A striking example of how unfairly Jeremy Corbyn is treated by the media

... and what is the main issue for which the elites are really pissed-off ...

The following interview with both the two main opponents of tomorrow's British elections, Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn, is quite interesting because it was held by one of the most tough-to-the-politicians interviewer.

As we read from Wikipedia, Jeremy Paxman “is known for his forthright and abrasive interviewing style, particularly when interrogating politicians. These appearances were sometimes criticised as aggressive, intimidating and condescending, yet also applauded as tough and incisive.”, and “In 2017, Paxman's interviews of Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May for the upcoming general election were labelled 'embarrassing'.

Well, in the specific interview, it appears that Mr. Paxman was quite a bit tougher with Jeremy Corbyn than with Theresa May.

A quick review of some features shows that Corbyn was interrupted about 27 times and 'interrogated' by Paxman on eleven issues, while Theresa May was interrupted about 22 times and 'interrogated' only on five issues, during the corresponding interviews of the same time-length:

Jeremy Corbyn
Theresa May
~ 16 min. 39 sec.
~ 16 min. 31 sec.
~ 27 times
~ 22 times (of which 15 was for Brexit)
Number of issues asked

  • The first impressive feature is that Jeremy Jeremy Corbyn was 'interrogated' on more than double issues against someone who was member of the government since 2010 and also served as PM. We should expect the contrary, or, at least an equal treatment.

  • The second impressive feature is that, of about 22 interruptions against Theresa May, 15 were concerning the issue of Brexit! Here, Paxman is the perfect personification of an establishment that is really pissed-off with Brexit.

And this is another striking example of how unfairly Jeremy Corbyn is treated by the media.

* Number of interruptions could be higher but for practical reasons we excluded non-significant interruptions, i.e. interruptions that do not prevent the speaker to finish a sentense.
