Is the Brexit Countdown still in the corner of the screen?
Brexit-free means just that. No Brexit. No countdown. No mention of it on the ticker. No verbal mention of it either. The only place the B word appears is in the DOG
. It is like reporting on another world this Brexit-free channel.
Brexit Free and the main Sky News channel seem to have different running orders too, presumably down to having its own editor. The NI Abortion story led on Brexit Free, while it's mid-way down the running order of non-Brexit news on the main channel at 11pm.
What Brexit Free has shown from what I've watched this evening is how the saturated Brexit coverage on Sky News is making our output as isolationist as US news channels that dedicate their airtime to opinion heads and Trump.
