Gay people are not a political issue, if you don't like it, look away.

Again Ch4HDnews
is outstanding
they even joined(Partnered) with SkyNewsHD
in the 2010 Election debates.

It is wrong while doing the news
to have Political Colours on the number 4

Surely even if it was a political statement being made in the logo, which I dismiss totally myself, just my view.
So what.

As for the criticism of the programme It's A Sin on C4 last night.
Well that's dealing with a very serious issue of that period.
I think it was presented, acted and informed in a really strong way all the aspects of the period in both a humerous and serious way.

I can't see why the logo and this seemingly strong and good new series, can be seen as making a political statement and especially wrongly too.

How REALLY is it a political statement however by using all the colours of, what are main colours anyway, which political Parties have.
At least all together in one place indicates impartiality completely with no colour more evident than any other.

Just my view but there it is.

I thought it was cos the colours are the same as the main UK parties

Arista can you clarify if youíre a homophobe or just a bit nuts

I actually think the reason for using the old logo, if (as I gather - I don't actually know about the show in question) it's for this show "It's A Sin" which I've read is set against the AIDS crisis, is probably all three;

- The logo from the 80's

- Party political colours

- Pride flag


...I just don't think any of those things are a problem at all. It's just some clever advertising for a show?

OK but the secondary question is... what's the problem with that, and why is it making you angry?

Because
Ch4HDnews is Impartial
thats how they managed to merge with SkyNewsHD
in 2010 UK Elections.


I backed all that.

I read this as well, and it sounds the most convincing of all the arguments

How is this politically impartial? Unless you believe that the pride flag aspect is politically partisan?

And anyway... have they even made any sort of statement about it, other than it just ... being there? Because I think it's just promo for a show and ... it's a commercial channel, so they're going to do promo in their branding. It's literally no different to Ch5 doing that thing where they "briefly flashed the Big Brother eye" on screen between ads during the run up to BB seasons. The logo is superimposed by the channel before broadcast, it's not a news anchor holding up a piece of paper.

They were used to promote a show that has sociopolitical elements but I fail to see how they're any sort of political banner in and of themself. I can only ASSUME that you're falling into the false narrative that the pride flag and left-wing politics are in some way intrinsically linked, when they are not.

No Not at all
As a News Programme
they need to stay away from any Political Color.



MP's get angry at this
as well as me.
