From a front-page Wall Street Journal article on succession in Sumner Redstone's media empire: "During two telephone interviews—the second of which abruptly ended when a housekeeper rushed him reluctantly off the phone at the instigation of a spokesman in New York—Mr. Redstone said he can't predict how Ms. Redstone will ultimately react if Mr. Dauman and Mr. Moonves assume those roles."
Who was reluctant? Mr. Redstone? Or the housekeeper? And how does the reporter know if either one of them was genuinely reluctant, or if the reluctance was just professed so as to make the reporter feel better about the abrupt end to the interview?
