A BBC-Balanced View of Climate Change

Reading the news about the BBC's apology for its uncritical interview with Nigel Lawson with interest.

I've mentioned the unbalanced "balance" of BBC reporting before. And it always comes down to ignorance. The interviewers tend to be pretty good at politics. But rarely seem to be much cop at science or, for that matter, religion. The same must go for the researchers / producers as otherwise we would never get Christians represented by "Christian" Voice. I doubt he should be interviewed on climate change at all, given that the science is so overwhelming you might as well interview him on the phlogiston theory. But the right person to interview Nigel Lawson on climate change, if you must, is somebody who really knows what they are talking about.

Otherwise the BBC might as well give up on its mission to inform. And, for every contentious issue, just get Jeremy Kyle in.



Looking for  a Christmas present for the churchgoer in your life? Or are you in need of a book to make you laugh at and think about the church? Well you probably need "Writes of the Church  -  Gripes and Grumbles of People in the Pews" - a perfect stocking filler.  From Amazon, BRF and good Christian bookshops.
