Here's a darkly amusing vignette from this week's Have I Got News For You. The BBC studio audience had just loudly applauded yet another anti-Tory joke when a thought popped into guest presenter Victoria Coren's head:
Victoria Coren: Now I'm worried about the applause. Do we have a very biased BBC audience, do you think?
Ian Hislop: It would be an outrage if we don't.
Victoria Coren: I'm already worried that I've made too many jokes about Theresa May and not enough about Jeremy Corbyn. Mind you, you say a bad thing about Jeremy Corbyn, you get enough shit on the internet if you're not Jewish, so...I think I'll leave it.
I think this was a moment of genuine concern for Victoria - before she was able to compose herself and quickly think of a one-liner in order to laugh off an awkward situation.ReplyDelete
Good for her for saying it, but I still have no sympathy for her if she gets flamed on Twitter for it. She'll vote Labour anyway.ReplyDelete
Presumably she will be reprimanded by the BBC for telling the truth.
I liked Jo Brands comment on Have I got News for You this week (something like ) The BBC is biased to the party you didn't vote for.ReplyDelete
