Harry is thrust into the public eye again, and has mixed feelings about his prominence. He hates that people believe he cheated to get into the competition, and yet he admits that he was excited at the prospect of entering and winning. He misses Ron, worries about the tasks, and longs to return to relative anonymity. For these reasons, he is displeased when Rita Skeeter coaxes him into a broom closet for a personal interview. Harry hates the extra attention, knowing that most of the school will assume that he has asked for it. Rita Skeeter represents the sort of renown that Harry detests—pursuit of fame through untruth. She also represents an awful sort of presumption, knowing exactly what she wants to write about Harry before listening to Harry's responses.
