I am astonished at the lack of airtime given to the BBC’s 28Gate debacle. Once again Auntie has been caught peddling dubious information to the public and by the usual suspects – who have now ‘stepped aside’ for reasons other than pumping out biased reporting on Climate Science. What does it take to get the press interested in a story that contains accusations of media bias, waste of public funds and the gang of four caught up – yet again.
Come on Press Land give it some coverage. Where are you Sky News when we need you?
As they say ‘A week day is a long time in politics the blogosphere’. On Tuesday I predicted that the failure of a court action against the BBC brought under the freedom of information act, to reveal the names of the gang of 28 grandees of Global Warming knowledge would be a short lived victory for the publicly funded corporation. Later that same day the list was released on the web by Guido Fawkes of the blogspot www.order-order.com but full honours go to Mauritzio Morabito for his impressive sleuthing.
Should the list prove to be correct (we are awaiting the BBC’s confirmation/denial with baited breath) ‘Auntie’ is going to have to clear a space on her, albumen splattered visage for even more egg. If this is what the BBC call a seminar of experts then I’m a warmist!
I have looked through the list. Where is the balance? Where is the counter argument from the sceptic side? There is none. The outcome of the seminar was preordained. The BBC picked a group of biased global warming activists so that they could justify their future bias. Their subterfuge is astounding.
