OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

Got these from Stewart Haas Racing on Twitter:

Tweets: Can you imagine ??? LOL

StewartHaasRcng
Stewart-Haas Racing | Kannapolis, NC Following
Role reversal: Stewart now interviewing the UofA students. These students have some unique and fresh insight. U'll see 'em after graduation.

Tony Stewart: Racecar driver, team owner, humanitarian and teacher...molding future generations of the media.

Media who follow this Twitter feed are wondering what's more frightening: the coming tornadoes or Stewart serving as a media mentor.

The UofA students are taking an advanced magazine writing class and Stewart is telling them of his dealings with the media...good and bad.

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

Hopefully they'll learn something & start respecting the drivers after a bad day at the track & contact the driver after a cool down, whether that day or the next day. As long as they get a story, that's all that's important. Sure we'd like to know what happened right then & there, but to get a respectable story the next day when things are settled (or better) will be better for everyone.

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

I love Tony but he can be such a dick to journalists. It all depends on which day you catch him and what he thinks of your question. And I don't buy that it's because they all ask him stupid questions because I've seen him go off on someone who asked what I felt was a completely appropriate question. And he's that way not just after a race but at a scheduled news conference too.

I just don't think he likes media at all. The man just wants to race. I think he would give up all the fame and most of the money just to go back to obscurity and race in the dirt. That's just me. But I don't think it's cool when he's an #### to a journalist.

Now he seems to have a HUGE heart and I think he likes all the charity stuff but dang, I would not want to interview that man unless it's a one on one interview and a Schlitz is involved.

Oh come on tlmerk, i use to feel the same way you do,but when i put myself in his position-i'd probly be worse than Tony.lol Would love to race in Nascar if it were possable,the racin' and money would be awesome,but i couldn't take all the crap that goes along with it.

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

Hey Wolf I will sing my praises for Tony's driving from the rooftops and I love how honest and forthright he tries to be. I think that's why I first started liking him, that and his history in sprint cars but I personally think if your magazine/newspaper asks you to interview Smoke, you need to ask for hazard pay. :-)

I know... I can hear it in my own head... Lighten up, that's just Tony, that's just one reason why we like him! :-)

But it looks like he was nice to these kids and that was the purpose of this thread anyway... then I came on and became the jerk! :-)

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

Hey TLMerk, just ONE Schlitz? i'd need a case, MINIMUM!

And i could not possibly agree with everything else you said any more. So knock off the "i'm a jerk" talk!

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

I think Tony is the perfect racer to mentor the students. At least they will know first hand what they will be up against and perhaps learn a few rules before they go left field with stupid questions. Personally I think NASCAR should make a few rules and see to it the media sticks to it. I know that's part of their job to interview but do our US and State government legislators who actually work for us answer questions when they don't feel like it? Of course not. Do they hide from the public? Yes, and they lie like bandits when they feel like it. Which profession is more important? IMO neither one is. One is entertainment the other our future. We need both. So in my reality Tony is as important as the president and needs the same respect.

Re: OMG-Tony mentoring young media students

This is from one of Tony's interviews:

WHAT DID YOU TELL THE JOURNALISM STUDENTS AT ALABAMA THIS WEEK? “I gave them the list of the hit-list media and I’m sure they will be interviewing you guys soon. (SMILES). Not that you guys didn’t know that already.”

Guess my pointed head isn't too sharp today. Can someone 'splain this comment to me?

i think tony was hinting around that there are certain media out there that could take some lessons from these kids, or the kids are going to interview the media and see how NOT to be....
