The Boss

As many of you already know, Tiger Woods former coach hank Haney wrote a "tell all" type of book in which he outlines some details about Tiger Woods family life, etc. Hank Haney decided to push this book and the "Boomer and Carton" Show, and Carton told him he was disgusted by his betrayal of Tiger. "Scum of the earth" and several other similar classifications resulted during the barrage.

Do you think it is fair for Carton to ambush a guest like this?
Thoughts on this?

Here's the audio of the interview

I am not a radio host or journalist. I have no idea what goes on behind a successful program or interview. I know nothing of how to dig out facts to make a compelling piece of investigative or revealing news. I do feel, however, that this morning's interview with Hank Haney went beyond inappropriate or professional. I can understand your opinions on what and why this man wrote of in his book - but to continuously insult, interrupt and demean the person as you did went beyond the purpose of the forum you enjoy with the listeners of WFAN's morning program. I felt uncomfortable, then embarrassed and then angry as the "interview" progressed. My takeaway from the show today was that you were trying to either "circle the wagons" for your fellow public personalities or trying to simply discredit Haney in a similar way as a criminal attorney would do to the star witness against his guilty client. I have listened to you now for about 5 years, I know you could have put across the same message in a much better way. Fond memories of the laughs and insights I have garnered from your show will now be forever replaced with Carton screeching "coward" at an old man on the other side of a phone. You could have done so much better......

Every once in awhile Carton will pull this as a ratings ploy. If Craig carton was so outraged by this guy, he could have not helped him sell a million books and not make the the book more successful directly as a result of the family content, but he would rather draw attention to the show for ratings.
