I can count on the fingers of one hand the times I’ve intentionally watched Larry King conduct an interview. Only the one with Marlon Brando, complete with kisses, springs to mind. (And a moment where Donald Trump told Larry that his breath was bad, but maybe that was something I saw in a clip.) Perhaps there was a time when he was good at his job, or anyway better than he is now. The meager pleasure I’ve taken in seeing him at work has been in marveling at how frequently his follow-up questions betray that he didn’t understand his interviewee’s initial response – or, more probably, that Larry just wasn’t listening to it.
