    She comes across as mature and focused. Go Katy!

    "Sean from the USA" -- nice questions! They brought out a different side of her.

    This interview just shows how the major media can skew their features for the sake of so-called entertainment values. ABC's coverage of Katy has gone out of its way to portray her as a Texas cheerleader fluff-head.

    Now we see a thoughtful, well-grounded young lady. Excellent job, Paula, of bringing out the best in her.

    To be fair, though, this is ABC's style of coverage...fluff, fluff and more fluff. Any sport they cover that isn't the NBA is stock full of it. It's not unique to their Figure Skating coverage.

    Another trick of theirs is to cut out the question and just play the answer. Makes it look like Katy was just dying to tell us all about her pink hummer.

    i know. ESPN/ABC keeps showing her as a dumb blonde kid but in the interview she seems serious and focused and understans how important it is to have emotional connection with your music.

    what is that 'spose to mean?? I figured that others would ask questions pertaining to skating, and any questions I had there, would be asked by someone else. So thought about what I might ask her face to face that she wouldn't normally be asked by a fan. I didn't think most or any of mine would be used.

    I also asked about the pink hummer, the question they used was worded better than mine, but I was still curious about it also. Now I know she wants a H3.

    Katy Taylor's performances are superficial and who you are ALWAYS reflects in your skating. The television networks aren't "showing" her as anything - that's really who she is. It's her own desire to have a hot pink Hummer which, again, is indicative of her personality. Not that we should be surprised anyway...she is an over-priveleged girl who was brought up in conservative Texas. Hopefully she can mature and broaden herself as a person.

    In fact, she is so over-priveleged that she can't buy her hummer. She has to save up to pay for her skating and college.
