Nick Robinson, who is the host of the BBC’s Today programme on Radio 4 tweeted “Will a British “Fox News” channel improve debate, decision making and democracy in this country? Send your answers to @Ofcom”
Robinson – the former political reporter for the BBC’s flagship news programmes was accused of “encouraging his Twitter following to try and bombard the media regulator to get a new market entrant blocked through confected “impartiality” claptrap”.
The new service that has already received widespread support from right-wingers and Brexiteers and sent Lefties running for their gender-neutral safe spaces registered with Ofcom on the 24th August and is set to hit UK screens in early 2021.
Sources told Politicalite that former staffers and faces from the Murdoch-era of Sky News have been at News UK’s HQ on London Bridge.
Murdoch’s media manor on the River Thames has reportedly had “heavy” TV broadcasting equipment installed.
The Ofcom listing states GB News as “News” and “Editorial”.
