CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Dean Richards: Do you feel like you’re a different person, maybe a better person? … than you were four years ago, five years ago.

Where’s the Professional Courtesy?
Considering that Mel Gibson probably thought he was on WGN-TV to promote his movie ‘Edge of Darkness.’ However, he soon realized he was being ambushed about troubles in his personal life. Apparently, there is a media element that is not forgiving. WGN-TV reporter Dean Richards started to sound a little more like a psychologist than a reporter.

On January 29, 2010, WGN-TV aired an interview that Richards conducted with actor Mel Gibson via a remote feed about his new movie, Edge of Darkness, and then queried Gibson about how the public perceives him, given his noted drunken outburst and anti-Semitic rant while being arrested in 2006. The line of questioning annoyed Gibson, who told Richards, “That’s almost four years ago, dude. I mean, I’ve moved on. I guess you haven’t.” After the interview, Gibson — unaware that the camera was still rolling and that he was still on air — took a sip of coffee and used the term “asshole,” presumably directed at Richards. Gibson and his publicist both later claimed that the remark was directed at Gibson’s publicist.

CELEBTV.COM describes the segment this way …
Kelli Zink: “Mel Gibson sure has a funny way of apologizing. Watch the actor lose his cool while promoting his new movie ‘Edge of Darkness.’

WGN used the keywords ‘angry’ and ‘rant’ to classify the video segment on YouTube.

    Way to go Mel!

    Gibson was ambushed? Seriously? Someone didn’t do their research. If you watched the entire interview, most of it was about the movie. Asking Gibson during an interview for his first movie since his incredibly offensive remarks that sidelined his career how he thinks the public now perceives him is a legitimate question that any interviewer should’ve asked (especially since Richards told Gibson’s people he would do so ahead of time and agreed to it). Not doing so would’ve made the interview nothing more than a commercial for his movie. It was Gibson that asked Richards to detail the incidents when he lied (again) by acting as though he didn’t know what incidents Richards was referring to. And based on Gibson’s condescending response during the interview and name-calling after, you’d have to be headless to not realize that Gibson either doesn’t realize the magnitude of his actions that sidelined him or that he just couldn’t care less. If he did, he would’ve simply said something like, I screwed up big time and I hope the people I offended (and who spend their hard-earned dollars to continue making me a millionaire) realize that my regret is truly sincere and that they see my movie. After seeing the entire unedited interview, all I see is a man who continues to think disparagingly of Jews, women and gays.
