Why Fareed Zakaria is the Smartest TV Host
When you manage a huge "get" the smartest thing you can do is mine it for every possible gem. Fareed Zakaria was among a handful of TV hosts lucky enough to get an interview with Dame Helen Mirren while she was performing in The Audience on Broadway and had Woman in Gold opening. She did not do many appearances. Unlike the other royally privileged hosts, Fareed did something very clever. Two things, really. He broke his audience into two sittings and used one of them to ask a question no one else has asked her.
