BBC Issues New Guidelines To Shut Down Debate On Climate Change

So this is what impartiality looks like at the BBC. They decide what your opinion should be and suppress or attack any other viewpoints. Pathetic.

Carbon Brief has obtained details of new BBC guidance on how to handle climate issues:


The BBC, one of the world’s largest and most respected news organisations, has issued formal guidance to its journalists on how to report climate change.

    As the world heads towards a colder climate the cAGW advocates are panicking and attempting to enforce dumb rules to keep their fantasy save. There’s too much money, prestige and reputation at stake for the la-la-land luvy fantasists of the BBC.

    Winters are starting to get colder and more extended, this coming winter probably will be snowy, 2020 is likely to be one of the coldest of recent years. By then hopefully people will start removing this unscientific CO2 chaff of climatism from their thoughts, and start to think about reality.

    Long gone are the days of the BBC reporting stupid scare tactics like “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” from Dr David Viner — they must have meant children, like their parents, would become extremely dumb and easily lead.

    In a nutshell…
    With climate bias thus instructed from on high the Corp has carte blanche to ignore sceptical scientists, fiddle their headlines and peddle science porn from as many vested-interest environmental ideologues as they can find. Which they are doing with impunity.

    Uh huh. That’s why I never go there for news, or entertainment, or anything. Because respect is a chimera.

  5. oldbrew says:

    Unfortunately they are abusing their position as a prominent news outlet to peddle opinion-laden climate stories which claim as factual an assortment of assumptions, projections, theories and so forth.

    They also – let’s say ‘arguably’ – violate their own charter by ignoring objections to all this.

    The Beeb is on a roll with their current crop of management. First they hopped on the AGW bandwagon (whose wheels fell off) then they buggered up Dr. Who with all sorts of rainbow psychotics and misfits. I’ve seen some of the producers and writers. It’s a dog’s breakfast of mental cases so this, “You’ll have AGW or nothing!” nonsense is not the least surprising as they double down on politically correct memes.

    Anyone for streaming TV instead of steaming excrement?

    Own goal – BBC guidelines fake news howler…

    Amazing. The BBC can’t even get the most basic facts right in its official climate change guidelines. Its new guidelines on reporting climate change state:

    To achieve impartiality, you do not need to include outright deniers of climate change in BBC coverage, in the same way you would not have someone denying that Manchester United won 2-0 last Saturday. The referee has spoken.”

    Actually we do deny this claim. And so should the BBC.

    Manchester United did not beat Burnley FC 2-0 last Saturday. The match was played last Sunday. The BBC must have spoken to the wrong referee.

    It would appear the BBC guidelines are as callow and ill-advised as much of it reporting on climate and climate policy.
