I rarely watch GBNews if being honest, when I do watch it, I get annoyed easily.

Ah - the TV equivalent of the Daily Fail. Hates all, especially the viewers and loves no one.
A channel with little revenue that has always ran at a loss and relied on being bankrolled by its owners decided to splash out on expensive “talent” and dug a hole for itself? There’s a surprise.
Well, it seems like the subsidising of hot garbage only goes so far then.
GB News isn't meant to make a profit. It is one of several 'news' organisations that exists only to push politics to the right.

True, though frankly I suspect vanity motivations outweigh tactical ones.

Yeah they are so biased it’s unreal.

I’d say the same thing about Sky and BBC but those channels (at least when I watch them on TV/Air) aren’t trying to push the narrative that they are unbiased unlike GB (I’ve seen say on air several times I think that they are unbiased but I can’t show an actual source for that at the moment).

And they talk about irrelevant things in my view in their series “headliners” which is supposed to be the equivalent of press review/the papers I think.

A shame that GBNews could have been something different (that goes against the traditional MSM narrative in a good way) but doesn’t look like they do this.
Ah well, I'm sure most of them will get reprehensible jobs elsewhere.

The owners have deep pockets and revenues are increasing (Talk TV are going online only so this will increase) so while not sustainable financially, it won’t go anywhere anytime soon (though I’d be interested to know if Sky News alone actually makes a profit).
