From Amon Rajan interviewing Andrew Neil.
https://twitter.com/amolrajan/status/1369677163583135744
QuoteSpoke to @afneil
for well over an hour on Monday. Long version available tomorrow via #THEMEDIASHOW podcast. In an excerpt for our live show 16.30 @BBCRadio4
  he reveals:

  • @GBNEWS HQ is in Paddington
  • Format of his show includes monologue, Wokewatch and Mediawatch
  • Loads more
The longer version is dripping with insight and revelation, including his relationship with Murdoch; the real reason he left the @bbc; where he draws the line on free speech at @spectator, not least for Taki. And a heck of a lot more spicy stuff that i'll tell you about tmrw.

Wokewatch ffs.

Can't wait for this to be an unmitigated failure.

Gosh can't wait to hear more of the spicy conversation with Andrew Fucking Neil

I hope you're right

ah yes this sounds like unbiased journalism accompanied by edifying, well-researched opinion pieces

Is this just going to be Noel's HQ but for gammons?

hamfist

I heard a bit of the interview.

Neil was banging on about voices from the North being given a place to be expressed, to steer away from the metropolitan dominated media.

He was then asked where the channel will be headquartered.

"Paddington"

I hope they bring out the gunge tank for the 'woke' enemy of the week!

Reading between the lines, this means they've given Darren Grimes (boss' son/work experience kid version of PJW) the teaboy job.

Love how these thick cunts are now using "woke", a term that originated in Black American vernacular from discourse on racism and social inequality, as if it's part of their own hateful vocabulary - a slightly more racist synonym for "PC".

If there's a weather forecast segment I will be highly disappointed if it doesn't incorporate "snowflake" into the name.

bigfatheart

Surely a Mediawatch segment will just show up how little of the media is even remotely left-wing? They'll struggle to get more than five or ten minutes a day.

Or, more likely, it'll be heavyweight 'there's a recipe for avocado on toast in the Guardian!' stuff.

could we give him a job owning Ben Shapiro over and over

Like everyone, hoping this fails. Do people really want to see Neil's sweaty red face as he rants away? On the BBC, his redeeming value was that he was a reasonable political interviewer compared to some of the sycophants and half-wits (that and the fact that he was somewhat restrained by the BBC from getting foam on the camera), but it sounds like he'll ditch the interviews and reporting in favour of saliva-lubed invective. Does anybody, even the reddest gammon, want to hear him ranting about gay kids TV presenters and participation medals? (Other bigots are just better at it, more voice of the people, even occasionally funny.)

Plus everybody is going to be complaining to Ofcom all the time, it will drive him crazy.

what about him being owned by those two ten-year-old girls over and over instead

JamesTC

Why does anybody think a channel aimed at people who don't like change will convince a group of people who don't like change to change the channel?

They watch BBC One and ITV1. Maybe Channel 4 when the Bake Off is on but they aren't happy about it. They don't even know there are more than four fucking channels.

That was a terrific and brutal dissection of the profession, but particularly of Rajan himself, the odious creep. No Lib Dem though, wasn't he so far up George Osborne's arse that it was practically a Human Centipede situation?

Tried to think of something funny to write but this is all so fucking bleak.

Good idea really.  Starve it of the attention.

Triggered ? Happy ! TV
Fucking hell their corporate logo is piss poor.
They've got a Covid-captive audience for the time being. Once things are back to near normal, people are probably fuck the news right off, especially if that 'news' is just angry, offal-faced curmudgeons shit-stirring.

Sounds a bit complacent to be honest.

Whether this shit will live or die is entirely reliant on social media. There needs too be some kind of discipline amongst people to not share videos and images, even if you think you have a great "dunk". Don't play their fucking game.

This will never happen though, if you're the lucky person a well timed retweet or take is an easy 100k likes. When you've got some fucking shit book to shill that's pretty enticing.

It doesn't have to succeed by surviving. Just like UKIP succeeded by pushing the Tories further to the right.

Are you sure about that? If you look at the latest Markle stuff across different ages, it seems to paint a picture of people divided by ages groups, and we know different groups consume news from different places these days with older generations still using news/tv/print and others going online.

Based on this stuff being owned by the media old-guard and whom they're targetting, I think it's going to be more reliant on poaching older reactionary viewers from existing media rather than relying on social media.

Not that not sharing it isn't a bad idea, I just think it's life or death will necessarily depend upon it.
