This week marks four weeks since Dan Wootton was suspended from GB News – Britain’s self-declared free speech news broadcaster – for not being offended enough at a bad joke by Laurence Fox.
The mainstream media, led by the BBC, ITV News and Sky News, whipped this non-story up into total hysteria, designed to destroy the top-rated show on the broadcaster. They have succeeded in silencing Dan, who has become a voice for the silenced majority in Britain.
Carol Vorderman and other hard left activists allegedly encouraged people who had never watched the broadcast in question to make fake complaints to the government regulator Ofcom, which many feel is increasingly attempting to control and neuter GB News. It didn’t matter that Dan had provided balance to Laurence’s provocative comments and apologised for them as soon as the show ended.
In the month he has been off air, GB News’ ratings, especially at 9pm, have plummeted as viewers boycott the channel they had come to love.
We have lost Dan’s voice during one of the most important times in modern history, as the world teeters on the brink thanks to the Israel/Palestine war and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak marches the Conservative party towards electoral oblivion.
Meanwhile, the BBC, ITV and Sky News have brought shame on Britain with their biased, anti-Israel coverage of the conflict – including reporting fake news about the hospital bombing being the fault of Israel. Surely they should be the focus of Ofcom, not Dan for not being offended enough by a bad joke?
Antisemites are openly campaigning for Jihad on Britain’s streets, while Dan remains muzzled. He apologised sincerely and accepted he should have reacted, but it is now essential that GB News accepts that apology and reinstates Dan Wootton.
His voice is so important at such a perilous time for democracy. He was the first show on GB News and helped build it from the ground up and deserves better treatment.To make this point clear to management, please share your stories about why Dan Wootton Tonight needs to return to GB News.
