Krishnan Guru-Murphy recently had the daunting challenge of interviewing for Channel 4 News Ann Coulter, a Trump-supporting American conservative social and political commentator, writer, syndicated columnist, and lawyer. In the unlikely event that these sources of work and income dry up, she could make a fortune advertising hair products for L’Oreal. She’s worth it.
At one point in the interview, Guru-Murthy asked Coulter – with his trademark sneer – if she was a lawyer. Slightly bemused, she replied, ‘Yes’. TV gold, thanks to poor preparation on Guru-Murthy’s part.
The stimulating video (9:55) of the interview – here – sadly lacks the second or two at the end, when Guru-Murphy flung his file onto the desk in exasperation. He’d been so outgunned, I almost felt sorry for the poor man. Almost. I think Coulter’s cheery wave at the end was the final nail in his coffin.
In 20 minutes’ time Channel 4 will be broadcasting a documentary about homeless women in the UK. Well, they constitute about 10% of the total, so it’s only right to focus on them, not the 90%.
