GB News show with Rishi Sunak broke broadcasting rules, Ofcom finds | UK News

GB News could face punishment after a programme with Rishi Sunak was found to have broken broadcasting rules.

Regulator Ofcom said it was “starting the process for consideration of a statutory sanction” after finding ‘People’s Forum: The Prime Minister’ breached impartiality guidelines.

GB News called it “an alarming development in its attempt to silence us” and said the programme was intended to allow the public to question politicians directly.

The hour-long show, which aired on 12 February, received 547 complaints and was “presented in the context of the forthcoming UK general election”, Ofcom said.

It said “due weight” should have been given to an “appropriately wide range of significant views” other than the Tories’ – either in the programme itself or “in other clearly linked and timely programmes”.
