Ofcom must keep GB News in check

In early March 2024, Ofcom suggested that the rightwing broadcaster GB News doesn’t have to meet the same impartiality standards as broadcasters with a bigger audience. But we think this two-tier approach is unlawful.

Case overview

GB News is a free-to-air news television and radio channel, launched in 2021, which is widely seen to be politically biased. Its roster of presenters has included Tory MPs Sir Jacob Rees-Mogg, Esther McVey, Philip Davies and Lee Anderson, who recently defected to the rightwing populist party Reform UK. The former Channel 4 journalist Michael Crick, who the channel took off air during an interview, described GB News as “rightwing propaganda”.
