Re: GB News

Expected but still a sign GB News is going to go in a different direction that he doesn’t agree with. They’ve had a lot of the other experienced journalists resign too.

I don't think they really want journalists/news, just ranting opinions for a very small audience....

It must really worry you that people have opinions different to yours.

Not really but if you're just giving narrow opinions to others that have the same opinions, it doesnt make for great TV/debate. Confirmation bias I believe its called.

A news channel it certainly isn't.

It's basically driven by economics - they can't afford the costs of running a news station like Sky News but a views station akin to LBC is more affordable. But whether the new format pays its way remains to be seen.

Could be worse - at least he doesn’t have a Forum Signature decrying those with different views…

You mean bias like exists on Channel 4?

The wokeness from the BBC?

Sky News is not so great these days either.

This goes to show you have not watched the channel. As for narrow mindedness, take a look in the mirror.

The Times understands that the television station’s increasingly populist agenda is polarising the newsroom and that some insiders have seen enough.

Three senior producers quit within days of each other last week. They included Jamie McConkey, who had been producing Neil’s programme since launch, Sarah Weaver, a senior producer for presenters including Michelle Dewberry, and Joceline Sharman, a senior daytime producer.
In July their Director of Programming went: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-knee-row.html

All summer there have been occasionally reports of falling outs and resignations.

You can get a laugh out of GB News, some of the output is hilarious. If they could get Alan Partridge to do Sport, the line up would be complete.

As much as my chuckle muscles will take! I've also got to fit in readers comments in the Torygraph, the views of the swivel eyed loon mob are always hugely entertaining

Re: GB News

I've also taken to spending some of my spare time (and I have lots of it) reading comments on stories on many of the news sites.
They often make fantastic reading, and would provide excellent study material for groups interested in the link between IQ and mass hysteria

Sometimes when reading them, I childishly associate names from here to comments on there . .

Re: GB News

Just watching it now and one of the guests nominated Debbie Harry as her Greatest Briton. It went unchallenged.
