Robert Peston's annoying voice! « on: September 25, 2008, 11:19 PM »

Can't believe I'm creating a thread on this and probably no one will reply but as an avid BBC News watcher one of the presenters is driving me crazy. How annoying is Robert Peston's voice?! He is the BBC's business editor and he drives me absolutely mad!!!!

I can't remember a TV presenter with such a stupid voice, he pauses his sentances in all the wrong places and also raises his voice at completely random times. Not only that but he acts like an arrogant cock!

Rory Bremner has taken the piss out of him, although his take is actually very kind, he's so much worse than that.



Anyone else heard him yet?

Yay, my first member of the club! hug

Go to 2:20 of the video I posted up, that's a very accurate take of his voice... god I don't understand why he hasn't been fired or at least told to sort it out no

I've taken to watching Bloomberg and CNN for business news because he's so crap!

He was an annoying twat when he blogged on the BBC News site... don't know if he still does.

That's so weird! I saw this guy on TV the other day and thought exactly the same thing! How did he get on TV? he's enough to make anyone change channels! Although I didn't know who he was until I came  onto this thread!

I just found this, it's from The Times:

He navigates broadcasts with all the ease of a man in a blindfold driving down the M4. One watches, agog, to see if he will get to the . . . end . . . of . . . each . . . sentence. Then he will suddenly speed upandsayeverythinginarush. He puts heavy emphasis on the wrong words and punctuates his nasal analysis with nervous, snorting laughs.

Great idea!

I've been watching him a hell of a lot recently as he's considered the guru of the economic crisis at the moment, and I have to say, he's drastically improved his voice. Very bearable now, maybe he's actually listened to the haters Smile

No he's still just as annoying I think. It doesn't help that he seems to be the first on the news and have the longest things to say with the economy in the state that it is. It's been driving me mad this week.  duh

(Please read the following in Peston's prickish voice)

Today, I have announced that I will be collecting a big fat BBC pay cheque worth millions of........ pounds. What does ..... this mean... for us? Well.... George, it means that the banks are giving me money to shut the f*** up so that millions of people who watch the news no longer have to deal with my smarmy arrogance, especially now that I have won an RTS award (somehow)

Dear God, please remove Peston from TV forever. His voice is not of your creation, so why let him s*** all over your lovely world. Wink
