I think you do :-)

>From what I have heard, this is a difference between North American and
European (or at least German) journalism: In Germany, interview transcripts
are sent to the interviewed person for cross-checking, so that they can correct
misunderstandings. This is a good thing actually; journalists writing about
science usually get it wrong, and then one can work together to find correct,
but understandable formulations. On the other hand, even in political
journalism this has gone so far that interviews need to be "authorised" before
publication, which could censor the information, for which North American
culture is very sensitive.
