I really have lost patience with Cathy Newman’s dress sense. The jumper tonight is the last straw 😮

Who is Cathy Newman please?

Marydoll Fri 18-Oct-19 20:31:46

Channel Four News presenter.

Never heard of Kathy Newman ???

Marydoll Fri 18-Oct-19 20:42:31

The lady in question.

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 20:44:47

The jumper in question

Marydoll Fri 18-Oct-19 20:46:10

Oh, I missed that one! I see what you mean, suziewoozie

SueDonim Fri 18-Oct-19 20:48:22

I have no idea who she is, either. confused

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 20:49:57

I’m amazed

DanniRae Fri 18-Oct-19 20:51:57

Never heard of her but, having seen her photo, I really don't like her jumper!

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 20:54:56

How come you’re not watching C4 news? I’m genuinely surprised. What news do people watch?

MissAdventure Fri 18-Oct-19 20:57:06

Oh, that was on my tv this evening and I thought what a weird jumper it was.
My eyes are bad; it looked like a load of bacon and eggs to me.

Marydoll Fri 18-Oct-19 21:03:38

We watch C4 news in the evening.

Drum1234 Fri 18-Oct-19 21:04:52

Why are you amazed that some people don't watch the same news channel as you?

Namsnanny Fri 18-Oct-19 21:08:56

Don’t watch any news, in fact I actively avoid it!!
Her researchers are probably checking us as we speak/write to see if the jumper did it’s job of bringing her to the publics attention 😆!

BBC or ITV 10 o clock news unless I am walking Hattie.
Radio news, read newspapers - whatever.

I just thought people would watch a range - BBC, ITV, C4. However I now have to report that I’m in serious trouble with DH for being so shallow as to be affronted by CN’s jumper so as to post about it on GN. But honestly it’s been bubbling up for months. Don’t get me started on the blouses. Generally the dresses are just about acceptable.

Grammaretto Fri 18-Oct-19 22:02:11

I watch BBC because I can't stand the ads.

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 22:03:52

We hardly ever watch in real time so we can fast forward through the ads which mitigates it a bit

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 22:04:16

I like her hair though

SueDonim Fri 18-Oct-19 22:12:35

I never watch the news nowadays. I get it all online.

suziewoozie Fri 18-Oct-19 22:31:56

SueD how do you get it online? I pick up news viaFB and Twitter and follow links to news stories on TV, radio and newspapers that way and also have the BBC app which I’ll click on for a quick update but I do like a daily round up I suppose with both news and views and some reflection on the day’s events. I suppose the latter is partly habit. During the day I listen to bits of R4 Today and WATO and also LBC ( at least with radio I don’t get distracted by the damn jumpers😀)

SueDonim Fri 18-Oct-19 23:04:24

I look at the BBC news website and newspaper websites. That's enough for me!
