Despite shifting from the BBC to ITN and from economics to politics ( or was he pushed) Peston continues to be Downing Street's mouthpiece.
Yesterday I heard him on ITN parroting scare story after scare story all attributed to anonymous EU officials, diplomats etc. It ran along the lines if we dared to vote for Brexit the EU would give us a good kicking to teach us to vote the right way next time. Nothing he said was sourced so it was all uncheckable. It sounded like him reading a Downing Street brief from Flashman Dave Cameron.
Is Peston the best the UK media corps can come up with?
