It'll be much easier to take in all of the state-sponsored transphobia when it's conveniently combined into one channel.

I watch BBC World News in the US. It's on Xfinity, but I'm sure it's on other providers too.

The "selection process" was particularly demeaning. If they wanted a job, they had to audition, in a studio from the 70s by the sound of it. Cramped, archaic autocue etc. I'm not surprised that folks like Joanna Gosling, David Eades and Tim Willcox said "Fark this, I'm out."
