TV Interviews

Just watched Boris on Andrew Marr and switched it off after a few minutes.

Marrs constant interrupting and finger pointing is not what an interview is all about. All these interviews and tv debates should be scrapped because it's all about the presenters trying to get cheap shots by behaving like a hack.

I hope the BBC, Sky, Channel 4 are taken apart by the regulators for these stupid stunts.

I haven't watched the Marr interview yet, but have seen many.

What is not acceptable is for MP's to be given free rein without on the spot questioning about the validity of their claim.

I watched towards the end of the interview and it was a very chaotic interview as neither of them would give in and allow the other to speak!

Re: TV Interviews

I did watch the 'interview' or should I say 2 people speaking over each other.

These interviews are pointless, the politicians have a set script from which they will not deviate and the interviewers are looking for sound bites to dominate the media and to add to their reputation.

Marr is a dreadfully inept interviewer who should have been pensioned off years ago .

Re: TV Interviews

Marr might not be terribly good but Johnson is a boorish, rude, buffoon with an overdeveloped sense of his own worth and entitlement. His behaviour with Marr was a disgrace. But, isn't he always like that?

I watched Sophie Ridge interviewing Corbyn and Raab. What a contrast... well done Sophie

I watched that. Peterson gave her a good lesson she won't forget in a hurry

The one with piers morgan and ben Shapiro about gun laws is a classic too
