The Arquette Interview Aftermath

Howard started off the show noting how disappointed he was by the media's spin on yesterday's interview with David Arquette, as David had been--like few celebrities--open and honest about his separation from Courteney Cox.

Howard thought David never attacked Courteney, but rather the rumors surrounding their split: "I thought he was being non-confrontational and confronting the situation."

Howard played clip after clip of news outlets taking David's statements out of context: "The spin was that he was a cheating husband."

Howard wished the interview hadn't blown up in David's face, as he'd done the one thing the media asks: he didn't hide behind a publicist's statement or try a 'no comment' stonewall: "Rather than waiting to be ambushed, he went on a legitimate show and spoke his mind."
