I’m quite a fan of Newsnight-clip in which Jeremy Paxman to twelve times the same question to the British Interior minister Michael Howard. Nonetheless: a critical barrage is not the only way to get a politician to destabilize. When Steve Stevaert ever months was followed by a VRT team, he stood at a particular moment in the eye with a homeless man from antwerp. The man wouldn’t budge, until the SP.A-topper are cool lost: “Give that boy a beer, say”. There was no question, but the camera recorded it a bit side of Stevaert, that he otherwise hidden managed to keep.

In Alloo with Theo Francken went Luk Alloo is not for the Paxman approach. Unfortunately did the presenter also more than register. He was flashy in the picture, as he now already twenty years. And he asked constant questions, the one still onnozeler than the other. Alloo there was, for example, when the secretary of state two weeks ago in the parliament grilled over the law on the woonstbetredingen. Not an easy session: the plan was from the majority taken under fire and eventually withdrawn. But that was the viewer to remember. Afterwards wanted to Alloo know what Francken went to eat: A sandwich or a spaghetti?’ And he was on a roll: ‘do you prefer to Eat sausages with stoemp?’

Apparently, Alloo of the opinion that the VTM viewers on a week not more than a publireportage be able to bear it. But even then, it was the uninspired way in which he went searching for the man behind the politician embarrassing. Just for Francken was the studio of The appointment to walk, he was separately taken: ‘Nervous?’ When the secretary of state, the parliament had asked him Alloo a second time: ‘Stressed?’ At the end of the broadcast – for a N-VA-new year’s reception in Herentals godbetert – the question of questions still to fire: ‘Nerves?’

Zielenpellerij

Difficult issues went Alloo professional out of the way. No questions about the Sudan lie that Charles Michel so angry. No objection when the ‘left roeptoeters’ by pass the meat grinder were filmed. And if ‘surprise’ agendeerde Alloo’t walk by Maximilien, but a harmless visit to Franckens former boarding school.

By that apolitieke approach managed to Alloo’t to have an exciting broadcast in each other to cross. Why he tried not to portray how one of the most popular politicians of the country for weeks had to fight for his survival? Why did that barrage of irrelevance – ” what music do you keep? Is your wife a good sounding board?’ but by and by, by and by?

Francken seemed opn the duration itself to have had with the zielenpellerij. Fortunately, he knew there would be 56 minutes of free advertising in the horizon layers.

Alloo. Tuesday, VTM, 21.45 hours.
