Former tabloid editor Morgan has left ITV after storming the set of Good Morning Britain when he said he didn’t believe Meghan’s claims from her Oprah Winfrey interview. His comments prompted more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history.

“I thought the whole thing was just a farce and I’m glad that actually as a result of the farce we ended up with an entire network now dedicated to preventing that kind of farce from happening again. acting,” said Morgan.

“You shouldn’t be shamed, defamed, or dismissed for having an opinion, unless you’re really spouting obnoxiously obnoxious stuff,” he added, in an interview with Metro.co. .uk.

“I’m not going to do that; I’ve never done that before in my airtime. I want to be a church that is open to any kind of perspective. ”

TalkTV, News UK’s latest venture, will broadcast on linear TV platforms as well as streaming services such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and YouTube.

The program will use News UK reporters including The Times political team, The Sun showbiz desk and talkSPORT reporters.

The show will be broadcast on Fox Nation in the US and Sky News Australia.
