Nothing about immigration, radicalised Muslims or UKIP on Friday 31st. I almost miss it. However, also nothing about the newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire. They were keen to report on it when they thought UKIP was in the running but nothing now the Labour candidate, Alan Billings, got nearly twice the number of votes than UKIP.
19.00 – 19.02 Intros
19.02 – 19.15 The resignation of Fiona Woolf from the inquiry into child sexual abuse.
19.15 – 19.17 Crash of the Virgin Galactic test aircraft.
19.17 – 19.21 Overthrow of government in Burkina Faso.
19.21 – 19.23 Two deaths reported in a fire at a fireworks factory.
19.23 – 19.26 Report on the suicide of Rosie Whitaker and bullying.
19.26 – 19.31 US elections
19.31 – 19.35 Feature about the awareness campaign by the Royal Society for Public Health about the number of calories in alcoholic drinks.
I am disappointed that Channel 4 News has not reinforced my prejudice today. At least they are pushing the child sexual abuse inquiry story rather than having John Snow asking “what is it about these Northern cities?”.
I guess my campaign is working. Who would have thought that a nobody in one of “these Northern cities” would have any effect, even without being interviewed by their North of England correspondent and who voted Labour for the SYPCC.
