New channel is keen to reject comparisons with Fox News despite positioning itself as ‘anti-woke’
When GB News launches at 8pm on Sunday, viewers will for the first time be able to immerse themselves in a non-stop, opinionated, US-style “anti-woke” current affairs television channel aimed at a British audience. But there’s one thing those running the outlet are desperate to make clear: please don’t compare us to Fox News.
“We’re going to embrace the mood of the nation and communities that feel their voice has not been heard in the mainstream media,” said Angelos Frangopoulos, the Australian media executive brought in to launch the channel. “We’re just being true to telling the stories that people want to talk about.”
