One cannot help but be amused at the coincidence of the BBC transmitting its Horizon Programme, as an ill-concealed (and poorly constructed) defence of warmist orthodoxy, at the same time Peter Sissons is serialising his book in The Daily Mail, today arguing that the BBC has become a "propaganda machine for climate change".

"The Guardianistas and Independenistas are talking to themselves."

They're obviously not listening to themselves…otherwise they wouldn't spew out so much drivel

Mind you, it's probably the only thing they can spew out.

Horizon used to be an informative program (about 20 years ago), then they had topics which, I found it generally educational, nowadays it has dumbed itself down like much of the BBC, you only have to watch Top gear to see that.
Your point about newspaper circulation is well made, the Mail may well seek sensation and pander to the middle class over 40's but they are a group increasing in number, and paying the public sectors wages, it's time the rest of the media and the government took notice.

Excellent article.
This is hitting a real nerve. Getting public awareness (despite the huge PR from TV ....baited breath as the newsreader gets the pundit to review the front page of...The Guardian and ....The Independent) that the Guardian has very few real purchasers, few real readers and is collapsing....and The Indie has collapsed but kept alive by a billionaire subsidising it.
When they realise there are more people in Wolverhampton than read The Guardian, then you get the picture.
Cut off the BBC, quango, University Department, public sector union, activist political charity purchases AND their advertising and it is finished in 7 days.

If bloggers can get The BBC or The Guardian to address its lack of readers, and their mystery disappearence each week, then this can be a decisive blow.

Hmm, that's bated breath as in noise abatement. I always think criticism is more courteous with a correct version, and a mnemonic helps.

The best part of the Sissons' article was the run in with the communist St Caroline Lucas.

Horizon's influence has declined dramatically from the first time I saw it in 1971/72 when in started the save the whale campaign. Last night's programme was poor and frankly boring. You would have expected a biologist to be a little more even handed when it came to investigating a branch of science which he was not an expert in, but as the science is already settled, it is not surprising that he took all the global warming at face value.

Dellers came over better than his blog suggested.

I stand suitably reproved, Sandy, & my apologies to the miscreant.
If you can think of a better mnemonic in this case than 'mackerel heads'... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Horizon?
Used to be popular science, now it's unpopular non-science (with music).
One small (mis)step for the BBC, one giant leap for mankind.

I was tempted to sneak in and amend your "leap", turning it into "weep".

Don't let the Guarbeebistas grind you down...

On an unrelated note (not) I see that Mr Peston, Socialist Hero of the BBC Labour Party, has been crying about the possibility of Sky being turned into a UK Fox News.
Everything now rests on the judgment of Mr Hunt, Socialist Hero of the SDP made flesh.
My money's on Mr Murdoch being allowed to go ahead, but the Communist Broadcasting Act being retained.

I hadn't realised until I read this blog post that Nurse is an alumnus of UEA.

In winning media battles for the hearts and minds of the masses (who do not have or find hours to research), it is vital to have trusted faces and voices on TV or near the frontpages of national papers.
A few words from them is worth thousands of hours blogging or warmist propoganda.
Sissons is trusted especially among people above 40.
We need to keep his core argument well publicised : the BBC is biased regarding climate change and credible people believe they are biased, but they get very nasty if these credible people speak out.
David Bellamy was a scientist on TV the public above a certain age trusted him. He has been axed from all TV and Radio because he would not go along with the global warming scam. But they offered him a fortune, so they knew they needed him and wish they had him singing warmist lies.
Drip-drip-drip- before long we will get a footballer or pop star or film star or Channel 4 presenter like Jameela Jamil tweet on twitter about it to the youth...and then we have won.
