I respect Farage for his anti-conformist views and he makes good entertainment but the problem is he is just another politician that could not give a shit about anyone apart from themselves and boosting their own career and profits at the expense of anyone else or cause he latches onto. I don't think Farage will attract a wide enough audience for them to survive. He will only attract the likes of so called conspiraloons and anti establishment types which I have no issue with but they are the minority. He's a bit like a cross between David Icke and Alex Jones in that respect. He fights a political cause like David Icke with the mouth of Alex Jones. Maybe folk will turn to it for entertainment purposes and no seriousness.
They should have got that posh couple of alcoholic hoteliers on there from Goglebox. A kind of Richard and Judy scenario. The only good thing Farage has done is help push Brexit through but even that was more a selfish move to boost his profile and getting his face on TV more, a cause he latched onto. Then again all we have done is exchange one bunch of fuckwits for another bunch of fuckwits so there maybe no real benefit there either. We shall have to wait a few more years yet to see if that move was beneficial or not. A change is as good as a rest though. I can't ever see this news programme ever going mainstream or taken serious to be honest.
Folk would be more happy to turn to YouTube for their news and get various opinions from various sources especially those that are on the ground, members of the public with a mobile phone and something to say at the scene of incidents or working where something is happening and experts that are allowed to express their true opinion. Real people instead of Actors, Celebs, Politicians and those with a regulated script. Combine YouTube with Twitter and other social media platforms then News on the TV on any channel does not really have a future. Nobody can believe what that they are told by the news on TV as it's too biased because of the control and regulations. Just look at the BBC, the same with ITV all biased. Even UK parliament are turning more to Social media to get their message out. Whatever is spoken about in their TV press release is always leaked first on Twitter. It's probably why the world is so fucked up and nobody can agree on anything because there is so much mixed messaging and makes deciphering reality and truth more difficult.
Lets face it all us older types will be dead soon and the majority now are of a younger generation born into the tech and a mobile phone and socials in their hand so what future has TV got.
