The awakened culture controls television, claims Eamonn

Eamonn – who regularly presents with his wife, Ruth Langsford – also claimed that the culture controls the stations because of the advertising revenue.

He added that “they” are “very influential” and broadcasters “jump” when advertisers are “upset”.

The Irish star also said he admires Piers Morgan for opposing snowflake culture.

He added, “I think we need to get him up to wake up. I’m not saying I agree with everything he says, but I think everyone just turns around. “
