Climate skeptic misrepresented by BBC?

No! Please! Say it ain't so! LOL!

When a hysterical media has no firm scientific (or even empirical) footing on which to stand anymore, all that's left for it to do is misrepresent the other side to continue spreading propaganda like a faithful cultist. More on Monckton here in a previous blog post.

BBC investigated after peer says climate change programme was 'one-sided polemic' | Mail Online:

The BBC is being investigated by television watchdogs after a leading climate change sceptic claimed his views were deliberately misrepresented.

Lord Monckton, a former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, says he was made to look like a ‘potty peer’ on a TV programme that ‘was a one-sided polemic for the new religion of global warming’.

Earth: The Climate Wars, which was broadcast on BBC 2, was billed as a definitive guide to the history of global warming, including arguments for and against.

During the series, Dr Iain Stewart, a geologist, interviewed leading climate change sceptics, including Lord Monckton. But the peer complained to Ofcom that the broadcast had been unfairly edited.
