BBC In Cahoots With Climategate


Note: IThe BBC should be shut down. All its staff should be sacked. All its pensions funds should be sequestrated and applied to paying off the national debt. All its copyrights should be disclaimed. All its paper archives should be shredded. SIG 

“Britain’s leading green activist research centre spent £15,000 on seminars for top BBC executives  in an apparent bid to block climate change sceptics from the airwaves, a vast new cache of leaked ‘Climategate’ emails has revealed. The emails – part of a trove of more than 5,200 messages that appear to have been stolen from computers at the University of East Anglia – shed light for the first time on an incestuous web of interlocking relationships between BBC journalists and the university’s scientists, which goes back more than a decade. They show that University staff vetted BBC scripts, used their contacts at the Corporation to stop sceptics being interviewed and were consulted about how the broadcaster should alter its programme output. BBC insiders say the close links between the Corporation and the UEA’s two climate science departments, the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Research, have had a significant impact on its coverage.” – David Rose, Mail on Sunday, 27 November 2011

    I dabble on the BBC’s message boards, and every thread or post I have entered that questions the BBC’s attitudes to AGW is very quickly “moderated” (i.e. censored).

    It makes me very suspicious, and very, very annoyed.

    Really RR? Have you got screenshots to prove this? Would be most interested to see and repost. Thanks,

  3. Yes me too James and the Biased BBC would like to know too I bet! Trying to pluck up the courage to go on there and try it for myself… think I’ll have a strong coffee first!
