I thought I'd carry out a little experiment and listen to Woman's Hour's midterm election coverage this morning to see how balanced it was. The hypothesis I was testing was that it wouldn't be balanced.
The results include the imbalance of guests. It wasn't, as you might have expected, one pro-Republican versus one pro-Democrat but one pro-Republican versus two pro-Democrats.
And, secondly, guess which of the three was the only one to be on the receiving end of an interruption? Yes, the lone pro-Republican guest, who Dame Jenni Murray interrupted to repeat her aghast-sounding question about racism in the Republican campaign.
So the conclusions of my experiment are that Woman's Hour had an anti-Republican bias.
I'm now off into a nearby wood to monitor some bears. I'm researching claims that they go to the toilet in such tree-filled locations.
