Arlene Foster slams Emily Maitlis' 'laughable' comments on BBC having 'Tory agenda'

Arlene Foster and Paul Embery were invited onto Sunday’s GB News to discuss their thoughts on Emily Maitlis’ comments about the BBC’s impartiality. However, the guests seemed to share the same stance, with Arlene blasting the former Newsnight presenter, branding her claims about the broadcaster as “laughable”.

It comes after Emily criticised her former employer when she compared the BBC’s impartiality rules to “censorship” following her move to a daily podcast at rival broadcaster LBC.

Arlene began: “Well, I mean, it’s laughable, isn’t it to think that there’s some sort of Tory agenda going on the BBC.”

“It’s certainly no impacting on her output to put I politely,” she laughed.

“I mean, there probably is cronyism in the BBC, but it’s certainly not Tory cronyism.

“I think it’s quite concerning though that some very senior Labour people have praised Emily Maitlis for what she had to say about the BBC.

“I find as disconcerting because you have people like David Dimbleby questioning what she has to say.

“And I mean, David Dimbleby is not known to be a right-wing Tory and he’s basically saying if instead of delivering a monologue, she had asked those questions,  it could have been dealt with differently, but she stated those things as a fact.”
