WHEN TV journalists interview politicians they should stick to asking questions and allow them to answer. It has become commonplace for interviewers to constantly interrupt, be aggressive and try to disrupt the interviewee’s train of thought.
The worst example I have seen was the interview between Andrew Marr and Boris Johnson on the BBC.
The Prime Minister rarely got the chance to finish a sentence before Marr interjected and continued to talk over him. I think the PM must have been interrupted more than 50 times. Marr and other journalists seem to think they are the focus of attention when they should be the facilitator, not the star performer.
