Legal Reasons for Piers v Paxman

Piers Morgan versus Jeremy Paxman…

“I currently harbour a visceral loathing for him for the way he tried to deliberately and disingenuously chuck me under the bus during the Leveson Inquiry into phone-hacking.
I can’t explain why at the moment, for legal reasons, but there will be a time when I can, and I will. Suffice it to say that I’ve publicly stuck it to him on Twitter and other media outlets every chance I’ve had since, and he’s clearly getting rattled. Here he was, the supposed great interrogatory Rottweiler of our time, crouched in front of me like some fawning, trembling knave begging the King for clemency.
‘Well,’ I replied, ‘you have a very strange way of showing it.’
Paxman erupted with comically indignant rage, his benign, smiling face suddenly crunching into the ferocious scowl of a scorned lover refused permission for a second chance.
‘OH DO F*** OFF!!!!!!’ he howled.
I watched him throwing his little tantrum for a second or two and then responded in kind: ‘No, YOU f*** off.'”

1992 Newsnight Deja Vu: Tories Behind in the Polls, Labour Bookies Favourites

Paxman and Bad Al Campbell feature in this heavily as do rudimentary graphics showing Labour winning. Kelner pontificating, Heffer pessimistic, pundits pessimistically shaking their heads at the Tory campaign. Where did it all go wrong is the theme of Paxman on Newsnight.


Hat-tip: Ed Stradling for digging out the video.


Panto Paxo

Jeremy Paxman confirms his whole act is based on a pantomime dame…

“Most people in this country just want to get on with their lives and have little or no interest in politics: politicians are about as welcome as the first nits of the school term. The aim of an interview is not drama, but to leave the viewer to make a judgment: to do this, the interviewer may sometimes have to play Widow Twankey…”
