WALTERS SPEAKS WITH ALBERT: WILL U.S. GO WA-WA OVER MARV?

          Marv Albert will grant his first national interview
     since his sexual assault trial tonight on ABC's "20/20" with
     Barbara Walters.  In Boston, Howard Manly writes that most
     of Albert's answers during tonight's interview "could be
     considered unresponsive, because they really don't matter
     now."  Manly: "He didn't have the courage to tell his side
     of the story in court when it counted" (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/7). 
     In Hartford, Dom Amore writes that Albert is "either getting
     bad advice, or ignoring common sense" by granting the
     interviews (HARTFORD COURANT, 11/7).  In N.Y., Richard
     Sandomir writes Albert's "media tour raises questions.  Why
     is he freely answering questions to the news media, rather
     than on the witness stand? ... A week in the heavy news
     media spin cycle may raise as many questions as he says he's
     answering" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/7).  In San Jose, Colin Seymour
     writes that Albert's "image can't get much worse, so why
     should he regret submitting to Barbara Walters'
     interrogation?" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/7).
