Unequal treatment of Remain (Philip Hammond) and Leave (Penny Mordaunt). Interviews by Nick Robinson.
Hammond afforded 13 responses. 8 of 30-50 secs, 2 of 20-25 secs and 3 of 5-15 secs. What a contrast to the Leave case.
Mordaunt afforded 11 responses. None of 30-50 secs, 4 of 20-25 secs and 7 of 5-15 secs.
NR questioning was reasonable to both cases. The bias was in allowing much longer response times for the pro-EU case.
R4 Today were unduly partial during the euro debates. They are just as bad now, only more subtle.
