It is interesting to notice that Washington correspondent Kylie Morris is essentially a third presenter on the programme whenever there is a major US story, i.e. she interviewed her colleague, international editor Lindsey Hillsum, in New York on tonight's programme.

I have nothing to post other than the fact that Channel 4 News over the past few weeks has been exemplary, both from a content aspect and from a production aspect. The other week they had 4 anchors live in 4 locations and lots of VT and stuff from London and all talking to each other. Now, you can make the arguments about pointless lives and whatnot, but from a pure technical level they've been knocking it out of the park lately.

I agree. It seems to be a unique type of anchoring on UK television news.

Last night's programme was excellent. Just a shame there was a delay on the final interview between Jon Snow and Irvine Welsh, which started getting in the way of the points Welsh was making, and a very messy end of the prog, but overall very good.
The programme is streets ahead of Newsnight (IME)
