Once again Alistair is shown to be a true professional.

I find it hard to believe that people are criticising the mother who was being interviewed. Would the mother walking across the studio attempting to get her daughter to sit down (blocking all the camera shots in the process) really have improved the situation?

Not only are you not the intended audience, but the bulletin was also more informative than your average US news programme.


I'm not sure I understand the relevance of the part in bold, since no one in this thread even mentioned U.S. news programming (or the overall quality of the ITV broadcast).

The question is whether inviting small children on a news program is a good idea in the first place. Granted, the segment wouldn't have gone viral otherwise, but from a journalistic standpoint, did putting the toddlers on the air really add anything to the story?

He has improved so much over the last year or so - a real asset to ITV News now though they could do with making more use of him in the field. Careful what you wish for though as suspect he'd be chief Nuclear War correspondent.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
