I find him a bit "tabloidy" dramatic at times in his utterances. There's certainly a gap in the TV presenter market for a skilled political interviewer. Paxman fell for his own hype and it became all about him. I can't stand Morgan but he does have the raw tools there,; his problem is he plays to the gallery, talks over political interviewees and the talk afterwards is invariably always about Morgan, rather than the interviewee. There is a skilled balancing act required, you're in danger of not getting anyone to go agree to an interview if you show them up. You don't want a soft interviewer either. I want to see an interviewer, like a mild mannered unassuming highly skilled QC cross examining a lying witness, give bullshitters enough rope to hang themselves by their own words, rather than brow beat them.
