She is dreadful - but compelling viewing.

I suggest Sky second her to Fox News to gain more experience - they do right wing bias there with much more credibility.

Thanks for the link. I was watching BBC at the time.

I saw the bit where the crowd were shouting "Sack Kay Burley" etc and I loved that

How atrocious was she

If she wants to do a Paxman style interview ahe needs to be a lot more intelligent and articulate. None of what she said even made sense.

Awful woman

Vile woman, who lacks the balance and grace of Paxman's venom.

I'd still give her one though

The right wing media have been in a desperate state for the last few days It's hilarious watching a so called news organisation behaving like that, how can anyone take Sky seriously after the way they've handled this election, they're a pathetic joke.

I'd still slip her a crippler though.

She's supposed to report the news not bully and heckle the people making it.

How she loves her own opinions - I don't think she drew breath there, just kept mouthing to stop him getting a word in.
Bad form.

She should be replaced by the far superior Paula Middlehurst.

She's an arsehole..a characature of biased reporting and sour grapes..and one who thinks that activism should be undertaken only by the controlled media.

I seem to remember her saying something along the lines of the whole of the Eastern Seaboard of the USA being under terrorist attack during her reporting of 9/11.

Her line to Babbs about the demonstrators being better off "Going home and watching on Sky News" was very revealing IMO. Obviously didn't like the idea of uppity democrats on the streets out of control of media spin. Remember that when you next see Sky News covering demonstrations from foreign climes, using the word 'freedom' a lot.

From Wikipedia:
Of the 11 September 2001 attacks she said: "If you're just joining us, the entire eastern seaboard of the United States has been decimated by a terrorist attack".

In an interview in February 2008 Burley asked the wife of Suffolk serial killer Steve Wright: "Do you think if you'd had a better sex life he wouldn't have done this?"

And I saw myself what she said to Peter Andre when she asked him about Reid adopting his children, then saying "I didn't mean to upset you" in a manner suggesting it was all his fault

That is brutal.

I enjoyed dancing on ice when she had her head smashed off the ground.

Why didn't he say that they wanted the percentage of the vote to equal seats , meaning Lib Dems would have their fair share of the commons?

To be fair the same protestors had spent the previous 10 minutes screaming sack Kay Burley and Sky News is shit into a megaphone from 10 yards behind her.

Thought the interview was funny tbh

Yes, but they had a point. And a good point at that. Kay Burley is just pointless.

So?

They're allowed to.

"Down with Murdocracy" is a FABULOUS thing that should be shouted in her face until the day she retires.

She has been a massive sell out , knows it , and was taking her frustration out on that guy.

That is bad journalism.

And she is allowed to cross question them

Do you feel sorry for the pooor little lamb? He should have stood up to her, he got taken apart by a middle aged woman

She should accept people screaming at her, but if she questions them harshly we must feel sorry for them and condemn her

Oh, I thought it had happened the other way round.

That explains why she was in a bad mood then, although it doesn't excuse her imo.

I was watching the well informed and reasonable Laura over on BBC, as the protester suggested

This.

I would get her to humiliate & emasculate me when I'm on my "vinegar strokes".
