Today, the first of what is sure to be many extensively analyzed and patently ridiculous statements from the interview was released as a part of the promotion for the episode’s premiere tonight at 9.
In the clip, provided by VisionTV, a sweat-glistened Ford (well-regarded expert of changing the focus of his indiscretions) offers to take a drug test, presumably right in the room where he’s doing the interview. “If they want me to do a drug test–a urine test–I’ll do one right now. If there’s any drugs in my system…I have no problem doing that test,” Ford tells a stunned Conrad Black.
Black responds like any sane human would, stating, “Rob, there’s absolutely no need to do a urine test right now.”
Ford laughs, the obvious irony of his offer being how easy it must be to pass a drug test when you already know when it’s going to occur.
It’s a boon to Canadian television that Ford is bringing his media circus home. It’ll be interesting to survey the damage tomorrow. Which, sure as you’re born, we will do.
