The New York Times Editorial Board planned to interview Tom Steyer as part of its endorsement process, but he ended up interviewing himself. Example:
Do I think that all those things you’re saying are true? Yes. Am I someone who’s actually worked on that? Yes. Am I someone who’s taken a pledge to give most of my money away while I’m alive? Yes.
They were all softball questions. More than a dozen “Am I” or “Do I” softballs.
Was it really annoying? Yes!
