Despite the temptation to have friends see me on TV, I have a personal unwritten rule that has served me well with respect to the media. Avoid them. They will seem to be deeply interested in you, their eyes fixed, video camera recording, all the while appearing to be astounded at your brilliant insights. It's a ploy. After they edit, you will either be made to look like a fool or you will do it on your own. Exhibit A is this video.
