Signs of life in the UK outpost of Civilization
A new TV channel called “GB News” only opened on Sunday, to smashingly good ratings. GB News outdid the BBC and Sky on its first day as 164,000 people tuned in to see if they got real news for a change instead of repetitive inane cliches approved by some middle level bureaucratic arts graduate who was pushing their own political agenda to pump up their grifting salary and impress their friends. The BBC got 133,000 viewers and Sky 57,000.
BBC hit by mass boycott as viewers flock to Andrew Neil’s GB News and cancel TV licences
by Laura O’Callaghan, Express
AVID fans of GB News have hailed Britain’s newest TV channel and vowed to continue their boycott of the Beeb as they seek information from alternative sources.
Naturally, the collectivist bullies have gone after the advertisers, and while many spineless corporate CEOs have folded to cancel culture, at least one team is fighting back. Companies with weak CEOs include Kopparberg, Grolsch, Nivea, Open University, and Ikea.
The Co-op announced that it would not remove its advertising.
”Hi, we have developed a detailed and thoughtful advertising approach, which is driven by 3 principles:
- “We will not seek to affect the editorial independence of publications or channels.
- “We will not undermine the commercial value of our society for our members.
- “We will ensure our values and principles are clear and undiminished regardless of surrounding content.”
Former Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn tweeted that The Co-op had “knocked it out of the park” and he would be proud to shop at his local Co-op store.
As Sacha O’Sullivan says: GB News has been ‘cancelled’ and made a roaring success out of it.
In his opening introduction, Andrew Neil vowed to expose “cancel culture” and focus on the news that matters to people outside of the “Westminster bubble”.
Right on queue, a host of companies from Octopus Energy to the cider firm Kopparberg began pulling their advertising on the channel. Ikea, only hours after being fined €1million for spying on their own employees, claimed the news channel was not in line with its “humanistic values”.
