Appropriately scathing article on GBNews:


well spotted that it's not really important whether anyone watches it (they won't) as long as they can create that obnoxious talking point energy
Almost like they are stepping into a space that needs filling so the other msm can cite them "for balance"

I saw some of this on Youtube. The audio’s glitching and way too echoey, the light balance is bolloxed, looks like it’s streamed on a potato, etc – I’ve seen people doing Fleetwood Mac album reviews in their garden with better quality than this. Even Food Dip looks and sounds more professional.

Someone on Twitter said this has the potential to become a cult cringe classic, which might be right.

This stuff will either transform the UK news media landscape, or it will be rare YouTube footage that Taylor Parkes will be making jokes about on Chart Music in 15 years time.

that's the case here with Newsmax and One America (OANN), they aren't carried on most cable systems, and have a tiny viewership and marketshare, but make their impact on viral social posts of program discussions and comments.

also nonsense when she says everyone makes mistakes or does stupid things, we should be able to mock them and they mock themselves. but IRL, people aren't being mocked for mistakes or dumb things they've done. they're being mocked for their beliefs.

A new low, even by his standards

He’s an obvious sacrificial candidate to the gods, to be deposited in the fenlands so that in 4000AD future archaeologists ponder wtf happened (just as we do with Tollund Man)

Ex-BBC host was unhappy with technical mistakes, loss of key staff and the channel’s political direction

The man is a buffoon if he honestly didn't realise he was spawning the new Poundland version of Fox, and where that would inevitably lead. Farage was inevitable. Hopkins likely next.
