    Anyone watched GB News?

    Re: Anyone watched GB News?

    Apparently there was a cracking Shaun Ryder interview on there last night.

    For a channel that nobody claims to watch everyone has an opinion on it

    It's hilarious at the minute but sadly it'll improve

    I heard the other day that some of the viewer comments they displayed were by a Mike Oxlong and Cleo Torres.

    As I've not got a clue as to how to access it, my opinion is formed by a mixture of what I hear about it and what I would imagine such a channel to be like. What I didn't expect was its apparent Crossroads/Acorn Antiques production values, because I'd assumed there'd be some serious money behind it - as Delmbox says, I'd expect it to improve on that front.

    Not aimed at Northern Ireland viewers then.

    Not heard of it until now, been on a bit of a news detox in general. Maybe they meant it.

    The short time I watched GB News on its opening night the entire set up seemed amateurish. I had expected rather better given the amount of money that has been invested in this venture. I can't imagine the station lasting long unless their production and editorial values improve considerably.

    For those who want to give it a try the channel is on 236 (Freeview) and 515 (Sky).

    I did wonder if this was a windup to get more exposure

    It worked if it did

    The advertisers may or may not be back on board, but it seems Andrew Neil has cleared off/gone on holiday/arranging world domination as he will not be on GB News for a while.

    Not watched anything yet, it seems to be a bit like a TV version of Lbc. Pick a controversial topic and chat rubbish about it for an hour. A whole channel based around the world view of people like farage and Morgan is a bit of a nightmare. Although I've always liked Andrew Neil , so would probably watch if he was interviewing anyone decent.

    I'm terms of an unfair news agenda, I'm more concerned about nation.cymru, the 'news site ' that the original link is from. Funded by the Welsh government, seemingly as a bit of a propaganda machine for Welsh labour. Not sure how that's even allowed to happen.

    it doesn't seem like a propaganda machine to me

    I sometimes read your posts and wonder to myself… “is he just talking to himself?”…

    I’m pretty sure I spout some inane drivel on here as well, but by now we all know that you’re a Germanophile, a world traveller who likes things off the beaten track and a supreme linguist.

    Having said that I do read a fair bit of what you post, although wanting to understand German humour is stretching it 👍
