<p>On the November 9, 2015 edition of PBS&rsquo;s Charlie Rose show, Baquet revealed the following:</p>

<p>Charlie Rose: &ldquo;Suppose Edward Snowden had gotten on the phone to you?&rdquo;<br />
Baquet: &ldquo;I would have met him anywhere. I would have given him a back massage. I would have done whatever he wanted.&rdquo;<br />
Rose: &ldquo;Because?&rdquo;<br />
Baquet: &ldquo;Because I think Edward Snowden&rsquo;s revelations were really important to an international debate and I wish they had been in The New York Times first.&rdquo;</p>
