Question Of The Week: February 1, 2011

When working with reporters, is it unprofessional to request to see their questions before an interview?

I always thought so, but many of my clients have been employing this practice successfully for years – and many reporters have been willing to comply. If so many reporters are willing to share their questions, I can’t help wondering whether or not I’m just “old school” for not asking?
So here’s this week’s question of the week:

Should You Request To See a Reporter’s Questions Before an Interview?

If so, when? If not, why not? And if you’ve done so before, how have reporters reacted to your request?
