Here’s a Friday morning round up from Biased BBC’s Alan….
“Hunt…..Was it the BBC’s own DG who signed a letter demanding the BSkyB bid didn’t go through and who made numerous speeches to that effect….as well as having his journalists smear news International….including the Panorama programme on ITV Digital’s failure?
Scottish independence……listened to the news….only voice I heard was the SNP given a long snippet to themselves.
And then there is this classic of the Dark Art talking about the new Dark Age of Right wing climate scepticism……
If you were looking for an example of the BBC’s pure outright prejudice towards climate change sceptics you could do no better than to have listened to the Today programmes ‘report’ on what is the ‘new age of unreason’ in which the denigration of science…‘in particular climate change science’….is leading us into a new anti-rationalist Dark Age.
Fewer people believe in climate change each year…..the interviewee claimed…‘What a tragedy…..I am scared to death.’
This is apparently a militant rejection of the best available science….and it is naturally identified with the rise of the ‘Right’, the Republicans in America.
In the UK people just do not appreciate the vital role science plays in evidence based policy making…..we need a mission to win over the sceptics…..they just don’t understand the science.
This ‘report’ had three interviewees who were ‘for’ this ‘mission’ and who all agreed the ignorant and prejudiced Right needed to be silenced….and then there was Evan Davis and the reporter himself, Tom Feilden…..all agreeing with the premise.
No counter argument at all. The science is settled even if you don’t understand it you muttering idiots of the Right!
