Dave Pollard points to a new reporting technique where the reporter’s questions have been edited out leaving only the interviewee’s answers in tact:

I
listened to a fascinating interview on the radio the other day. What
made it fascinating was that the interviewer’s voice, and questions,
had been entirely edited out. What you heard was a very eloquent
explanation of a difficult topic, in which the questions were tacit,
unheard. Compared to most radio articles, op-eds and even interviews,
this spot was tight, engaging and informative. I dubbed it (in the
spirit of the term Un-Conference) an Un-Interview.
