New UK news channel.

Post by Chuchi » June 14, 2021, 5:26 pm

GB News was launched Sunday. It can be watched live through an app which is available on the App Store and Google play.It will be interesting to see if it has any impact on the BBC?

Had a quick look. Apparently a right-leaning political channel with part American ownership. Has been suggested it will be UK's 'Fox News' equivalent, but looking at the current subjects for discussion more like Daily express live .......

I'm sure rabid of Tunbridge Wells would love it.

So it’s aimed at those who have the proven ability to swallow BS on an industrial scale – i.e. those who still support the lunacy, the sheer dumb stupidity and the economic illiteracy of Brexit.

Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism (and economic suicide).

Humiliated to have Johnson (a racist, serial liar and hypocrite) as UK Prime Minister.

Well said that man. Peoples inability to actually read and digest news sensibly has long gone the way of the Dodo. A sad fact of the times I fear

Opinions are like Aholes ..everyone has one ..fortunately

That would be quite a high percentage of the UK population then as recently over 70% and rising now backed Brexit and confirmed their joy at it actually happening .. with things like being out of the European medical agency EU law changes and regaining sovereignty being top of the list of reasons to be cheerful....

You won't like it DM. Their sports pundit has already said that Scotland's EURO opener showed great promise and that Kane & Co. are in for a very rude "wheels coming off" moment at Wombley.

Hopefully the new channel is a responsible and sophisticated perspective from the right. If it's the nutbar right and becomes commercially successful, this kind of drivel can do great harm.

Audience ratings have started well. Ive enjoyed seeing parts of Britain I'd never heard of and I like they are linking up with the local media which I feel has been eroded over the years but are are an important mouthpiece for the communities they serve. The link below has a 5 minute video of the launch hosted by Andrew Neil,you can make you're own decision on whether to view.

So it's kinda like Britain's Al Jazeera then?

"... Several guests, including Nigel Farage and Sir Alan Sugar, were also cut off briefly in the middle of interviews."


Off to a great start then! I need to check it out.

Actually, now you mention it, that he's gonna stop spouting total cr*p, and finally "put a sock in it" would be nice to know :lol:

It appears that some corporate entities are less than enthusiastic about the venture.

The GB News boycott is a turning point: big business must end its woke campaigning or it may not survive the backlash

"First it was their implacable, undemocratic hostility to Brexit, then their embrace of wokedom, and now their pathetic boycott of GB News, the centre-Right TV start-up. What is going on in boardrooms across Britain and the West? What has it come to when the likes of Ikea and Nivea cannot tolerate free speech and media plurality, and yet continue to trade in China and Saudi Arabia?"

Wokewashing by the cancel culture wokeists knows no bounds.
