Sounds like a "perfect business plan" for any normal "small business" 🙄
But what's a mere £31 mill to shady private plutocrats if it buys them influence and political power?

Could that be because it didn't lose anywhere as near as much as SkyNews does?

And we won't talk about beeb news, as that runs off the publics taxes.

Unfortunatly News Channels don't make money, Not here in the UK anyway, Money pits spring to mind. TalkTV with Murdoch behind them are a safer bet but would also still lose a shed load.

At the end of the day, not enough people watch them. Which is a shame as they can come up with some really good stuff.

Just my personal view but as someone who has GBN on for most of the day and on most days, there is a diminution in quality once you get past around 6pm I’ve noticed.
It all gets a bit trashy and tabloid, although I do like Simon Evans’s input.
I took this advice and watched for 15 or so minutes earlier today. To my knowledge I'd only seen that young fella Tom in the daytime for about 2 minutes in the day and had only ever seen it in the evening where it's not to my taste.

No idea who the presenter was (was on sometime between 12-1) and was a couple of people once if the bbc. The presenter was quiet, and listened. The speakers were mildly interesting and it was okay. Certainly much better than the evening.
