Why is the media obsessed with interviewing the QAnon "shaman?"

Isn't this rather like interviewing an abuser who murders his ex-girlfriend for leaving him to understand and publicize his views on womwn?

1. Because he's very weird, an attribute that's always media-bait.

2. Simply because he's a freak and generates eyeballs. What good is the news if...

nobody watches or reads it?

4. So was John Gacy. I rather prefer Jacinda Ardern's...

...approach to these types.

5. Well, he's not a serial killer and child abuser, so he's "safer" to talk about.

8. Still not down to the level of a serial rapist. But, whatever, the public does love it some...

freaks and celebrities.

3. He is now celebrity clickbait.

That's why.

7. Maybe for the same reason F.B.I. behaviorists and forensic psychiatrists

are so fascinated to interview serial killers.

A lot of people don't care about the Why? but a lot of people do.

So many of the posts here at DU express frustration at the inability to comprehend these people. One way to try to comprehend them is to interview them and study how they think, and why they believe what they believe and do what they do.

9. His dramatic and colorful attire made him a good photo op.

And people want to know his story.

I think it is important that the public begins to understand the thought process of those participating in the insurrection.

12. His costume has made him a meme of ridicule in many, many editorial cartoons.

His costume has made him a meme of ridicule in many, many editorial cartoons.

And living with mommy does not enhance his image.

14. He cut a ridiculous figure but colorful.

It is showing the public the insanity of some Trump followers.

11. Best answer. It will of course put fellow idiot Ivanka out of a job.

She surely has other scams to run anyway.

Remember the bare-chested tattoo display?

That's why.

18. Deep inside, I wonder if the treatment of "news" as...

...entertainment might have had something to do in the destruction of American polity that began in 2015 and has yet to terminate.

They gave that idiot racist orange idiot a lot of airtime and thus moved the Overton window in a very tragic direction, making a once great nation into a carny barker show.

19. Absolutely agreed

That guy's ridiculous Viking hat and costume were childish demands to "Look at me." He was everywhere on Twitter, Facebook and other SMS but I'm not sure if he was shown on TV news so much. I can't remember if I saw his picture on TV.

I had no idea who the guy was, but my first thought was that he's an out-of-work actor trying to audition for a reality show, or something equally vapid. Turns out, he's just a Q-idiot.
