Framing: Sky News's Kay Burley loses it while interviewing RMT union leader Mick Lynch

Kay Burley made herself look quite unhinged by the end of this line of questioning. Mick Lynch didn’t budge from being polite.

[Twitter video]


Burley reduces herself to blatant spluttering goading, masked by her repeated overpolite use of "Mr Lynch", when responding to Lynch's reasonable answers to her repeated questions about what his members would do if people tried to cross their picket line - "That's a picket line there - that's what they'll do." She eventually resorts to invoking the miners' strike as a possible model. Lynch is having none of it.

She tried to spin the exchange in a tweet after the event:







Kay Burley - not at all unhinged or flustered


Maybe Lynch was lucky it was a remote interview, and not in person. As one Twitter user observed in the replies, Burley has some experience of public affray when a lot less was at stake:

'Black eye' Kay Burley may face legal action after grabbing photographer by the throat



After the battle of Uxbridge court, Sky anchor goes to Ascot as ‘victim’ visits hospital

Sky News presenter Kay Burley could face legal action after she allegedly grabbed a photographer by the neck.

Friends of Kirsty Wigglesworth say she is taking advice from lawyers amid claims that her throat was injured in what her bosses described as ‘an unprovoked and inexcusable attack’.
...
During the scrum, a camera accidentally hit Miss Burley on her right cheek.

She then grabbed Miss Wigglesworth around the throat in the middle of the astonished Press pack.

2. Isn't it?

Whatever you think of the strike, Lynch has been excellent in every interview of his I've seen so far.

3. That's called how not to interview a worker representative.

She looks professional, has a mic and cameraman and all, but has no idea what she's doing.
