Supporters of Jeremy Corbyn are crowdfunding to create new video output to counteract Andrew Neil's new GB News television service.

Left-wing grassroots campaign group Momentum is currently appealing for financial support ahead of new television services from GB News and Rupert Murdoch's News UK service - both due to launch in the spring.

In an email to supporters, they said: "The right are investing millions in setting up a new British Fox News.

"But we're fighting back.

"Together, we've raised £5,000 to fund our video operation - and that money is already having a huge impact on Facebook."

"We have the answers- all we need to do is get them our there."

The email claims that it will expand its video operations to "combat the right-wing media" and "drown out the right-wing press".

GB News aims to serve the “vast number of British people who feel underserved and unheard” by existing broadcasters.

It has already raised £60 million in fundraising with directors hoping Nick Ferrari and Julia Hartley-Brewer will become presenters.

GB News announced its first signing would be Dan Wooton from talkRADIO.
