Bae's been in prison for about 14 months. He got sentenced to 15 years in April of last year.

Rodman also said this in May

Rodman better be careful with one of his psycho rants when he's in NK or he will be end up being dog food like Kim's Uncle.

Ah thanks for the clarification. And based on that tweet sounds like Rodman may have already broached the subject. Who knows what private talks they've had.

Did Rodman think CNN was actually interested in asking him about a bunch of retired NBA scrubs playing basketball in N. Korea?

Outside Rodman himself, they're entirely irrelevant and his point stands.

They weren't.
They were doing a hatchet job on Rodman.
Which is pointless - no one's opinion of Rodman is going to be changed either way.

Rodman totally is not the guy to do what he is doing. Charles Smith was able to talk clearly and clearly communicate that they are not there for politics. Rodman on the otherhand appears to be avoiding questions that make him uncomfortable rather than simply saying "I do not plan to ask about the prisoner because I am a basketball player and that is not my role" or "I will discuss it if the situation calls for it" or any number of answers that actually address the question.

Exactly. They're interviewing a guy that wore a wedding dress to his own autobiography promotion. But they're not doing this so much for legitimate reasons so much as for RATINGS.

That interviewer is terrible. Rodnans got known mental issues and he just baits him into snapping when we all already know rodman is like that. They also cut him mid sentence to acommercial break and talk over the top of them. I also think it's a stretch to claim RRodman accused bae of anything he seemed to be more asking if they guy had the facts about why he is imprisoned (which likely is for no reason but rodman an isn't the best speaker). Shiuld have at least asked more questions and gotten info on their experience there and tried to inform them more.

I don't think they should be there right now but still that interviewer was an idiot

If you guys knew jack about North Korea you'd know Rodman, as crazy as it sounds, more or less is the perfect key for the lock.

North Koreans (at least the ones the country tries to showcase as 'ideal' and of high political status) all appear to be emotionally invested and sincere in what they believe, and they are drawn to charisma. Thus, Rodman. They do not respond well to quick witted, sharp tongued American politicians and journalists, heck they do not really believe in free speech and the open right to question or criticize their powers that be. Their dear leader is like a god to them. (Again, I'm talking about the high status North Koreans in power... not the poverty striken majority being controlled, imprisoned, etc)

Rodman, being emotionally driven, is a guy who will respect their passion and sincerity. Rodmans heart can be, and is, in this without ulterior motives. Rodman can truly become 'friends' with people over there. The North Korean political party can pick up on this. Can any other ****tard politician or journalist say that? If that reporter who badgered Rodman tried to put himself in Rodman's shoes and act as a voice of the American people he'd be executed by firing squad at dawn. North Koreans don't tolerate that kind of (as they call it) 'Imperialist Aggressor' attitude.

Now, that's not to say the North Korean's are good guys here. The ones in power treat the ones NOT in power in that country like sh*t. We all know this. However, we'll never get anywhere without force (bad idea) or diplomacy. Rodman appears to be the best key we've ever had to entering their doors, Rodman at this moment, represents our key to diplomacy.
