On the November 9, 2015 edition of PBS’s Charlie Rose show, Baquet revealed the following:

Charlie Rose: “Suppose Edward Snowden had gotten on the phone to you?”
Baquet: “I would have met him anywhere. I would have given him a back massage. I would have done whatever he wanted.”
Rose: “Because?”
Baquet: “Because I think Edward Snowden’s revelations were really important to an international debate and I wish they had been in The New York Times first.”
