Q:  How to get an interview with a head of state?

A:  Go to the palace and knock on the door.

Who says there’s no world news on World News?

Today, ABC’s Jeffrey Kofman, who covers Latin America for the network, walked right up to the presidential palace in Tegucigalpa, Honduras to get an interview with the new, but internationally unrecognized, president Roberto Micheletti. All Kofman had to do was go to the palace, show his ID and about five minutes later, he entered the inner sanctum and sat down for an interview with Micheletti, his first with an American network.

Micheletti told Kofman he’d like to be called “Mr. President.”

“You have to because I am the President,” he said, adding, “or you can call me Roberto if you want.”
