But isn’t it right to criticise a journalist who is supposed to be impartial for showing favouritism to a member of the political party he prefers?

Here‘s the Mirror:

The BBC’s Andrew Marr paid a Tory minister a compliment and some people are very upset about it.

International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt was on the BBC’s flagship Sunday morning interview programme, discussing sexual misconduct allegations against Oxfam workers. The interview later turned to Brexit , with the minister insisting she was still “chipper” about the process.

But in the moments after Marr drew the interview to a close, the presenter appeared to give Mordaunt a “thumbs up” and tell her “that was very good”.

The Marr Show‘s editor, Rob Burley, has apparently been at pains to justify his presenter’s remark. At one point, according to the Huffington Post, he stated: “I hate to spoil what you see as the final, clinching evidence of a high level conspiracy, but he was just being nice like an actual human as he is to everyone he interviews, regardless of party.”

Okay – where’s the proof? How many Labour politicians have had such supportive words from Mr Marr at the end of an interview?

Or do they get the cold shoulder of “I won’t be seeing you again” that Stand Up for Labour supremo Crispin Flintoff had from Jo Coburn on the BBC’s Daily Politics last week?

Was it a display of partisanship? Or simple politeness? What do you think?
