He's got to be one of the worst reporters at the BBC, he's awful.

The rumour is he uses ISDN to feed into the Radio Today Show.

He's really a Journalist who sits down and take notes and writes newspaper columns. He does need some skills to be able to speak on the BBC News. He's not a BBC news presenter as such who has his own show which needs different skills. I don't seem any problem with him. Hey Mark, I don't know what you expect him to be like? Please explain more?

Do you really think he is a good reporter Mark O? Honestly he's dreadful, he over dramtises every sentance, totally unecessary.
He needs to take lessons from somebody like John Simpson or even Andrew Marr.

Good comparison John Very Happy.

Wish I'd thought of that one!
