The ostensibly right-leaning Spectator magazine’s Chairman has admitted his platform is “pro-immigration” and “pro amnesty for illegal immigrants.” Andrew Neil is supposed to launch the Fox News-style “GB News” channel in the United Kingdom later this year.
Neil took offense when connected with the conservative, nationalist Hungarian government on Twitter. The 25-year BBC veteran, who has made a living off running a notionally conservative magazine, finally revealed his and his magazine’s true position.
Responding to someone pointing out that Neil and the Spectator had held an event with a Hungarian government-linked think tank, he responded:
“Some columnists might like Orban. I don’t. Nor does magazine’s editorial. It is generally pro-immigration, supports amnesty for illegal immigrants, UK entry for 3m Hong Kongers. You are shit-stirring I’ll stop there.”
Instead of embracing the most conservative, pro-family government in Europe, the Chairman of the 191-year-old Spectator magazine robustly distanced himself and his publication.
This, however, only after the Spectator had partnered with the Hungarian government to host an event in 2018. Such event are usually lucrative to media partners such as the Spectator.
The news will come as a blow to patriotic Britons who oppose the British Broadcasting Corporation for its far left-wing bent, also relying on the Spectator for conservative news and commentary while looking forward to the GB News television network.
GB News is believed to have sought funding from the Discovery Network, which itself promotes hard-left critical theory and has run propaganda on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party – as The National Pulse will reveal on Sunday.
Discovery is also believed to have secured an option to buy out the network after several years.
The Spectator also runs an American version of their magazine: The Spectator USA, which also falls under the remit of the company’s pro-immigration, pro-amnesty Chairman.
