A fresh brand new news channel was launched on Sunday night. GB News UK is off to a promising start to deliver non biased news from all parts of the UK, and the world, and from all walks of life. They have a team of experienced journalists and presenters, and it's looking like they are going to report on a wide range of news items. Their tag line is, 'If it matters to you, it matters to us'. I am catching it live on their web site, it is available in other places, I haven't looked into that.
Their regional reporters are out and about speaking to ordinary people about local issues. The studio teams are knitting it all together, with their lively chatty format. It has a positive spin on it, and is looking more well balanced than the established main stream media. It makes a refreshing change from the cardboard cut outs who are paid mega amounts of dosh to look glam and read from an autocue.
It's early days. They have had their share of negative comments spouted on social media platforms, mainly I think because it's going to shake things up a bit. As far as I can see the only agenda that they have is to tell it like it really is, which is going to cause some angst among those who are half asleep.
I won't be watching it every day all day, I will pick bits up from the Twittteratta. I am not going to become a news junkie.
I think we need to make the best of the sunshine while it is still here. Thunderstorms are predicted. Time for breakfast. Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
