I always prefer Dateline London when it has a broad range of political opinions. Alas, it doesn't happen too often.
Today's edition, however, did contain a decent spread of opinion - from centre-left to centre-right (via a pro-Saudi journalist and an American liberal)...
...and the centre-right guest (Conservative Home's Alex Deane) engaged in plenty of sparring with the two left-liberals (including Michael Goldfarb).
It's so much better when Dateline isn't just a left-leaning love-in. That's when it becomes worth watching.
This is true of all programmes - let's have a range of opinion. Let's test ideas in the crucible of debate.ReplyDelete
