Newsnight presenter under pressure again?
BBC presenter Emily Maitlis may have come under pressure from her employer again after tweeting a link to a February article by Sky News broadcaster Adam Boulton late last night.
Maitlis shared a link to Boulton’s article for the Times, titled “No 10 is trying to control the media, and everyone in our democracy should be afraid”, at 23.43hrs last night:
However, it has was deleted earlier today without explanation.
Ms Maitlis was attacked by the hard right in May after she dismantled Dominic Cummings’s excuses for his multiple breaches of the coronavirus lockdown and Boris Johnson’s defence of his adviser:
After a flood of right-wing complaints, the BBC upheld accusations of bias against her – and she was subsequently absent from her usual Newsnight chair and replaced by another presenter for one episode.
It seems that she may now have fallen foul of her craven employers again, for tweeting a 5-month-old article stating the obvious.
