Channel 4 News’ Cathy Newman staged a sit-in at BBC’s headquarters this morning.
She was at the BBC to question the director-general about gender pay but the corporation pulled the interview, “despite doing every other broadcast outlet.”
“Now staging a sit-in at @BBC HQ until we get the interview with the director-general confirmed yesterday,” said Cathy on Twitter.
“Cancelled because of ‘time issues’ – yet interviews with other outlets before & after ARE taking place. I’m prepared for a long wait.”

The interview will air on tonight’s Channel 4 News from 7.00pm.
