Barbara West of WFTV Channel 9 in Orlando had what was billed as a ‘One on One’ interview with Senator Joe Biden on Thursday that didn’t sit well with the Democratic VP nominee. Several times during the course of the question and answer session, Biden remarked, “I don’t know who is writing your questions.”

Biden was so hot about the four minute grilling that he promptly canceled a planned interview that station had arranged with Jill Biden. When the Orlando Sentinel questioned the Obama campaign, they cited what they felt was an unprofessional interview by Barbara West. They used words like ‘combative’ and ‘woefully uninformed’ to portray West.

West responded by saying: “I think I asked him some pointed questions….I don’t think I was rude or inconsiderate to him.”

Check out the video below. The questions were definitely tough and Biden appeared to handle himself well, though you could sense his exasperation.
