A Lesson(?) in Mediation Confidentiality

Once again, Carrie Prejean instructs the nation in etiquette, in this case telling us that it is "inappropriate" to ask questions about the parties' motivations in entering into a settlement.  As Larry King should well know, asking someone why they settled a lawsuit would destroy the principle of mediation confidentiality. 



Is it even necessary to get into the many ways in which Ms. Prejean's understanding of confidentiality is incorrect? The question I would rather ask is, why would you go on the Larry King show in the first place if you don't want to talk about it?

Thanks to Jim Melamed for posting this link.
