Wolf Blitzer stopped by the set of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live” last night to chat with Andy Cohen, briefly mentioning his new CNN documentary “Voices of Auschwitz” (that will premiere on Jan. 27).
During the episode, Wolf gave some good journalistic advice to a caller who asked, “Wolf, if you had one piece of advice to give to any aspiring journalist, or journalist starting out in their career, what would it be?”
“Practice, practice, practice,” replied Wolf. “You want to be a cellist? You gotta practice. You wanna be a tennis player? You gotta practice. You wanna be a journalist? You gotta get out there and practice. Start reporting, start writing — just do it, do it and do it, and then you’ll work your way up.
Later, in a lightning-round of questions called “Plead the Fifth,” Cohen turned the tables on Wolf by putting him on the hot seat. The host of “The Situation Room,” however, kept calm and carried on…
Cohen: You have interviewed many presidents — Obama, Reagan, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Carter and Ford — Which president intimidated you the most?
Blitzer: George H.W. Bush.
When asked why, he responded: “I don’t know. He just did. All of them were very nice. All of them were extremely friendly. All of them were gracious. I don’t know why but maybe he just intimidated me a little bit. Because Bill Clinton was.. You know… You know Bill Clinton”
Cohen: Who is the dumbest politician you’ve ever met?
Blitzer: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran.
Cohen: Who is the biggest blowhard on CNN?
Blitzer: I plead the fifth…
