Channel 4 News is, if anything, more feminism-driven than BBC TV News. Cathy Newman (43) is the most bombastic feminist interviewer on the programme. So I was delighted to watch five minutes from her interview of Jordan Peterson on the programme this evening.
Newman interrupted Peterson repeatedly and outrageously, pressed him with feminist narratives (gender pay gap, the number of female CEOs in the FTSE100, yawn…), asked daft questions such as, “Is gender equality a myth?” (Peterson: “I don’t know what you mean by the question”), kept taking offence, and repeatedly put words in his mouth. He responded with remarkable patience, making Newman look like a silly schoolgirl in the process. The full interview is on the programme’s YouTube Channel – here (video, 29:55).
