Video: Nick Robinson loses it with protesters

Nick Robinson was filmed destroying a protester’s placard after signing off from BBC News last night.

The BBC’s irritated political editor grabbed the anti-war sign, which had been wafting around in the background while he had been live on air, and snapped it in half before protesters shouted “shame on you”.!




“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS at the London School of Economics, reacts to news that the UK government forced the Guardian into destroying hard drives that contained information leaked by Edward Snowden.
