Chicago media members name their least favorite celeb interviews of 2013
There are few things more important to me than credibility. So when Pete Wentz told me Fall Out Boy wasn’t getting back together, only for Fall Out Boy to announce it was reuniting the same day my story ran in the Tribune and RedEye, I was furious. He could have just said “no comment” when I asked about the reunion rumors, but Wentz, who I was somewhat friendly with and may have interviewed more times than anyone else did during Fall Out Boy’s hiatus, instead denied the rumors to my face and said “Don’t hold your breath.” And because I didn’t feel stupid enough about the whole thing, Wentz tweeted “You can take a breath now” once the news broke, poking fun at my story.
