Agreeing to an interview with a reporter can be nerve wracking but also exciting! Here are some pro-tips on what not to say to the media -- before and during your interview. Some of this might not immediately occur to you as off-putting, so be mindful, use common sense and do your best to avoid the following statements/questions.
1. “Can you send me the article before you publish it?”
2. “No comment”
3. “Don't quote me on that"
4. “Can I see the questions in advance?"
5. Never lie, expand the truth or provide your personal opinion
