No Burley today, Emma did Lunchtime Live and was good to, aswell as being better looking than the pushy one she is also good at interviewing people and seems more confident on her own

I'm not sure about Emma, i just find her accent a bit dodgy.

Notice how kay has toned down the ego, look on tv ark for the first Lunchtime Live from 2005 and the way she is talking its as if she's on prozac.

I think Emma is shining, her presenting is the best, and I think it is nice to see her presenting by herself ie Lunchtime Live, lot more confident, take Lorna off on Sunrise and bring on Emma I think, she laughs, she is bubbly, better than some,

I agree, I think Emma works best on her own, I noticed it when she does Sat Live. When she is with another presenter she seems happy to take a backseat. She interviews people well, Burley interogates people, always asking the difficult questions to make people squirm, fine when she is talking to the PM but not so good when its a 4yr old kidnap victim thats just been reunited with its parents!

The only presenter Emma works well with is Chris or Mark but I think Sky News should give her, her own slot bring new changes, I get sick of the usual faces ie Kay, Martin Stanford, it is a shame how Chris, Mark, Steve & Emma only have bloody weekend slots

That's because their world news is confined to the hours of 0400 - 0600. I sometimes catch the last hour, i.e 0500.

Though the impartiality of SN is questionable on any given day, it is a national news channel, not international, so unsurprisingly UK based news takes precedence.

What do expect from a news service that broadcasts from England. Al Jazeera reports mostly on Middle Eastern issues, FOX News reports mostly US news, France 24 broadcasts mostly Fench news, Russia Today Russian, CCTV9 Chinese and so on...and on...and...



Sorry, the issue is what again?
