Naman Ramachandran U.K. media regulator Ofcom’s broadcast standards investigation into GB News has found the channel to be in breach of its impartiality rules.

The issue of politicians who also serve as newsreaders being in potential breach of Ofcom’s impartiality rules has cropped up in recent months.

In April, Ofcom launched an investigation into GB News over an interview given by chancellor of the exchequer Jeremy Hunt to Esther McVey and Philip Davies on March 11 on the “Saturday Morning with Esther and Philip” news program about the upcoming budget.

All three politicians are members of parliament representing the ruling Conservative party. Ofcom received 45 complaints from viewers who raised concerns that the program had failed to preserve due impartiality.
