It *was* full of difficult questions. But BBC is being gamed & can’t even see it. Zero understanding of how it’s being used. This interview has already been clipped & edited. It is already out there on social media. Farage as he wants to be seen: bold, angry, attacking ‘elites’

Farage achieved every single one of his objectives & it’s naive to think otherwise. And this is no criticism of Andrew Marr. It’s that we are in a brave new world. And traditional broadcasting is a propagandist’s wet dream

This is a really hard problem for a public service broadcaster to tackle. Esp in an election period. But it’s why BBC’s refusal to take criticism has made it so much worse. It desperately needs an urgent disinformation strategy. But shows no clue of even knowing what it is
