Johann Hari, who has written for the Independent over the past decade, said in a blogpost entitled "Interview etiquette", written late on Monday, that when "I've interviewed a writer" he had "occasionally" chosen to quote "the idea as they expressed it in writing, rather than how they expressed it in speech" to make their thoughts clearer.In his subsequent explanation Hari stresses, "I have only ever done this where the interviewee was making the same or similar point to me in the interview that they had already made more clearly in print." However, others have pulled up examples of Hari pulling quotes from interviews given to other journalists.
