If it's anything like Fox News where you can get a gig based on their connections to the GOP or being a child of one of the main anchors, such as Steve Doocy's son, you've got a good chance of getting on.

They've missed a bit.

But I've been thinking about this. Because of this outfits leanings of varying angles of degrees towards the right, I assume that you will, at some point in the application/interview process, have to declare your voting and political leanings? Because you can't see them hiring just anybody incase they have minor/medium/hard liberal or socialist views of society and life - exactly the sort they need to weed out before airtime.

Which in turn leads to some very interesting questions on whether this is discrimination, and no worse than denying someone a job based on gender, skin colour, regional accent, appearance or sexuality?

Exactly the sort of debate that riles up some on the right and makes them shout a lot, and get annoyed with modern society.

How does it work at The Sun or The Guardian?

I've personally known two journalists who are Corbynistas who worked for the Sun.

Of course the likes of Boulton and Burley worked for Sky News for years without their left wing leaning views being known. In fact, back in 2010, they were both hated by the left (how wrong they were). The Guardian picked up on the slightest of Burley's on screen mistakes. She was hated.

Has GB News not launched an official website yet? Every time I Google GB News, there is no official website or even a hint of when they plan to start.

Some people have said "early Spring 2021". Anyone has any idea, or any response from GB News?

Thanks

Yeah he is a joke. He asked a question without doing his research. The entire Biden/Putin call is was already posted to Whitehouse.com (unlike his predecessor) and he thought he was going to catch Biden out. Instead he got a delicious comeback. I was here for it and cackling with laughter the entire time.



I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.

Good grief this is actually worse than I thought.

Andrew Neil has retweeted Amol's tweet which pretty much confirms his appointment.

And if that doesn't tell you what a blot on the television landscape this channel will be, nothing will.

I suppose that'll be a blow both for The Sun and potentially for Murdoch's rival effort - I could have foreseen them utilising him regularly.

I'm sure there are lying, inconsiderate scumbags lining up around the block to replace him. Let's face it, the Sun's probably not short of young journalists moulded in his image.

Ugh well that's me giving the channel a wide berth then. Even in the media landscape, Wootton comes across as a particularly horrible creature.
