Moron. Why in the world would you do that? I think Emma chose not to do that because she wouldn't be comfortable doing it. There's no reason for suggesting something as moronic as that. Perhaps Rachel prefers doing these crazy things instead of sitting in a studio all day. Perhaps she's like Emma Hurd, who, as someone in here suggested, might go bonkers sitting around all day, reading the news.

Can people PLEASE stop trying to have a go at Emma Crosby.......she is a BRILLIANT presenter! Everyone makes mistakes you know--perhaps the "big stars" at Sky like Kay Burley should be focused on when they attack people on interviews and when they be extremely unprofessional during a bulletin--there have been countless occasions when I have seen Kay being EXTREMELY unprofessional in particular.



As Kristian said,Emma Crosby chose the presenting role because that is what she is good at.



For example,I think Juliet Errington is one of the best reporters/correspondents at Sky.....but she is a horrid presenter!

Lets not go overboard and use "brilliant", I wouldn't go THAT! far. It?s reminding me of all the whole Bacall/Kidman spat. I'd classify a "brilliant" News Presenter as someone who's well established, a veteran of Journalism, who?s interviewed many high-profile news-makers, and who?s got a proven track record in delivering high quality, insightful interviews and reports. They are always completely dependable and credible at all times, and you never worry that they may lack some of the information. You can?t possibly say that about Emma, not because she?s rubbish, but because she?s hasn?t had the experience. It?s wrong to use the term ?brilliant?, say she?s capable, but not brilliant.



In my opinion the person who displays brilliance at Sky is Adam Bolton. He?s completely capable of doing presenting (Sunday / Election specials), and has the political experience that makes him always rise to the occasion. I've never seen him intimidated, or fluffing through a live two-way.



I think the real "brilliant" presenters are the ones who can instantly swap roles with their colleagues, and answer the complex questions (which they as Presenters are often asking).



Newsroom give us some examples when Kay's been

"extremely unprofessional" *



And can you clarify what you mean't about



"when they attack people on interviews" ? Thanks



* My main recollection of Kay, I wouldn?t go as far to say being ?unprofessional?, but making a ridiculous comment nether the less, was on the day of the Hutton report,when interviewing Alistair Darling and saying



?people aren?t interested in the Hutton Report?.

Ok then



Being extremely unprofessional:

Last week(not sure the day) she was interviewing a commentator regarding something to do with the gas works and basically every answer he gave she disagreed with and she intimidated him ---she was basically being very rude and obnoxious.

Also,she presents her slot far too casually--I can't explain how but she does.......she also is unprofessional when she fixes Mark's papers for him,talks over him and when she is rude to other guests.





Regarding Emma---brilliant was too strong of a word but she is very good-sorry!



Adam Boulton-can't say I like him but he is a very good political correspondent.

He's Political Editor, and why don't you like him? Infact I don't care, you'll probably say something like... he's boring, or he waffles on about stuff I have no idea about.



Why is Emma "very good"? Because she's a young, attractive women? Big deal, what else sets her apart from all the other young female clone presenters?

Kristian: "Rachel prefers doing these crazy things "



I don't think Rachel prefers entering scenes of carnage more than Emma does, but she was there, and she knew it was part of the job for that day. If your sent some where as a Reporter then your expected to go places you'd rather not.

You know what I meant. At least everyone else did. It's very silly of you to nitpick like that.



And your last sentence should be something like this:



If you're sent somewhere as a Reporter then you're expected to go places you'd rather not.Learn some grammar dude. And learn how to use the quote-function as well.



<_<

Sorry I don't "know" what you meant. Please clarify what you meant by



"crazy things"



If i'm wrong about my points, then completely destroy my arguments without resorting to my spelling and punctuation.



Thank you
