On this last bit, different shows seem to have different balances of report / opinion but they're clear throughout about what they are.
They were clear from the offset that they were not going to just be a rolling news channel - anyone with that assumption likely has not watched it / has only assumed that because of the comparisons to other channels.
Snow and KGM are blatantly left leaning in their reporting but often masquerade as neutral - when presenters (who are clear that they aren't simply news readers) GB news makes clear that they have their own biases but seem to do a good job at the moment of actively challenging them as well which makes for some really fantastic debate.
Again though - watch and make your own mind up if you want to keep watching - always good to have options. The social media freak out that this is some alt right project that needs cancelling is far from the truth however
A look at the scheduling would show they are not exactly being as balanced as they claim. Nearly all are heavily right leaning, a fair few Brexit supporting with no obvious left leaning or Brexit opposing candidates during primetime hours. The schedule is very clearly right wing, the styling is based on Fox news and the branding itself is as a reactionary channel to "the media" and left wing censorship, both right wing talking points. Unfortunately I think people have forgotten what unbiased means, it does not mean presenting both sides as equal, nor does presenting the opposite of what you have branded biased news make you unbiased.
