    GBNews go woke go broke?

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...ntent-concerns

    Ikea, Grolsch and Kopparberg have suspended adverts due to station’s perceived conflict with their values
    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/m...-b1866799.html

    Several well-known brands have pulled advertising from upstart channel GB News amid concerns over its content.

    Ikea, cider firm Kopparberg and Octopus Energy have all withdrawn their adverts on the network following its launch on Sunday.

    GB News, positioned as a rival to the news and current affairs offerings of the likes of BBC and Sky, is fronted by veteran broadcaster Andrew Neil.

    He said the channel would not be “another echo chamber for the metropolitan mindset that already dominates so much of the media”.

    However, GB News has faced accusations it will be broadcasting US-style partisan news shows in the UK and campaign group Stop Funding Hate challenged advertisers on social media.
    So far this morning they have discussed the rise of marriage age with Savid Javid noting that 41% of forced marriages investigated involve Paskistani/Bangledeshi originated couples. Interestingly Mercy Muroki revealed that stat. The lack of english spoken amongst immigrants is a factor (Savid Javi mentioned that was an issue)

      Kopparberg hardly advertise on TV, they would have booked 1 advert and got the press release ready to go. All so tiring.

      And it won't look so smart if spoons drop the brand as they must sell 50% of the tulip.

      I'm guessing the channel is going to be wall to wall equity release adverts anyway. 90% of the viewers are probably over 50.

          They are certainly off to a flying start. Reading out Texts/Tweets from both Mike Hunt and Mike Oxlong on live TV

          Apparently they have an exclusive interview lined up with Phil McKrackin, The landlord of The Rammit Inn, Tillit, Herts. on the impact of COVID restrictions on the pub trade.

            Yeah because interviewing cabinet ministers , prominent MPs and business leaders 24*7 is entirely possible. Interviewing tony Abbott was low brow.

            So far in the first week they have interviewed

            Boris Johnson
            Priti Patel
            Sajid Javid
            Liz Truss
            Dr Ros Jones
            Andrew Drury (journalist that interviewed Miz Begum)
            Dr Simon Clarke
            Michael Gove
            Harry Redknapp
            Dunkers
            Roger Daltrey
            Rod Liddle
            Tiago Alves (Grenfell survivor)
            Inky (retired coal miner)
            Maya Forstater
            John Barnes (footballer)

            etc.

            various business owners regarding the effect of Covid and 'congestion charges'

            https://twitter.com/GBNEWS

            Not bad in 3 days more than comparable to LBC. How do ITV & BBC compare?

            The news, interviews & opinion is constant with little (so far) repetition.

                  Haven't heard "Danny the donkey is tired please send us enough to buy him outright each month so we can make sure this doesnt happen"
                  But yes it probably will as their target market is middle calls, middle-> old age and SKY are the aggregator.
