Anyone interviewing Christian Drosten runs little risk of being criticized.
But the question: “Why always Drosten?” Is obvious.
It touches on one of the main problems faced by the media: those who speak most often are often the ones whose words are of most interest.
Of course, criticism could also signal envy.
Drosten does not speak to everyone, although he is always talking.
In his podcast or on Twitter.
When Drosten meets with journalists for a big interview, however, it is usually an event, well staged and illustrated.
Then everyone talks about Drosten and what he said.
The colleagues too.
Now there was another such event: the big Drosten interview in the “Spiegel”.
What he said about lockdown, school and virus mutants is prompt everywhere.
But something is also being discussed that Drosten did not say.
And the way in which questions were asked in this interview is also discussed.
