GB News might be engaged with an internal inquiry and the suspension of three presenters, but the broadcaster has aired a weird stunt to rebut suggestions it’s in ‘chaos’.
This week began with comments made by Laurence Fox on Dan Wootton’s programme on Tuesday, in which he targeted female journalist Ava Evans and questioned who would want to’shag’ her.
Ofcom received over 7,000 complaints and initiated an inquiry into the occurrence, which resulted in the suspension of both parties from the station.
A few days later, Reverend Calvin Robinson announced his own suspension after publicly supporting Wootton.
Despite the broadcaster’s own CEO claiming he was ‘appalled’ by the statements that aired on air, several GB News presenters have responded to suggestions that the channel is in disarray – and in an unusual way.
While discussing other media organisation’s coverage of what’s been happening at GB News this week, Andrew Doyle said that a ‘ridiculous’ headline had left him ‘annoyed’.
‘It’s that phrase – “Chaos at GB News” – the idea that all of these people are saying…,’ he said on his show on Saturday morning.
As he continued to talk, a man with untidy hair and a tie over his head burst onto the set and began yelling and rushing in front of the panel, which also featured Lewis Schaffer and Nick DeSanto.
Despite the fact that the scenario was plainly chaotic, all three guys were unconcerned by what was going on, implying that it was all premeditated.
While Andrew was speaking, the man raced behind the desk, ranting, before stopping in front of the camera and yelling again, before walking away quietly.
‘They are using this opportunity to attack us and suggest everything is falling apart,’ Andrew could then be heard saying, after his previous comments were muffled out by the unidentified screaming man.
‘We’ve been in the office for the last four hours now. Everything is fine,’ he continued.
‘What are they talking about?’ he tried to reassure.
Jumping in, Lewis then said he believed other media organisations were trying to ‘shut down’ GB News.
