This is extraordinary. And dare I say, most people couldn’t imagine this on British TV.
A couple of thoughts:
It’s a good example of how you cannot expect a presenter or reporter to be completely objective – however impartial they intend or are meant to be, you have to remember they are human, with their own views, their own experiences, their own foibles, which will inform the approach they take to every interview.
And, that with Youtube, and the internet, and iPlayer and a whole host of other digital tools at your disposal, you can find this out in advance and be prepared for it.
Both of which are lessons we give in our media training courses.
