Is it possible that the interviewer had a point (albeit not expressed): the time domain explanation you gave was good (and an accurate indication of the trend) for large deviations; but the picture becomes complex (perhaps too complex?) if the time-domain explanation is to succeed when the deviation is much less than the modulation frequency.
Of course, the duality of time and frequency is unalterable, so you should be able to use either approach; but it's horses for courses, as sometimes the choice of viewpoint can dramatically simplify the full explanation (but perhaps in some cases only for those rare souls for whom Bessel functions are straightforward).

John Dunn

It was these two fellows' complete outrage that I wasn't expecting. How **dare** I even suggest an explanation that didn't comply with their respective viewpoints!

Jonny Cash

Time and Frequency Domain!

John Dunn

Time was time and frequency was frequency and ne'er the twain did meet!
