BBC Climate Change Guidelines Get It Wrong

Amazing. The BBC can’t even get the most basic facts right in its official climate change guidelines.

Its new guidelines on reporting climate change state:

To achieve impartiality, you do not need to include outright deniers of climate change in BBC coverage, in the same way you would not have someone denying that Manchester United won 2-0 last Saturday. The referee has spoken.”

Actually we do deny this claim. And so should the BBC.

Manchester United did not beat Burnley FC 2-0 last Saturday. The match was played last Sunday. The BBC must have spoken to the wrong referee.

It would appear the BBC guidelines are as callow and ill-advised as much of it reporting on climate and climate policy.
