My summary...

CNN was absolutely brilliant until Cuomo came on and really did go overboard with the religious aspect of the story, and regardless of his own well documented faith (Catholic), Global TV was not the place to overly express it. Brianna was just fantastic.

BBC - A case of bad luck. Geeta Guru-Murthy being on Domestic and literally bundling her way through a deep swamp of sh@t should have been noticed by execs and taken off air. Yes, she's years of experience at Breaking News, but if this is her standard - enough is enough. Things didn't improve as rightly put by other members of this forum until Kay/Price took over... To have GGM return was a big mistake. I can't imagine the quandary of dragging some off air... (even though CNN do it with Blitzer). Outside Source needs to take a back seat at times such as these, OR, stick Ross Atkins in a studio with someone else... Made no sense.

Cannot believe Geeta is back for the remainder of her shift Solo. DIRE


Maybe they could have drafted Krishnan in from the other side? Laughing

Seriously though, her coverage between 18:30-19:00 was absolutely appalling and didn't really improve much after 20:00. The shouting, getting excited, ignoring what guests were saying, then seemingly sneering/sniggering/laughing and excessively saying 'I'm going on holiday to Paris in a few days' plus dropping several clangers were characteristics of someone being drawn and consumed into the news and not delivering the news calmly and accurately to the viewer.

I suppose they could've asked Clive Myrie to stay on and do the 8pm hour (he was presenting the Six).

I've never been a particular fan of Geeta's delivery style, but tonight it was a poor show by all accounts.

Poor show??? I hate to kick someone when they are down (by a number of people on this forum), but she really was absolutely terrible. And yes, I agree, and as some people have said - shocked.

Sky have gone to the paper review (with Carole Malone, so best avoided) but the BBC are still in rolling news mode.


No. Geeta is doing The Papers now on the NC.

What do you mean 'no'? What I said was true when I posted it.


I may have confused myself there. I'm sorry about that. BBC NC was doing The Papers covering the story of the Notre Dame fire so I should have said yes. The Papers will be back with Geeta at 11:30pm.
