The Mortimer Memo: Voters Say TV Presenters Accused of Misconduct Should be Suspended
Despite the Mail suspending his column, Dan Wootton continues to retain his weekday show on GB News. How much longer can the right-wing station keep ignoring the shocking allegations?
Dan Wootton popped up on GB News viewers’ screens again on Thursday night, seemingly oblivious to the calls for him to step down following Byline Times shocking revelations.
He’s got a new lawyer, apparently at half the cost of his previous £800 an hour Mishcon de Raya attack dogs. Perhaps he’s miffed that his crowdfunder to sue Byline Times has barely raised a quarter of its target.
