Interviewing is a skill that a good journalist will have learned and good journalists will always seek to hone their interviewing skills, asking the key questions in the best way possible. Likewise, good politicians learn how to be interviewed, how to get their message across during the interview and how to avoid pitfalls.

It's something in which every serious political party takes an interest and none more so than Sinn Fein.

As a party, they place a high value on training their politicians and that includes media training.
