Right Wing No Defenders of "Free Speech"

16/05/2022

It seems that white male crusaders for free speech, who regularly bemoan modern young people, LGBTQIA+ people and other minorities for taking umbrage at their views, are not so interested in free debate after all. The Independent Newspaper reports that Piers Morgan, who hosts a flagship discussion programme on the new right wing talk TV channel imaginatively titled “Talk TV” was busy on twitter claiming that his new show was gaining viewers at the expense of another right wing channel, “GB News” and from the more centrist “Sky News”. When experienced broadcaster Simon McCoy refuted this claim, citing many reports that “Talk TV” was underperforming, Morgan blocked him.  “I Can’t have been. He says he’s open to debate,” Mr McCoy wrote, sarcastically. Meanwhile, over at the Guardian, Aditya Chakrabortty remarked “Morgan often drones on about how much he values free speech and others’ opinions.”
