Tim Russert anti-interviews Steve Martin

I got excited seeing this listing on MSNBC that Tim Russert would interview Steve Martin. So I’m halfway through watching it (the show re-airs at 6 p.m. today, 2 a.m. and noon Sunday on MSNBC) and feel stymied because Russert isn’t even really trying to interview Martin. It’s more like, "So, tell me about this chapter." "Now tell me about this chapter." Yes, Martin’s book is great. Buy it off my Amazon.com link. Read it. But if you tell me we’re going to see an interview, I want some more insight. Well, excuuuuuse me.
