BBC Newsnight: 'I deserve an apology'Shanene Thorpe for Salem-News.com
Allegra Stratton redefines the art of needless, vindictive reporting.
(LONDON) - I was approached by the BBC to be interviewed on Newsnight to talk about what it's like being a working mum struggling to pay rent and housing costs.
Of course I was happy to do it, being a working mum is something I’m proud of. It hasn't always been plain sailing. But I did not expect to be personally scrutinised, have judgements made about my choices and asked why I chose to have my child - a beautiful, sociable and happy three year old girl.
I have done my best for her and wanted to bring her up independently. But the BBC has humiliated me and I want them to apologise for portraying me and my family in this way.
Please sign my petition to ask for an apology from Newsnight.
If you didn't know otherwise, you'd be forgiven for assuming that this stitched-up single mum was on the dole.
Spiteful and oozing aggression, Allegra Stratton looks ready to reach across the table and physically attack her.
What isn't mentioned, because it doesn't suit the agenda, is that this woman HAS A JOB. Stratton even met her at work - but decided to conduct the interview in the cafe downstairs!
Note the interviewee's closing line: "I'm asking for help towards, I'm not asking for a free handout". The real scandal here is low pay - and BBC bias.
