Nigel Farage hits out at ‘mainstream propaganda’ as he announces GB News prime time slot | UK | News

Nigel Farage has officially joined GB News, after teasing about a “big career change” earlier today. Mr Farage will host his own show starting Monday in the prime time evening slot from 7pm. In announcing his new venture, the former Brexit Party leader gave a tour of the GB News headquarters.

During the video tour, Mr Farage hit out at “propaganda” from mainstream broadcast media like the BBC.

He acknowledged that the channel had faced “a bit of criticism” since its launch in June and admitted there were “one or two tech issues”. 

However, the former MEP insisted “the need for this channel is absolutely enormous”.


Mr Farage explained: “Across mainstream broadcast media in this country, they virtually agree on everything.

“They ignore stories that should be talked about.”

He added: “They are propaganda machines for a centre-left agenda. Here it will be very, very different.” 


Mr Farage previewed his new show by telling viewers: “Since politics I have done a fair bit of broadcasting and broadcasting matters, it really, really does.

“It gets people to look at issues, think about issues in different ways and can be very influential.


“On YouTube I’ve had millions of people watching my videos and often I’ve covered stories that everybody else wants to ignore.”

However, GB News later suspended the presenter, with the station claiming that taking the knee was an “unacceptable breach of our standards”.


GB News chairman Andrew Neil has defended the station, tweeting yesterday: “Start ups are fraught and fractious. GB News is no exception.

“But the news channel is finding its feet and has a great future. Watch this space.”

It is hoped that Mr Farage’s arrival will help the channels reverse its plummeting ratings.
