An interesting piece on the programme on the Guardian website today, by Miranda Sawyer:
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... g-its-grip
It is always hard to judge a piece about journalism by a journalist, as they tend to be even less objective than usual. However Sawyer does go (very gently) for the jugular, especially over the charges (upheld) of false equivalence and the toxic nature of John Humphrys.
She rather gently criticises Sarah Sands (editor and captain of this ship of fools) but never really makes plain what appears, by the end of the article, to be a fairly substantial criticism - fear of offending Brexiters (including Humphrys), promoting false confrontation, subservience to Trump, inability to understand balance, even after being issued with 'guidance' from above, and inclusion of trivial articles. And of failing to confront or control Humphrys.
An interesting read.
