 It is quite common for a reporter to act like they are really
interested in one specific thing while on the side getting
a few comments about some side subject that they are really
interested in getting something on. They will often print this
side conversation as their main story and use your quotes completely
out of context. They are rarely actually interested in what they
tell you they want you to talk about. They actually want to
get you to be more candid on the side subject that they are
intending to write about.
 You are quite lucky that you didn't say something that could
have been more easily twisted.
