GB News Save Cash Campaign

Following a complaint on GB News’ Don’t Kill Cash campaign, the media regulator Ofcom opened an investigation against the publication. The action, which comes after a number of other investigations into the broadcaster, was taken just days after GB News started a campaign to prevent the UK from becoming a “cashless society,” urging people to sign a petition and ask the government to pass legislation to ensure that cash will remain legal tender at least until 2050. Since it began on Monday, the campaign, which alleges that “strong vested interests” are pushing for electronic payments to replace cash because they “enable third parties to track you and your spending,” has gathered more than 160,000 signatures.

Those registering can choose to give GB News permission to send them marketing emails from the channel, which may include news alerts and advertisements from GB News and carefully chosen third parties. While political parties and campaigns are frequently supported by newspapers, UK broadcasters are not permitted to do so under the conditions of their Ofcom license. Ofcom stated on Friday that broadcasters were not allowed to convey “views and opinions […] on matters of political and industrial controversy or current public policy” as a result of its guidelines, which are supported by the Communications Act 2003.

Because GB News is willing to promote opinionated television news in a way that is more typical of the US, Ofcom is playing catch-up and seeking to enforce a broadcast code that was designed in an earlier period when the BBC and ITV reigned. The presenter and former Apprentice star Michelle Dewberry complained the channel was the target of an “advertising boycott” because “politically motivated online pressure groups have made it their life’s work to try to close us down” in a story published on the broadcaster’s website on Thursday with the headline: “Leftie activists hate GB News and they hate you.”
