While generally I would have taken the "yes" option, but under specific conditions.
I have been requested to be interviewed here on radio, TV, and press.
when I state my conditions, I usually get a never mind.
My conditions would make it difficult for fox, bucause, they almost guarantee, that what gets published, is an honest report of what I said.
Fox, and samilar have a way of setting up the person being interviewed to look bad, be misquoted, or made to seem a fool.
In my case, if it is a reporter I don´t know well enough to trust. I say "yes, but only if I can read what is about to go into print, and have the right to refuse to be quoted in the press.
If it is live TV or Radio, this is another problem, because if live there is no good recourse. So my condition is that instead of one on one, we agree to a third party moderator as in a debate.
If a pre-recorded item, the entity doing the recording has to agree that the result is my intellectual property, which would require me to approve as to if, or how it is aired.
About 20 years ago, I appeared in the media about 10 times a year, now it is seldom more then twice. In one case that made the local TV company unhappy, I even told them where I wanted
the camera placed, or I would not participate. When they objected, I indicated the conract, and told them that I would simply go home unless I had my way. This might sound picky, but in this case
the shots, only included me periferally, with my voice talking about what the camera was recording, in the then set up, what I was saying would not only be false, but would reflect badly on those
in the scene. This is a common behind the scenes problem in films where the author has a right to decided if the film reflects what he wrote in the book, where as the typical director, is more interested
in the cenematic affect of the shots, whether they reflect the original book or not. There was a film a while back where Alan Alda played the part of a historian involved in a film about an historical event.
Hollywood, hires "house" historians to vet films for accuracy and the result often cause stress between all involved. In my case, when I am on, it is not about money, so I figure I am doing the production
a favor, so I set my own standards. Fox News is famous for controlling the context, timing, edicting of their product to support their POV,
