Ofcom has found that an interview with Chancellor Jeremy Hunt on GB News breached impartiality rules.
The segment in question was hosted by presenters Esther McVey, the Tory MP for Tatton, and Shipley MP Philip Davies, ahead of the spring budget.
The watchdog said: “Given this programme featured two sitting MP presenters from one political party interviewing the Chancellor of the same political party about a matter of major political controversy and current public policy, we consider, in these circumstances, that GB News should have taken additional steps to ensure that due impartiality was preserved.
A spokesperson for Ofcom added: “Our investigation therefore concluded that GB News failed to represent and give due weight to an appropriately wide range of significant views on a matter of major political controversy and current public policy within this programme, in breach of (the) rules.”
