Aaron Rodgers may come across as one of those athletes who couldn’t care less what the media writes or says about him, but apparently that is very far from the truth.
In a fascinating interview with “The Dan Le Batard Show” on Thursday, Rodgers spoke a lot about the people he trusts in his life. When the conversation steered toward whether or not he trusts the media, the Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed that he records his own one-on-one interviews so his words can’t be taken out of context.
“I think you have to approach every interview with a clear mind and think about what you want to say and what message you want to get out,” Rodgers said. “I think it’s also important, if you’re worried about getting taken out of context, that you just record your interviews. That’s something I’ve been doing for a while now. It’s important to have that second recording so if someone’s trying to take something you said out of context you can go back and say, ‘No, wait wait…’”
Rodgers said he learned the idea from Natalie Portman, who revealed in an interview a while back that she uses the practice. SOURCE Larry Brown Sports
