. If a C4 News presenter had made similar remarks, nothing would have happened, and Piers Morgan's antics on GMB speak for themselves.

Isn't that exactly the point, the editorial department do not want the News presenters to go down the Fox style route of adding opinion to the News especially a mainstream bulletin. (Snow and Piers have very little credibility outside their small partisan audiences/twitter bubble)

I cannot believe people here who watch so much news on here cannot see the slippery slope you're encouraging.

I'm not encouraging anything. She recounted her own experience of racism, which is fine, that's fact , not opinion . The mistake she made was to follow it up with an off hand opinion.

Those were just off the top of my head.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

It's reaching the point where Naga becoming the story will make it untenable for her to remain with BBC News / Breakfast.


I really don't think that's the case. Various journalists have approached Naga for comment and she's not responded. It will blow over - unless she wants to speak out.

In other news, today was the first day for new editor Richard Frediani. He's tweeted that he's excited to get to work - mentioning Dan, Louise, Naga and Charlie. Hopefully he'll get working on a new set...
