Over his 127 utterances as logged by Nexis, Avenatti managed 1,560 words, for an average of 12 words per utterance. Considering that television news moves at the pace of about 180 words per minute, that means that Avenatti averaged about four seconds per response…
As for Carlson? He spoke nearly as much as Avenatti — a little more than 1,500 words, including his preamble. Over his 128 utterances, he averaged 11.8 words.
So this was, essentially, an insulting, degrading string of four-second outbursts. Or a lot like an NFL game, only without the level playing field.
If Avenatti really wants more respectful air time on Carlson’s show, perhaps he should voice some classic white grievances.
