We Need A Woodward & Bernstein – The Mail Leads, And Implicates The BBC In Collusion
At last, finally, some elements of the British mainstream media are waking up to the evidence and starting to question the data and the premise for Copenhagen.
This is the report in todays Mail:
However, over at the Beeb, Richard still bangs on about Copenhagen. At least now the Daily Mail has woken up to the reason for the BBC bias:
“For example, last year the BBC environment reporter Roger Harrabin made substantial changes to an article on the corporation website that asked why global warming seemed to have stalled since 1998 – caving in to direct pressure from a climate change activist, Jo Abbess.
‘Personally, I think it is highly irresponsible to play into the hands of the sceptics who continually promote the idea that “global warming finished in 1998” when that is so patently not true,’ she told him in an email.
After a brief exchange, he complied and sent a final note: ‘Have a look in ten minutes and tell me you are happier. We have changed headline and more.’
Afterwards, Abbess boasted on her website: ‘Climate Changers, Remember to challenge any piece of media that seems like it’s been subject to spin or scepticism. Here’s my go for today. The BBC actually changed an article I requested a correction for.’”
It is now looking increasingly like the BBC environment team is well and truly on the gravy train, and can not be relied on to be impartial or objective in their reporting. Shameful. My complaint is already on its way.
