And if you thought Newsnight was bad…
This week’s World at One was another Labour-heavy zone.
The list of UK politicians interviewed across all five programmes runs as follows:
Labour – Sally Keeble (2.5 minutes)
Andy Burnham, (6 minutes)
David Miliband (8.5 minutes)
Michael Meacher (1 minute)
Ed Balls (4.5 minutes)
Conservative – Damian Green (3 minutes)
Liberal Democrat – No-one
(No mention of anyone declining to be interviewed either!)
There were also interviews with a co-founder of Labour’s sister party, the SDLP; the director general of the Equality and Human Rights Commission; a left-leaning Irish economist; a Democrat mayor; and a trades unionist. Other than Mr Green, no right-wingers were interviewed.
