BBC Bias (Again)

I saw a small bit of a thing on BBC News this morning. OK, this is from memory and I didn’t watch the whole thing because I would have been sedated to prevent me from hurling the cat at the Samsung. And neither Timmy nor the telly deserve that…

I would though chuck an irate ocelot at Harriet Harman’s minge. That is another story though…

It was about “The Rise of Climate Scepticism in Australia”. It described climate sceptics (they’d burn ‘em if that weren’t “polluting”) meetings as being like an “American religious revivalist meetings” (that’s so BBC on so many levels, that’s the sort of thing to get the average Indy reader priapic) and it was just generally horrendous. Despite my inchoate rage I did though clock something which outraged me beyond feline-throwing comprehension.

It opened with a shot of the cracked, dry Australian Desert. You know that thing that Australia has a lot of but also had a lot of when Captain Cook made landfall and even had a lot of during the Dreamtime of the Aboriginals with this soundtrack:

Yup, whilst the BBC now calls us “sceptics” and no longer “deniers” it plays music from a symphony written specifically about the Holocaust.

Where do you think that band is performing? Don’t look much like the Royal Albert Hall to me unless that gaff has really gone downhill very recently.

So the likes of me, PA and Cats wanna disagree with the “consensus” on a scientific issue and we’re ushered to the “naughty-corner” along with that cunt Nick Griffin. Well, some of us, Aunty Beeb actually not only can parse the science but will not fall for cheap tricks like that. Some of us know what an adiabatic lapse rate is and some of us have also been to Auschwitz. Some of us even listen to C20th orchestral music.

Some of us also know what pride comes before.

PS. Fellow bloggers. Take this. I want it known. I want it screamed from the highest parapets.


  1. Pathetic of the BBC. I guess when your ship is sinking, for an ecostatist, anything goes. I’ll be very pleased to post this one up on my blog tomorrow.

    Pop over to Samizdata folks. The top thread there is roughly the same subject.
    Brian picked it up from Bishop Hill. It’s a bunch of MSM so called climate journos discussing their approach to the Climategate story.
    Some of their comments are really outrageous.
    You wonder how qualified they are to talk about the subject. Some seem to have wandered into the Climate zone from the Religious Affairs department!

    What have you got against ocelots you rotten sod? Man-up and use a salt-water croc, they don’t give a monkey’s where they end up…

    OK Mac. Anyone know the required dosage of PCP to truly enrage a crocodile?

    Or I could just stick Alexander the car insurance Meerkat up her arse. Two birds, one stone. He shoots, he scores!

    Add that fat cunt from ‘Go Compare’ in full flight and I think we have a winning formula.

    Deeply satisfying – *rises to bow*

    Oh for fuck’s sake! you just cant make it up can you?

    I have just this minute been watching BBC News Channel. There was a story about the hard time Phil Jones ex Head of the CRU has been getting from a Parliamentary Committee for refusingto give out his data and trying to cover up inconvenient cooling figures.
    The dialogue and clips was fairly straightforward. How could it be otherwise, but the conversation between the presenter and the BBCs Environment Correspondent, Roger Harrabin, had big screen displays of guess what in the background?

    Yep collapsing Glaciers, melting icebergs and distressed Polar bears!

    Atta boy BBC! that’s the sort of balance we pay our Licence fee for!

  7. This article that I posted on my blog proved quite popular in terms of pages served. It was listed on an aggregator ( Saved me writing my own too. Thanks.

    Phil Jones makes me want to burn my degree certificates.

    Everyone who knows any math will know Tartaglia’s formula for the roots of cubics. Tartaglia hal-inched it from Fibonacci or Cardano (I forget at the mo) or one of those cats.

    That’s the way science & math was back then. It hasn’t been like that for centuries.

    Where the fuck is Phil Jones keeping his numbers. In attic with Miss Faversham or in the basement with the cask of Amontillado?

    Oh, and if he is feeling suicidal then that is because he is ashamed as he should be. Science is the keys to the universe. It’s a serious business and a responsibility.

    The BBC are lower than shit.

  10. [...] I saw hwile over at Obnoxio the Clown’s place that these people, called Counting cats, would like this to be shared. [...]

    The BBC is part of the liberal elite and will continue to dictate to us rather than just bring us the news. Check for more info..
