In December 2016 BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg was named journalist of the year at the Press Gazette’s British Journalism Awards. I can hardly believe that a reporter with such a negative, cynical and at times nasty reporting style could have received such an accolade. Her utter contempt for politicians is apparent for all to witness in her reports. Her style sets an unhealthy tone creating a toxic environment in which no politician is given any respect or credit for attempting to lead the country through these difficult & challenging times. I for one can hardly bear to listen to her.
