Meanwhile, it is a difficult time for journalists since there is extreme competition leading to mass retrenchment at BBC. The producer Sam decides to pursue Prince Andrew in order to get the scoop before Jeffrey Epstein is arrested again so as to keep Newsnight on air. However, she faces a major obstacle from her own team mate including ambitious reporter Emily Maitlis.

For what reason does Emily change the tone of accusation used in the interview?

At first The Newsnight team decides to cross examine prince Andrew outright, ask him about his sex allegations directly related to Ghislaine Maxwell dealings and how he was connected to Epstein. Sam thinks this way- She believes they are stabbing Palace on its back.

And that’s why initially Prince agrees because Sam says that he will be given enough time and space to explain himself so that his reputation can be cleared off. Emily has this information but inside her heart she still wants justice for these victims especially when they’re having nowhere else turn; She opts not challenge Sam; let’s go through all what he wants until Andrews starts by sharing some facts about his decision o choose Newsnight over several international channels and include his first meeting with Epstein.

Why was such an interview such a mess?

Even though she really desires destroying prince Andrew for good reasons, Emily holds herself back. But instead he rather ruins everything by himself through his PR training. He starts off being too loose with words. His speech is disjointed, he stutters and focuses on the wrong things; at one point she follows up with another query asking if he staged a birthday party for Maxwell and instead goes round all about why he couldn’t have done a birthday that day talking of a shooting weekend.

She then asks why in 2010 for breaking off their friendship did he stay at convicted sex offender’s house. Scoop takes Andrew another second before he blurts out that it was an appropriate place to stay. In the interview, when Emily talks about what Virginia said concerning him behaving sexually toward her, things take an ugly turn. To begin with, none of those acts ever happened,” while articulating this phrase.

By questioning whether Virginia lied, Andrew finally admits that this is hard for him to respond to. He tries to fix it by saying he doesn’t remember meeting her but the damage is done. At the end, Emily gives him time to close in form of apology but because of his cattiness, he does not do so.

Does having such an interview save Andrew’s reputation?

According to the palace –the interview went well and therefore they support Prince Andrews completely. BBC teasers suggest that Andrew has been frank and sincere which makes Andrew feel positive about it together with his assistant Amanda.

But, as soon as the interview goes public, jokes and memes flood the internet, which is preposterous. They make fun of his hyperhidrosis condition and his obsession with the pizza partying; they also sympathize with Emily’s perpetual side-eye. As a result, everyone calls him a disgrace.

He quit his royal responsibilities and issued an official statement from the palace in support of the victims for fixing it.

Does Sam get any credit for this?

In Scoop, at first her colleagues don’t like Sam because they think she does yellow journalism and sensational news. They think she’s a problem and not one of them. She wants to have an interview with Andrew simply because BBC has recently laid off employees and Newsnight needs something big to be kept alive.

However, there are several problems that Sam encounters about this interview after it is set up where she feels sad since it’s going to be Emily who appears on TV instead of herself yet all the hard work is done by her. While she constantly occupies herself away from her son throughout nights when he has grown up together with her mother performing babysitting duties late into evening hours of which only pushes in order that her mom can remind her what important work she is doing.
