Yes, THAT interview. How soon we forget.
Apparently, it wasn't scrapped because Tilsley didn't like how he was portrayed, nor because the interviewer apparently lacked knowledge about council processes, but because the editor of the channel thought that it
'did not reflect positive business news stories.'This marks a striking departure for newsgathering everywhere. I look forward to TV crews being withdrawn from Iraq to cover the birth of fluffy kittens in Surrey. At least we can look forward to an end to the bad news emanating from the Home Office for a while - perhaps they can fill the time with a recipe slot or more local weddings. Maybe they can find a talking dog to do something funny. That is possibly the worst excuse for poor journalism. If all they are doing is producing puff-pieces for industry, that's fine, just don't call it news - because it isn't.
If that IS the case, why did the Post report that Tilsley had asked BizTV not to broadcast the interview?
