Why are you mentioning it? You've made it obvious you don't like or watch the channel.
You should have said, inline with this being a comedy site, 'first time I've heard of a rat jumping on a sinking ship'

Alas, the channel has made some poor decisions. The morning show is very amateurish with unknown presenters and bad lighting and picture quality. Not to mention their channel number is too far down for browsers to come across.

Sky have a whole bunch of news channels next to each other on the channel list - but not GB News.

I would presume the investors have budgeted for a years funding. Plenty of time to improve.

I read that Katie Hopkins is being thrown out of an Australian reality show and then the country itself for deranged right wing tweets, so there'll be a berth for her when she gets back.

Yeah, she got pissed with power.
I used to agree with a lot of what she said but she went too far down the road.

It seems to be going down the toilet. I suppose there are just so many news stations now that people can't be arsed with a new one whatever its viewpoint is. A shame really.

Yep just the right amount of hatred and bigotry and callousness and spite is fine

But when it goes just a bit too far
It's simply just not on

She struck me as someone with a personality disorder, very narcissistic. If it was put on, she'd have become an actress, she was that keen to get her mug on telly.

An interesting list of people that never made it as actors, but were keen to be on telly. I guess they were being themselves. Teary

I like that one of the three subjects they endlessly talk about is cancel culture and how bad it is. Then Guto Harri takes a knee, is suspended by his bosses and then effectively cancelled by GB News viewers in a torrent of abuse. It's almost like GB News and it's viewers are everything they say they hate about left.

Well this is nonsense! It's in amidst all the other news channels on all platforms I've seen.

Sky, for example, runs news channels from 501 to 524, with some SD variants around 880. GB News is on 515.

Freeview has SD news channels from 231 to 236, the latter of which is GB News.

There really is some crazy conspiracy theorising amongst certain groups over this channel - both pro and anti - none of which stand up to a moment's scrutiny.
