Poll:
After watching the full interview, do you think KING 5 News portrayed the governor fairly?

SEATTLE - On June 22nd, Reporter Susannah Frame met with Governor Chris Gregoire to do an interview about her investigative series on the ferry system.

 

It was set up with her communications staff and we made it clear that the sole purpose of the interview was to get her overall reaction to the findings. 

 

However, we were surprised when she told us at the beginning that she had not seen the stories.  Even more surprising, throughout the interview she did not acknowledge and would not respond to any questions about the systemic problems in the ferry system that we exposed.You can watch the story we did that night by clicking here.

 

In a recent Seattle Times report, the governor's spokesperson said the reason the governor came off dismissive in the interview is because of how the story was edited.

 

Above is the raw footage from that interview.  The full interview. We'd like you to decide.  Did we portray the governor fairly?
