Daily Politics

The presenter’s (Joe Coburn) aggression in questioning John Redwood on his pro Brexit stance and his reasoned arguments on why opposers should stop wingeing, was barely contained. His arguments that a no deal situation would not be the disaster she argued, was, in each example, he quoted, aggressively interrupted. Very rarely does the BBC or, indeed any of the other visual media give an even-handed approach. Typically any pro- Brexit contributors who give a positive view on the country’s future are out-numbered by 2:1 or more by contributors giving counter and nearly always intimidatory views. These latter are almost always reinforced by the presenter(s) themselves. The sole exception to this appears, in my view, to be Andrew Neale who is notable for his even-handed questioning. Why don’t Ofcom investigate this issue seriously?
