Patterico Interviews Chuck Philips

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:54 pm



Tonight I spoke with Chuck Philips for about an hour and a half, on topics ranging from Anthony Pellicano to Suge Knight to Waymond Anderson.

Due to various demands on my time, I can’t immediately publish a post about my talk with Philips. For now, suffice it to say that he acknowledged writing the letters discussed in my post from Sunday night, and defended what he said in those letters.

I plan to publish a more detailed account of his reaction to that post as soon as I get the chance, hopefully by Wednesday evening — or sooner, if I can manage it.

  1. OK, you’re drawing my interest. And the Times ought to be looking to hire you. Except that they’d probably just try to shut you up about this.

  3. Mmmmm . . . no thanks.

  4. Good for Chuck Phillips. And congratulations to you, Patterico. It is a compliment, on several levels, to have your “opposition” willing to talk to you. I’m looking forward to it.

  5. Well, Patterico, if you won’t take the job, how about recommending me? Have huscarl, will travel.

  6. I was worried he would deny the letters. The media whores usually stonewall it, to wit, Dan Rather.

  7. Patterico,

    All this stuff you have done in this subject is above and beyond impressive. Good job man!

  8. Patterico – You are to be commended. My first question would have been, “So, why are you such a mendoucheous liar?”. The interview would have only gone downhill from there.

    He knows that you’re a prosecutor, right? That you’re going to eat him for breakfast?

    This is, of cource, why I will never do well in politics. :)

  11. Where is Philips working now? With his qualifications he should be at the NYT.

    Nahhhh… He never actually INVENTED stories.
