Real journalism on Covid-19

I don’t know anything about Piers Morgan (other than he is a controversial media figure). But, anyway, this short video extract which I’m posting a link to from the Metro shows that he is a real journalist. He marshalls the necessary points and presents a challenge to those in power (at least an MP) in a clear and systematic way and nearly manages to keep his cool while doing so. He tries to break through the evasions and spin and ask the questions the government is trying to avoid. Excellent stuff. All too rare these days.
