Everyone is interesting

I was listening to an interview with Larry King and when asked about his secrets, he said that he has always felt that, “everyone is interesting”.  This feeling can be seen through watching or listening to any of the myriad of interviews Larry King has or is conducting now on Hulu + . Larry is the king of the interview for a reason and I can’t help but think his interest in people has made him the king.

Larry listens and usually doesn’t speak when his guests are speaking. The new host on CNN seems to not do much listening and a lot of talking. While Pierce Morgan speaks the popularity of CNN plummets. If you have read any other posts of mine you may realize I am not a usually a fan of what is popular or the majority but in this case I may have to agree with the majority.  The replacement on CNN has accused guests of being stupid and exploited children of tragedies for ratings. 

Larry said “everyone is interesting” not everyone is stupid. We can often become consumed with the selfish and egotistical mind set, but when we do  we miss out on understanding and hearing other perspectives and ideas. When we speak over and accuse people of being stupid we are not allowing ourselves to enjoy our guests company.

You can argue that causing harm may be enjoyable but I would fire back with this wonderful quote:

The bottom line is that insulting and unhealthy competition should never have a place in a person who wants to positively affect the world, and Larry is right everyone at the very least, is interesting.
