Channel 4 may have its broadcast license revoked...

...because it won’t facilitate the Conservative Party’s election shenanigans


“[A Cons Spokesman] accused Channel 4 of a “wider pattern of bias” after the cabinet minister Michael Gove turned up at the TV studio alongside the prime minister’s father, Stanley Johnson, but was not allowed to take Johnson’s place. The broadcaster said this was because the debate was only for party leaders.”

Accused of bias because they wouldn’t shift the rules of a debate to suit a bunch of compulsive liars - this doesn’t look good. Like the start of a dictatorship.

License not due for renewal until 2024, so probably won't be the next government involved.

Boris would have been better letting this die in a ditch. Just highlighting what a coward he is who doesn't like being scrutinised or held to account.
its a shit show, its distracting.... no one is reporting what anyone said during the debate on the climate, no one is really wondering what the tory policy might be on the environment. all people are talking about is that he sent his dad & gove, and they're now argueing with channel 4 as one giant distraction. the other leaders may as well stayed at home, sums up this election to be fair.
The bastards, fancy not letting Gove get his message across of how he's going to save the world.

Someone should have told Grove, he's not the leader of the Tories, he keeps losing the right to lead the party.

The fact is that CH4 is absolutely a left-wing biased channel and they are absolutely brazen in this. Had Boris appeared it would have been less of a political debate and more of a shit-slinging extravaganza, so they sent Michael gove who is well-known for his environmental concerns and could in fact have contributed more than Boris could to the "Climate Emergency" debate. However this did not suit CH4's agenda of slamming Boris so in a childish hissy fit CH4 barred Michael Gove and bought an iceblock instead as a way of pillorying Boris through the back door.

They are an awful channel anyway (think dross like Naked Attraction etc) and deserve to have their public funding removed.
Ofcom have rejected the call to censure C4
Shows you which way their sensibilities lie!

It was a leader's debate. Michael Gove failed in that aspect.

Is he? I never thought of him as someone who has environmental concerns, his voting record is great either.

C4 seem to have given up the pretence of being neutral now , the progressive left wing bias in all its output is blatant
