It was fascinating watching Operation Midland victim Paul Gambaccini [my teenage favourite] reacting live to the breaking news of Dame Cressida Dick's eviction on Mark Steyn's GB News programme on Thursday night.
As you'd hope, he was given time and space to have his say, and not interrupted.
Contrast that to Newsnight's inept, awkward interview with Harvey Proctor, another Operation Midland victim.
He was constantly interrupted by rookie presenter Emma Vardy, as the BBC programme repeatedly panicked at what he had to say in criticism of Dame Cressida and her high-up Met colleagues - despite him insisting it was perfectly OK legally to say what he was saying.
Why invite a victim on if you're going to repeatedly get the Heebie-jeebies when he says something you've obviously not prepared for?
