[UPDATED] Founder of controversial Snapchat won’t allow ‘controversial’ questions

The disclosure below appears at the end of Palisades Post’s interview with Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel. (I added the photo of Spiegel and deleted an unnecessary word in the disclosure. I’ve also asked reporter Reza Gostar about the interview rules.)

Update — Reporter Gostar writes in an email: “The guidelines came from several discussions between me and Evan’s PR representative. They wanted reassurances that the subject matter of the interview would strictly focus on his life in Pacific Palisades. The refusal to be audio taped came just before the actual in-person interview when we met at Cafe Vida in the Palisades.”
