The climate scaremongers: BBC Verify should investigate the BBC malterwitty Fri, 06/02/2023 - 15:27
Roger Harrabin, the BBC’s former Energy and Environment Analyst, let the cat out of the bag last year when he tweeted that the BBC has long been trying to ‘knit climate change into the fabric of the daily news’. In other words, try to link every bit of bad weather, famine or other disaster to global warming, in the most surreptitious way possible. Little wonder that only 44 per cent of Brits trust the BBC’s journalists to be truthful. The above examples are only the tip of the iceberg.

The Thursday Twitter debut of conservative commentator Matt Walsh's film "What Is a Woman?" was hamstrung by apparent censorship efforts. Although Elon Musk indicated these censorial efforts were a mistake made "by many people at Twitter," it was a collective mistake not quickly remedied as the Daily Wire crew continued to observe limited reach and "hateful conduct" labels well into the night.

The crowd at the Fox News Thursday night town hall featuring President Donald Trump wasn’t having it when host Sean Hannity asked him about the idea that he should “tone it down” when appealing to moderate voters.

Boos erupted before Hannity could finish his question, causing him to ask the audience to “leave me alone.”
