John Sweeney interview with Geert Wilders. Rarely have I witnessed a “journalist” with such a preconceived opinion of the interviewee. The first question is not even a question but a both sly and cowardly put insult: “some people say that your are a bit of a racist”. Later Sweeney tries to make a point at the expense of the victims of the MH17 flight that was shot down over the Ukraine. Vital parts were edited out of the original first interview, because these would not fit the frame that Sweeney is trying to create. Check out the sneer at the end of the first interview “Well, some answers there .. of a kind”, which is exactly the kind of left wing activist journalism comment that Geert Wilders was mentioning in the interview.
