Of course, angry people are well known for using "cognitive dissonance" in sentences.

If you don't understand what it means, then that only reveals your cognitive levels, unfortunately.

That only makes it even sillier that people boycotted because of his stance, and yet more silliness that the channel called it unacceptable. GB news viewers using boycotting and cancel culture to dictate what GUESTS are “allowed” to be on “their special channel”. The hypocrisy is staggering.

What do you mean to get on the news. He was already on the news… right?

Or did you mean the proper news

He knew it could cause
trouble.
But as an Outsider
he would not care as much.

Why would it cause trouble? GB News doesn’t cater to a specific political audience, it’s just about free speech and freedom of expression… isn’t it?

[GB News presenter Guto Harri has been condemned
by bosses after taking the knee live on television
Mr Harri made the anti-racist gesture on air while
talking about racist abuse England footballers suffered
GB News publicly rebuked its presenter Mr Harri for
his alleged 'unacceptable breach of standards'
But the ex-BBC political correspondent defended
his actions on Twitter last night, calling it 'free speech']

"Business editor Liam Halligan and former Labour MP Gloria De Piero attracted no measurable audience to their show between 1pm and 1.30pm on Wednesday afternoon. During the same timeslot the BBC News channel attracted 62,000 viewers, while Sky News had 50,000 people watching."


No boycott, just bored viewers imo.
