Adding Insults to Injury

Programming note: Friday's Clubland Q&A live around the planet will be at a slightly earlier hour this week: 3pm North American Eastern - that's 7pm GMT/8pm British Summer Time.

Thank you again for dialing up The Mark Steyn Show every night. Wednesday's show decisively beat Piers Morgan Uncensored, for which Mr Murdoch is paying what is surely the highest cost per viewer in the history of television. We're also doing great on radio, as is GB News, which is one of the few UK stations to be increasing audience share at the moment - and the Steyn Show has the second highest share, which is very gratifying.

Thursday's Mark Steyn Show began with Mark bemoaning the triviality of the current Tory leadership debates. Laura Perrins joined him to expand on the point, after which Sue Cook joined him to assess the strange inability to connect the dots between lockdown and the present catastrophe.

Steyn then had some sport with a couple of media-ethics and fact-check poseurs before inviting Mark Tomlin and his daughter Leanne to discuss how shabbily their bereavement is treated by the sickos of the groupthink media.

To round out the hour, songwriter Gary Osborne joined Steyn to relive his finest hour - or finest three seconds. (You can hear more from Gary and Mark here.) All that plus your comments live as it happens. Click below to view the full show:

If you've missed a Mark Steyn Show in recent weeks or recent years, you can find all our shows from the year to date and many highlights from the archives in a handy Netflix-style tile format here. Make the most of them while you can because, as Mark mentions every other night, he's now under investigation from Ofcom. And, as he has also mentioned, you're not meant to mention that you're under investigation from Ofcom.
