Which do we think we'll end up being the Fox News of the UK?

Will it be Murdoch-backed News UK, or will it be Brexit Hedge Fund/Andrew Neil backed GB News?

  • Two cheeks of the same arse. Hope it doesn't turn into an arm's race to the bottom/most extreme.

    Despite him being an arse Neil is at least a decent broadcaster
  • Not sure how this is this going to work when there are laws in Britain re: TV news needing to be impartial. But either way, eurgh. Look forward to the further polarisation of the masses.

    Think this will be the bigger story. Will impartiality in the media be dead or will Ofcom have them over a barrel? 

    The rumour that Dacre is going to become head of Ofcom solves that issue...
  • If you are not already, make sure you familiarise yourself with Legatum, a major shareholder in GBN
  • Anyone would think that this pile of crap has come from the Guardian 

    Oh hang on
  • I hear it will be almost as right wing as the BBC! :D

    You pearl-clutchers need to read the boy who cried wolf.

    This, for me, is quite possibly one of the worst developments in the media for so long, although one of the most entertaining. 

    But when I've been listening to swivel eyed loons moaning about the BBC for so long, I don't think most people will take this seriously.

    I find the idea behind these stations funny, this weird paranoia on the right that they are being fucked over, and that's considering they've been in power for the majority of the post war years, and just 4 years ago got to fuck over the economic model of the country with no plan 
    Didn't you know it is all the fault of the Labour party eleven years ago though? You need to keep up mate...  :D

    Good point, imagine how many extra nurses we would have if it wasn’t for the chaos of Ed Milliband

    I think after looking over the US, a certain group of people have seen the £ and political sway they could have with a Fox News-style channel in the UK. 

    One group wants to cut all tariffs and turn the UK into a sweatshop. The other is Rupert Murdoch. 
  • Dan Wootton first hire for GB News. 

    Will present a daily show 5 times a week. 

    Former Columnist for the Sun and now writing for the Mail. Big Brexiteer and lockdown skeptic.

    Imagine the poor soul who is having to sift through the resumes for this collection of contrary c###s! Like swimming in a sewer. 
  • So who's getting Piers Morgan first?

    Neil Oliver is a great correspondent, hes on talk radio every week. You should tune into what he says, especially about Scottish affairs, he certainly dispels a lot of arse licking to the SNP from posters here.

    I’m well aware of Oliver’s political stance, Chips. He lost the plot sometime ago. Why do you think he has been invited to get involved with this ‘shower of shit’ along with Michelle Dewberry lol.

    Wait till it starts and see, then comment. Dont be like the other dinosaurs who have made ridiculous comments playing to the audience as usual, with their inferior knowledge. You are far better than that.

    I gave talk radio a follow and a listen for about a week.  I’ve genuinely heard more informed political opinions in the beehive on a Friday. 
    Explains a lot. I am sure their news teams will be devastated to know that, and in case you would have called in, miss out on your worldly words of wisdom.

    Doubt they’ll be devastated unless they read CL, you on the other hand sound a little upset though.
