Here's some of this morning blurb on the Today website:
The pre-election campaign moves onto families today. The government is to launch its green paper on families as the Conservatives publish the families section of their draft manifesto. Ed Balls, Secretary for Children, Schools and Families,
and his shadow David Willetts, discuss their party's policies.
This is not a true description. Ed Balls didn't discuss his party's policies at all. Both he and David Willetts discussed Conservative policies!
As for John Humphrys, well, he certainly tried to get Ed Balls to talk about his own party's policies (unsuccessfully). However, the interruption coefficients for each guest are an accurate reflection of his partiality during the affair: 2.3 against David Willetts, 1.3 against Ed Balls. He let one of Balls's answers go on for an age and allowed some of that overgrown kid's anti-Tory attacks to go on well beyond the point where most other interviewers would have felt the need to step in.
John Humphrys, incidentally, also got to see some Van Goghs (lucky man). Here's one of my favourites, 'Red Vineyards.'
