Stupid, narrow-minded question attracting a snub

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 5:19 pm

When I heard  Michael Dell’s question to Putin and Putin snub reply on TV, it reminds me of what happens in conference during Q&A when you have one person who ask a question the “wrong way” and the presenter hit backs ungraciously. Silly for both person to do it in the public.

Perhaps, in this case, we should had expected such a reply from Putin, given we know how pricky he is and the shear silliness of the question that Michael Dell asked.

What was Michael Dell thinking? That type of question, if it was in private at a side meeting it would be fine, not on stage and in front of the main stream media. Why? That type of question is designed to probe Putin to find out how Dell can advance its own interest in Russia and you don’t ask these type of petty question when the particular session is about bigger global economy.

Michael Dell deserve the snub. Putin was not gracious enough to let it slip. What a shame!
