The first rule of cross-examination is you’ve got to know, or not care, what the answer is to your questions.  Since journalism schools clearly don’t do much teaching about asking simple open-ended questions to elicit an answer instead of making a point, maybe they should try teaching at least the basics of adversarial questioning.
