The Weakest Defence

Kevin Maguire says the BBC cannot possibly be left-wing because Brillo once worked as a Tory researcher and Nick Robinson was a wet YC. He then manages to find a few other high profile Beeb characters like Craig Oliver, Thea Rogers, Will Walden and Chris Patten as proof there is nothing wrong. Less than half a dozen people in a organisation that has 8,000 journalists and 26,000 employees.

But panic not, Kev’s piece-de-resistance is still to come: “Bristol Con MP Charlotte Leslie was a researcher on The Weakest Link”. No further questions.
