The Mark Steyn Show
The Show Ofcom Won't Let You See | 16 March, 2023
~As many of you will know, last week I was found guilty by the UK media regulator Ofcom for breaking its "rules" way back in April 2022. GB News has decided not to appeal Ofcom's decision, but I am most certainly going to, in order to get the censorship arm of the British state before a real court and litigate its disastrous "chilling effect" on UK broadcasting these last three years. (There remains one outstanding Ofcom investigation of another Steyn Show from late last year, and that too will be appealed if necessary.) I will have more to say about this in the days ahead.
However, as I mention on tonight's show, GB News - presumably as part of its deal with Ofcom - has taken down the April 21st show. It happened, it was broadcast, but any permanent record of it has been vaporised: under Ofcom's Ministry of Truth, the past has to be scrubbed and memory-holed.
So we have something special for tonight's show, something that in the present censorship climate could not be seen on GB News or any other UK TV channel: the original offending broadcast, complete and unedited, but with an up-to-the-minute intro and outro by yours truly reflecting on Ofcom, its censorship, and the impending litigation.
