GB News to start broadcasting

Saw bits of it but not really much different to the other two imo.

In terms of viewership can see it dropping over time especially if it just becomes another clone over time.

I quite like it. The multiple technical issues are comedic. But this really strikes me as a low budget (comparatively-it's still cost millions) attempt at producing something different. Yes Dan Woollen is very "The Sun", but I've had it on 24/7 the last couple of days whilst I work in my office, and on the whole...I'm actually impressed. Gunning for these youngsters in their shipping container! Those that are trying to shut them down should be ashamed.

It will probably be better when they get their radio broadcasting up and running as I think that they will get a bigger daytime audience than evenings only
 
Teething issues for sure, particularly with sound. They put out a tweet this morning saying they've made improvements. (Just as I've typed that Colin Brazier's lips are moving but there's no sound :LOL: )

I think it's got potential. Brazier and Muroki have had a brilliant show this morning with non other than the demi god Liz Truss on, followed by Sajid Javid. I think people want to see good guests and good interviews. Nailed it this morning.

It's extremely balanced from everything I've watched so far. The difference is they're willing to discuss the topics BBC/sky news don't want to and don't shut the discussion down as soon as the person on the left has finished speaking. They've made sure all voices are heard on both sides of whichever debate they're discussing, moreover the presenters are often the people playing devil's advocate and ensuring the view on the left is heard properly. Guests are definitely more centre right driven, granted.

These people wanting to cancel it before it's begun must be gutted it's not quite the vile, racist right wing fox news that they portrayed it to be. When you see people complaining it's too similar to sky and bbc, you know it must be relatively balanced!

Dan Wooton is probably the biggest outlier. He's like a walking edition of the Sun (for good reason obviously). His obsession with the royals does have a place for a lot of the viewership though.

The biggest difference in format is their clear interest in the whole country, particularly the North and don't see the UK as one homogenous London centric place. That in it's self will get viewership.

Let's hope not. That poor bloke from Mumford officially got cancelled today too. It's never ending.

It's really sad how opinions can't be stated without someone taking offence to it today.

Free speech is non existent today sadly.

I don't believe GB news will go away but can see them going through a very tough period with those who would anything they can to shut them down.

The bigger problem is that these people aren't even offended. They're just making out like they are to have someone cancelled that they don't agree with.
