If you do not have a date for the interview, or the name of the interviewer, simply leave them out. Likewise, if there is no "title" to the interview (i.e. “Texan Environmental Activist Diane Wilson: Why I Refuse to go Jail”) just put the word Interview after the name of the person being interviewed.


Citing Congressional Hearings:

Congressional Hearings are held to get the testimony of various experts on an issue of national importance. In the text of your paper, you should identify the name of the person giving testimony, and give some information about him or her, but the footnote and bibliography entry should be under the "author" of the hearings, which is the United States Congress.
