Paxman plays the race card

Jeremy Paxman is, in his own words, suffering from the fact that

“White middle-class men are the most discriminated against group in television”

according to the Daily Mail’s Paul Revoir.

Poor thing.

Daily Mail readers will now be watching more Newsnight  now they have one  of their own at the helm

It was left to the delightful Mariella Frostrup to set the records straight and put the boot in, at the Independent

“[Mr Paxman] lists five women because he couldn’t possibly name all the men in positions of power in TV because he would be there all bloody day,” she said.

Maybe Jeremy is just not pretty enough.
