rights. That is all from me. We will be back

:00:00.:00:00.

at 10pm with a round-up of the news. First it is time for Newswatch.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to Newswatch. Coming up: A clash with Andrea

:00:14.:00:24.

Leadsom on Newsnight. Are the BBC presenter is guilty of being too

:00:25.:00:29.

negative and interrupting ridley? Is this government minister being given

:00:30.:00:40.

too harder time on BBC News? As the aftermath of the West London fire

:00:41.:00:44.

continues to dominate the news, it has been a difficult week for the

:00:45.:00:51.

housing minister. He was on Victoria Derbyshire when he was faced with

:00:52.:00:56.

residents from the Grenfell Tower. I want permanent accommodation. Do not

:00:57.:01:10.

give me temporary accommodation. I work hard and I had a good house. Do

:01:11.:01:16.

not give me temporary accommodation, I will not excepted. What we will

:01:17.:01:32.

come to, I promised... Some viewers felt that Victoria

:01:33.:01:36.

Derbyshire lost control. One fewer send this e-mail:

:01:37.:02:02.

we mentioned last week another BBC item about the fire at Grenfell

:02:03.:02:09.

Tower that some viewers complained about. An interview with the Prime

:02:10.:02:17.

Minister. The Newsnight presenter has done a number of interviews, and

:02:18.:02:23.

she recently interviewed Andrea Leadsom. It was a year since Britain

:02:24.:02:29.

voted to leave the European Union and the preparations for Brexit were

:02:30.:02:33.

under discussion. You have a negotiating position that is

:02:34.:02:37.

unclear, you are hearing that from the president of the EU Parliament,

:02:38.:02:42.

we have to call system that is unstable, the economy is unfair,

:02:43.:02:46.

living standards are following. What is going well? European politicians

:02:47.:02:53.

are very keen that we keep a strong relationship going forward and that

:02:54.:02:58.

is what we are going to do. It is the elected politicians who are

:02:59.:03:02.

important here. You do not even have a deal with the DUP on the table.

:03:03.:03:08.

They are laughing at us. That is not true. Angela Merkel said it was a

:03:09.:03:20.

good start. Various different EU politicians, the elected ones,

:03:21.:03:24.

saying it is a good start. It has been a year. If broadcasters were

:03:25.:03:33.

willing to be a bit patriotic, the country took a decision and this

:03:34.:03:41.

government... Are you accusing me of being unpatriotic for questioning

:03:42.:03:44.

how negotiations are going and whether you have a position of

:03:45.:03:51.

strength? Andrea Leadsom denied calling her on patriotic that some

:03:52.:03:56.

viewers that the general point being made by the former Conservative

:03:57.:03:57.

leadership candidate was there. Another viewer recorded this video

:03:58.:04:48.

for us with his thoughts. Please, BBC, can you rain in your presenter.

:04:49.:04:54.

She needs to learn how to hold a civil conversation. Most of her

:04:55.:05:04.

subjects are subjected to higher insulting interjections. I do not

:05:05.:05:08.

like politicians but I have to commend them for holding the

:05:09.:05:12.

temperature during one of her interviews. She interrupts so much

:05:13.:05:17.

that no one ever gets there and to write. That does not allow the

:05:18.:05:22.

viewers to make a judgment of what they are trying to say. The

:05:23.:05:27.

interview is therefore pointless. The editor of Newsnight is here with

:05:28.:05:33.

us. The reference that Andrea Leadsom made two patches -- made to

:05:34.:05:43.

patch it is is that some people say they coverage has been negative. I

:05:44.:05:48.

thought it was an excellent interview. I'm sure some viewers

:05:49.:05:51.

would agree with these complaints that the majority of people who saw

:05:52.:05:56.

it will think that calling an interviewer unpatriotic when the 's

:05:57.:06:02.

awkward questions is somewhere between hilarious and sinister. It

:06:03.:06:06.

happens in Moscow and Beijing but not really in a place with a free

:06:07.:06:13.

media. Andrea Leadsom went on to say that she was not calling her

:06:14.:06:18.

unpatriotic. You only have to watch it. The viewers that you have

:06:19.:06:24.

reported the complaints off would make the point that it was fair to

:06:25.:06:30.

call Emily unpatriotic. Newsnight is good at turning around these

:06:31.:06:35.

interviews as a social media clip to go viral, watching it back on the

:06:36.:06:39.

whole, do you not see why many viewers felt it was heavy-handed? If

:06:40.:06:45.

you are making a point about partial extracts from an interview and how

:06:46.:06:52.

some of those can gain circulation outside the context of an interview,

:06:53.:06:58.

that is an interesting one and one we need to think about because

:06:59.:07:02.

sometimes you will have a minute long fragment from an interview they

:07:03.:07:06.

get seen by many people outside the context of the interview. This was a

:07:07.:07:15.

classic accountability interview. It is on a momentous issue. It is about

:07:16.:07:20.

the future shape and relationship of the country on the continent and it

:07:21.:07:26.

is right that she conducted a tough accountability interview. We

:07:27.:07:32.

understand that people need to be brought back to and so the question,

:07:33.:07:38.

but there was a lot of interrupting there. One viewer said it was

:07:39.:07:42.

frustrating not being able to hear Andrea Leadsom finish her and

:07:43.:07:47.

service. Interrupting is a berry fine line. I have sympathy with the

:07:48.:07:53.

viewers that feel that sometimes we enter up to much. We're all subjects

:07:54.:08:00.

if fairness of allowing them to set out their case. There are lots of

:08:01.:08:10.

interviewees who come into an interview with the aim of

:08:11.:08:13.

filibustering their way through it and sticking to two or three

:08:14.:08:18.

homilies. In this case it was supposed to be a 15 minute interview

:08:19.:08:25.

to do with when she was able to start it, but ended up only being

:08:26.:08:32.

7-8 minutes. The interviewer is under pressure to keep the interview

:08:33.:08:38.

moving along and to address all the questions they are trying to address

:08:39.:08:43.

in the interview. There were complaints about another interviewee

:08:44.:08:46.

Emily did with the Prime Minister. Here is a clip. We are yet to find

:08:47.:08:53.

out what the costs of the fire was. You could have stopped it spreading

:08:54.:08:58.

by spending ?2 more on the cladding. The Fire Service are looking at what

:08:59.:09:02.

the cause of the fire was and it is important we find out what happened.

:09:03.:09:08.

You were sent information about this and 2013. The coroner said that you

:09:09.:09:14.

could stop but the sprinkler system. She seemed to be pitting blame on

:09:15.:09:20.

Theresa May, in terms of using the word you, that was seen as unfair.

:09:21.:09:29.

The figure of speech was, you could do this, like one could do this...

:09:30.:09:35.

You could have spent... It is the same way as you say, you can get

:09:36.:09:42.

up... Some of that focused anger should be directed at the right

:09:43.:09:49.

people. The Prime Minister is the leader of the Conservative Party, it

:09:50.:09:55.

is a conservative borough, there are responsibilities that they have is

:09:56.:09:57.

the leader of the party that runs the council. In that particular

:09:58.:10:05.

case, don't think the Emily that she personally close the cladding...

:10:06.:10:13.

What you think she said is not what viewers think they got out of it.

:10:14.:10:18.

Some viewers construed it differently but I do not think they

:10:19.:10:24.

are the majority. Town is very important in many viewers said it

:10:25.:10:28.

came across as angry and emotional. Should they not remain calm and

:10:29.:10:38.

measured? It often is. One of the responsibilities is to channel the

:10:39.:10:44.

questions that the viewers would want Aston a particular situation.

:10:45.:10:51.

On Friday, Emily brilliantly channelled the questions and the

:10:52.:10:57.

mood around the handling of the aftermath of that disaster. There

:10:58.:11:08.

were two very good interviews there. There was plenty of coverage across

:11:09.:11:11.

the BBC last weekend of the Glastonbury Festival and it made it

:11:12.:11:16.

onto BBC News, courtesy of an appearance by Jeremy Corbyn. Read 14

:11:17.:11:21.

minutes of the speech given by the Labour and was covered live on the

:11:22.:11:24.

news channel, wanting one viewer to comment : thank you for all your
