BBC – standards of journalism

A Guest post from Joe Public.

“Auntie” BBC invested a fortune in wining & dining 28 so-called ‘climate experts’ to teach staff how to spread ‘Global Warming’ propaganda.

One suggestion from that seminar was to get journalists to report stories with a consistent “Global Warming / Climate Change is happening’ theme. This could be achieved by either “not asking the right questions”, or, “not reporting ‘the wrong’ answers”. How else can they explain that when supermarket giant Tesco announce plans to shut a warehouse employing 800 staff, the Beeb meekly report it because (Tesco) want to “…… to provide a better service for our customers and reduce carbon emissions across our transport network.”

Tesco Warehouse Closure Biased BBC

Did Tesco mention one (prime?) reason was to reduce costs; or, did the BBC fail to ask if cost-savings influenced their decision?

  1. Not just the BBC but Sky report the same cut and paste job. Interestingly I note that they’re opening two new depots according to this report: http://www.heart.co.uk/essex/news/local/harlow-800-job-losses-tesco-distribution-centre/
    In this report they reckon they’re going to create 2000 new jobs. Odd story this one.
    You are correct. Most presenters and interlocutors, except for the most excellent Andrew Neil, come from the “Is there anything more you would like to say Minister?” schools of journalism especially where climate change is concerned.

  2. Perhaps it’s a rationalisation program; cutting transport costs so they can improve the quality of the horsemeat they offer?

  3. They also seem to have conveniently forgotten that they’re reopening their depot in Bletchley and closing the one on Daventry. That’s the one they closed originally to move Daventry.

    They seem to be doing the hokey-cokey. “You start a new one up. You shut the old one down. Then start the old one up again and shut the new one down….”

    Give it a couple of years and they likely open Harlow up again!

  4. I’ve noticed this a lot with the BBC, slipping climate change into news reports and worse usually very good nature/natural world documentaries. Recently, the final Africa was ruined by a climate change rant by Attenborough (who should know better) – some dodgy ‘facts’ spouted. Unfortunately, people still trust the BBC. Eco-loons roam far and wide; once a source of distant mocking at University freshers week stalls, they now infest the public and charity sector – the nuRighteous.

    Of course, ignorant MPs continue to spout this drivel too – parrot fashion. My MP at it recently. Never questioned on their beliefs – or why they hold such views.

    • Mentioning the words ‘Climate change’ always brings me out in hives, hence, no TV or any other news medium apart from my laptop.

      • I fully agree, gentlemen. But ITN’s no better. BBC and ITV/ITN/C4/C5 news is rather like a Big Mac with everything between the two buns removed – all bar a small sliver of limp and wilting lettuce. Totally devoid of anything worth knowing. Thank God for Russia Today!!!

  5. The BBC deserves to get the grandfather of all comeuppances for its part in the AGW scam. A savage twist of irony might see it razed to the ground by the biggest shit storm of all time. Or drowned by a rising tide of boiled piss.

    One lives in hope to see the day…
