The ‘Today’ news programme dealt with the talkshop revelations about the MET Offices new cooler decadal forecast in tones insufficiently reverent to the ears of high priestess of global warming, Julia Slingo, the BBC enviro-wonks have been working overtime to redress the problem. First, David Shukman deliberately mislead the public with his numbers only write-up on the sci-environment section, giving the impression 50 years worth of warming was going to happen in the next 5. Showing the graphs would have made it too easy for the public to see he was talking bollocks.
But the BBC was ignominiously obliged to correct the article a day later, and the ruse failed.
They then interviewed Julia Slingo on their ‘Feedback’ programme and let her explain how ‘Today’ had failed to stay ‘on message’. Then to ram it home, they used an old ploy. This consisted of offering some ‘listeners’ a chance to express their displeasure and accuse ‘Today’ of getting the story wrong.
But these weren’t just ordinary R4 listeners. No. They were pro AGW activists, one of whom, Hilary Gander, correctly declared herself as such when she rang the BBC to vent her spleen about the ‘Today’ report. But the BBC edited out hr self introduction to give other listeners the impression they were hearing the viewpoint of ‘an ordinary member of the public’.
Dressing activists in false flags is of course second nature to the BBC since the 2006 ’28gate’ event where they touted climate activists as ‘climate experts’ and subsequently spent 150k on lawyers to try to keep their real identities out of the public eye.
This is fraudulent, dishonest, and in breach of the BBC’s own charter on unbiased and open reporting. Not that they worry over-much about that when the cause of climate alarmism is at stake. Pravda is a paragon of unbiased reporting virtue in comparison these days. It certainly tells it like it is concerning ‘global warming’.
Head of news Helen Boaden has to go.
