Just seen a trailer for ITV News with the Tagline 'Independent TV News is what we stand for'

The font wasn't Reith and looked an awful lot like the Guardian's front.

Why would ITV be using Reith in any case?

Edit: Silly late night mixup between Rieth and Reem 🤦‍♂️


News to me. Did anyone manage to capture this?

Surely Independent Television News is what they actually stand for.

Looks like Reem to me, not sure where your point about it being the Guardian's font originates from Confused

Wouldn’t that be SITN? Wink

It's just the end of the trailer. There is other text throughout the trailer not in reem.

The other text looks like reith

Since it mentions independent news. I’m curious how much input does the ITV network have on the newscast? I know they own the largest chunk of ITN. But if there’s a big story about ITV in a negative light (like that talk show suicide) could they ask it to be struck?

That's not how British television news really works - and I suspect if someone in the ITV management tried to do that it would backfire spectacularly.

Unlike the US networks, interference from the management of ITV in ITN would be unacceptable and it would be reported to the regulator Ofcom who would come down like a tonne of bricks on ITV management.

I was wondering if it ever happened. I know CBS and NBC reported like crazy the Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer/Megyn Kelly stories.
