To quote MB on the open thread, "H/T to Guest Who on the "other channel"... Hugh's got his handbag out and has just walloped Andrew Marr":
A drawback of this @BBCRadio4 disco about political interviews, presented by @AndrewMarr9 (including his glorious grumble that Boris Johnson was 'chuntering'), is no one's so far dared say Marr's questions were also chunter & nowhere near as forensic as @afneil's would have been.— Hugh Sykes (@HughSykes) January 11, 2020
In fairness, though, that 'disco' - Archive on 4: Questioning the Political Interview - did include a moment that made be chuckle (around 35 minutes in) when George Osborne referred to "the very best interviewers" and named John Humphrys and Andrew Neil, and then, with a laugh, added - very obviously as a sudden afterthought - "and yourself, Andrew".
Thanks for posting that. So that's what the (surprising) handbagging was about. If it's the interview I'm thinking of, Marr was more like a heckler than an interviewer or a chunterer.ReplyDelete
