Passion of the Soundbyte

Thanks to Think Progress from pointing out a hilarious moment from CNN's Larry King's coverage of the pope's passing. When interviewing Jim Caviezel, whose main qualification for commenting on the pope is that he played Jesus in the movie, Passion of the Christ, King said:

"Jim, you think he's with Jesus now? We only have 30 seconds."

His answer is irrelevant. The question itself depicts the media's ability to ask important, even deep questions and expect answers that fit in 30 second or less.
