Rhodes Scholar Ronan Farrow Targets 'Average Joe' With New MSNBC Show NY Post
“My feeling ... is that there’s a frustration in how passive the experience of receiving news can be. I think that the time is right to step in with a show that’s all about giving you, the average Joe at home, the tool set on how you can get involved," he said.
Farrow, 25, said the show won't be just for young viewers. "Whether you are literally young or young in grappling with a lot of the dark and troubling stories about our leadership ... there is a shared frustration and a shared desire to answer, ‘What do we do next?’” Farrow said.
The report adds: "Farrow, whose resume includes work for UNICEF, the Barack Obama administration and Hillary Clinton, has gotten advice from network poster girl Rachel Maddow, who he says told him, 'Phrase every question as a statement.'”
Farrow is the son of Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra, as we reported previously.
