I’ve been quick to promote my own media training services following the appearance of Chloe Smith on Newsnight.
If you haven’t seen the interview – and you’re prepared to cringe for several minutes as Smith gets owned by Paxman then here it is for your viewing pleasure.
However, I’d rather show you the only known example of Jeremy Paxman getting his own ass handed back to him to him after trying to outwit a Welsh economist with the same sneering interview technique. This time, he picked a battle with the wrong man.
