I do wonder, though, how some news outlets might end up framing this.
UPDATE- THIS IS ODD
LINK DISABLED. The original link has been disabled over a copyright issue. Fair enough. However Good Morning Britain has not put the interview up on its own You Tube channel. There looks to be a video of that interview here on their own website, but I can't get it to play for me for some reason. The only video I can find from GMB on YT is one which includes only a fraction of that original video here. That clip "Frames" Trump and provides a lens through which one is supposed to view him, rather than just hearing him talk for himself. This happens a lot with people and issues the media doesn’t like – think of the example of Family First here in NZ. The weird thing is though: GMB has put up the full video of Sadiq Khan's response to Trump's original interview on YT and GMB.
I find that a little odd. It seems GMB have that interview on their own site (it just won't play for me, so I can't tell) but why not put the original interview up on You Tube along with so many other GMB videos they have on him? Especially when there is such a lot of world-wide interest in Trump and a potentially huge audience waiting. Especially when they have a section of their YT channel dedicated to Donald Trump UK Exclusive Interviews. Why not put Trump's interview in there? Again, they put up Khan's response to Trump on YT.
Is it just a coincidence that Trump seemed to come off as so reasonable and fair that even the left-of-centre Piers Morgan ended up defending Trump and yet this segment has disappeared? We are left with heavily edited clips of Trump while the full interview with a happy, charming, inclusive Sadiq Khan - who is so warmly received by the hosts - is left up. We can't even see for ourselves what Khan is responding to. A person has to know about the first Trump interview and go looking for it on the GMB website (and then actually have it play for them) to hear Trump speak for himself.
Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive but at the moment these just don't seem like the actions of an entirely impartial, or even competent, news outlet. Just seems a bit odd to me. I'm sure it's probably just an oversight that will be fixed shortly though. Let’s check back in a few days - I'd love to see the whole interview!
UPDATE X 2
Here we are on the 28th of May and the video has still not been uploaded.
Probably safe to say now that it never will be.
Gotta wonder why not eh?
