The claims of bias are grossly overstated and the figure of 19:1 in reporting is easily met when you look at it with an unbiased eye;

The claim that Climategate was not reported by the BBC shows a total amnesia for what actually happened. It was extensively reported on in the BBC and especially on Newsnight.

http://www.bbc.co.uk...rammes/b01nl8gm

Newsnight is the flagship News program of the BBC and has repeatedly allowed Nigel Lawson to espouse openly climate scepticism to the public;





Maybe your real complaint is that they do not afford equal weight to the arguments of climate sceptics, and they do not offer a mouthpiece to Oil industry think-tanks peddling pseudoscience. As I said earlier that would really represent a gross bias in coverage.



This is just pathetic straw clutching exercise by people who have run out of arguments.

I never claimed the bbc never reported climategate, read what i said again.
the bbc ignored climategate WHEN it happened. it took them months to finally report on it, despite having been sent the emails.
it was a big news story across the blogs and other news outlets, but the bbc "news" organisation ignored it.

Wrong again, reporting from the time of Climate gate on the BBC;



You should stop reading all your information from biased sources.

The reality is that the BBC has been shown to be far from unbiased in its reporting of science with a tendency to give excessive weight to fringe scientific views such as MMR-autism and Climate skeptism;

From BBC Newsnight 21/11/09;
date says that show aired 23rd November. the story swept around the web on 19th November. newsnight is not prime time, it is broadcast close to midnight. bbc have a 24 hour news channel, prime time news broadcast and radio, they say 24 hours is a long time in a news cycle, but where was their reporting when the emails were released on the 19th. the newsnight clip however  is a perfect example of spin, they initially frame the scandal as a theft of emails, when they get to the content they frame it as,


"Mike's nature TRICK to hide the decline"
at the 1:20 mark in the video, see how their graphic and commentary misled the sleepy viewer.

when the real story was:
"Mike's nature trick to HIDE the decline"

where were their probing questions - what do you mean by hide? what were you hiding? should a scientist be hiding data? what does decline refer to? instrumental temperatures? a decline in tree proxy temperatures since 1960? but no, the bbc do a magicians sleight of hand.

I was reading those emails on the 19th nov when they were released, and i can tell you the bbc were late in reporting it, and when they did they were spinning it.

given that the bbc's climate expert advisory panel was full of advocates and activists, it is no wonder the public was misinformed and misdirected, but it's all, to quote Michael Mann,  "for the cause" isn't it.

The BBC claimed a consensus in 2006, by inviting 28 alarmist activists with a vested interest in AGW to shape the company climate policy and claimed them to be the "best scientific experts" in the field.

They then decided, on the advice of these activists to only show pro AGW view points on the BBC while investing heavily in green technology (an investment that backfired as noone took the bait).

When did the BBC decide that they should choose to manipulate global markets instead of providing unbiased news items?

I remember a BBC item (3-4 years back) which claimed that all asian glaciers will be gone by 2035. I am still waiting for a correction annoucement from the BBC.

The BBC has been like that since today Blair hand picked the board.

Its anti-Christain, pro-liberal, pro-socialist and pro-tree hugger. Its biased amd lies about anybody and anything that doesnt fit into its agenda. I even remember some presenters on it glorifying the London Riots.

Its time it got privitsed.

I personally think the media, BBC (Saville) and New Corp controversies are the Tories way of cleaning out the filth who are targeting the population with propaganda. He needs to wait to just before the next elections and then send the senior members of the Labour Party to the Hague for war crimes.
