|ABC bias on Climate|
The result for the ABC's coverage of climate change showed an amazing 83% thought there is no bias in reporting.
The ABC has previously declared that they have a bias, declared that they had their own position on climate change (link)
But of course the ABC went against their [then] chairman Maurice Newman. Newman said that they should be even-handed on reporting of the global warming debate (link) but the ABC journalists should be called activists because they revolted and went against the ABC's charter and their chairman's wishes.
Mr Newman was criticised by Christopher Warren, the Federal Secretary of the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance in a letter the next day:
I was concerned to read yesterday the remarks made by ABC chairman, Maurice Newman, to a gathering of journalists, program-makers and management on Wednesday.
Since his speech I have been contacted by a number of Media Alliance members from the ABC’s news and current affairs team who have interpreted Mr Newman’s remarks as an attempt to influence the ABC’s line on climate change.Lord Monckton is currently touring NSW sponsored by the NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics in association with the Lord Monckton Foundation.
