He thinks such a course may be good for business. I am quite certain he is right but it is not easy to like people who are basically unlikeable. And moreover untalented.

"I can't believe that you wasted your time with So & So. He is such and ass and I knew his dad who was even more of an ass."
Or : Why are you wasting your time with interviews from X convention. None of the people there are in touch with magic today. If that is what people want to hear, I feel even worse about our "magic community"
Or: Why haven't you interviewed Mr Y? He's the greatest thinker in magic! I go to your site and I see stuff with Mr Z who is one of the creepiest magicians that I know of and he stole all of his material from Mr B anyway! Just ask the people that actually know him.
.... and on and on it goes.
