After finishing his 25-year career tossing up softball questions to interviewees, American TV host Larry King appears to have found a way to cash in on his well-deserved reputation for bootlicking.
He was in Kyiv last week to “interview” Prime Minister Mykola Azarov. A few days earlier, he had been announced as a special adviser to iron ore miner Black Iron, which owns permits to develop two iron ore mines in central Ukraine.
It turns out the interview with Azarov may not be broadcast. It could just be a “friendly social discussion,” according to the company.
