Eddie Mair: a rising BBC star – The Guardian


Interestingly, he writes and broadcasts a great deal, yet he seldom agrees to interviews – and chose not to break the policy for this article. All the BBC would say on the subject of the Johnson interview was: “We believe this was a fair interview which took in issues facing London and the wider political landscape as well as looking towards tonight’s TV portrait programme. As the documentary is biographical, exploring controversial episodes in the mayor’s life was considered appropriate. Eddie’s line of questioning attempted to elicit responses to direct questions that were not being answered.”
