I think the trouble kind of stems from social media in a way - journalists who have been professional for years and nothing but impartial on screen are suddenly sharing their own opinions on certain individuals and policies which appear to sway one way, especially in the context of your own timeline which will likely swing one way too, suddenly brings their suitability into question. Andrew Neil for example tweeting a Nancy Pelosi comment on Boris Johnson today basically saying "What does she know?" suggests he is far from suitable to be involved in the BBC's election coverage, but I'm sure if I bothered to go looking there would be plenty of criticism of Trump too.


Somebody calling out Pelosi for saying that Boris Johnson decides what drugs the UK licenses is extremely suitable to be involved in any channels' US election coverage!

One of the factors of this year's US elections is the, in some ways quite pronounced, anti-British rhetoric coming from prominent Democrats. Arguably the current Government has become marginally aligned with Trump, but this isn't so entirely and in many ways, Trump's administration is actually harming UK interests.

We're mere nuggets in the tectonic plates of US and EU politics!

Fox news used AP as far 2019 and can can see no stories suggesting that's changed. They had a dispute in 2012 over price, but as usual in corporate US it was loud, public and then quietly settled. AP continued to list Fox as a client for new and existing services upto 2019

And they still use them - AP and Fox will be doing a joint exit poll as an alternative to the the other network news departments including CNN who will be doing their usual pooled exit poll.

I assume just as you have "Shy Tories" here when it comes to exit polls you also have Quiet Trumpers in the US.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

A quiet trump does usually save some embarrassment Very Happy

That is a thing in the US as it is in the UK, but for opinion polls, not usually for exit polls

It was very much a thing back in 2016, maybe not so much now, especially as most of the polls at the moment put Biden too far ahead for any undecided/Quiet Trumper swing to have any meaningful impact on the overall result, though it might make some states a bit closer than they currently seem.

Yeah I suspect in some parts of the US with what's going on it's a case of having quiet Democrat voters

Looks like the BBC is the not the only gig that he has for the short term. Andrew Neil is covering John Pienaar on Times Radio for 2 weeks.

Does Graham Norton have Norton Security installed on his computer?
