was eager to come here.
Once people are exposed to it and see the whole product, they like it. If it’s good quality, they will come. We grew by word of mouth.
It has been suggested that objectivity in the cable space no longer exists. Is that frustrating to hear and is it tough to put your personal feelings aside as you do your job?
I remember every criticism. But you get to a point where you have to do your job. It frustrates me when I call some of the Administration and they won’t talk to me, and I tell them, I’m not red or blue – I’m green; I’m following money. But I take pride in that I’ve had both Democratic and Republican Presidents on the show, and we try to be fair and not colored like the over-the-top opinion shows. Business types know that I’ve been doing this for a long time and I don’t go for “gotcha” questions, and I don’t yell and scream but try to keep a level approach and get to the bottom of things.
When I hear some say we’re not fair and balanced, it is bothersome.
