Nick Robinson Sneers at GB Information Viewership

Nick Robinson used a Right now Programme interview this morning to sneer at GB Information’ viewing figures, completely unprovoked. Throughout a chat with Massive Jet TV –who shot to fame yesterday livestreaming planes arrived at Heathrow mid-Eunice – he in contrast the channel’s one-day peak with GB Information’ figures:

“Robinson: And you bought 200,000 viewers at one level?

Jerry Dyer: 238,000 dwell viewers at one level

Robinson: They dream of that at GB Information, I’ll inform you that”

Maybe most awkwardly this sneering jibe bought no response from the interviewee. It’s not simply Guido who thinks this inappropriate; the Mirror’s Rachel Wearmouth described it as “Actually unattractive perspective. Smug, even.”

It’s one factor for Robinson et al to leech off the licence charge taxpayers for his or her jobs, it’s one other to sneer at impartial rivals placing in exhausting work and taking dangers to plug a spot within the broadcasting market – work that’s paying off as their newest Sky News-beating viewership proves. Time will inform whether or not Robinson displays on the tone of this high-handed snobbery…
