I found this interesting;

Helen “Impartiality” Boaden has beenawarded honorary doctorates by the University of East Anglia. Isn’t that where the CRU emails came from…isn’t that one of the BBCenvironmental journalist’s favourite source of information?  Just why did the likes of Black and Harrabin and Fielding go to such lengths todefend Prof. Phil Jones at the UEA?

      I really like the first public comment on the Telegraph article saying the BBC is the British Leyland of the media!
      A rotten organisation that needs some serious sorting out. I am still very happy I removed the tuner from the TV and don’t pay my licence for this company for which the majority of its output is average at best and garbage at worst, but its unfair advantage stifles other organisations from improving UK TV and media in general.

      They don’t think anyone will care.  By and large, they’re right.

    Speaking of the d..ude himself, he’s back:

    And he has found another report.

    As others better qualified start to ask questions, I wonder how long this one will stay open?

      Blimey, Richard responded on his blog (he, or one of his interns, must actually read the comment thread).  Mind you the response was to a sychophant who was concerned that Richard’s golden prose would be lost in the reorganisation of the BBC website.  Thank God – or Gaia – that “Earth Watch” is safe: I wonder what stuff will disappear!  I notice that Richard has not responded (does he ever?) to a couple of low-key, reasoned sceptical comments.

        Oh, larks… like the vultures who attempt to exist in slim pickings hereabouts, by doing so only to this he rather highlights all the other times he knows the narrative is well and truly stalled.

    Climategate ran for over a month before the BBC picked the story up, they did this only after fully consulting the fraudsters at the UEA CRU presumably to cobble together some kind of allibi sob story bag of excuses.

    I wonder just what goes through the mind of Boaden when she accepts payoff bribes from those corrupt fraudsters her supposedly impartial BBC gave massive and detailed support to during climategate.

    Its kick back city Arizona here at the BBC, its you scratch my back and we will give you a couple of worthless faked up doctorates.
    Nothing fishy here right? The CRU UEA fruadsters just thought Boaden was a jolly nice person, nothing to do with all the massive support given to the UEA CRU crooks.

    I tell you what, these scum bags are either too retarded to see just how unsuitable these payoffs are OR they are so arrogant they really dont give a sh*t what this bribefest looks like.

    The UEA are giving out honorary doctorates in crooked sleaziness and eyewatering dishonesty. I long for the day when these smug gits get taken down a peg or three, I can just picture the day when the reality of what they have been upto can no longer be hidden.

    I would like to make a few dozen copies of a fake honorary doctorate from the ‘university of crooked sleazeballs’ for services rendered to sleaziness in public lice and send them off to the relevant scumbags. Just to let them know that we know eh 😀 .

    With so much of the global population now disbelieving everything these scaremongers dream up about alleged man-made climate change, I don’t know why they bother to keep the charade going.  It’s certainly doing them no favours – they are in the mire enough already, without clinging to the wreckage which used to be AGW.


    • John Horne Tooke says:

      They have certainly blackened the name of science. A once great discipline which put a man on the moon has now resorted to meaningless playstation modelling.

      Climatology must now be on par with Astrology. Thank you BBC

    I’m prepared to offer up my services as Mystic John.

    “You will meet a dark stranger from a far away place known as the University of East Anglia. She will take you on a voyage of enlightenment ending up in the green room at Broadcasting House.
    Your passion and lust for her every word whilst admiring her heaving breasts will negate your true feelings, even though she’s talking utter crap.”
    “You will then happily offer up yourself as someone who is prepared to pay twice the going rate for the licence fee and accept that the BBC were right all along about global warming and that the Americans never landed anywhere near the moon.”

    Alas, the BBC are not prepared to meet my demands of £600,000 per year for for a two minute slot per week where Mystic John refuses to be interupted on the World At One.

    Now if only the Tories would commision me !

    “Helen Boaden, director of BBC News, is a naturally chipper, can-do person, her positivity reflected in her cropped red hair, bright yellow …”

    Oh sorry, it’s from The (not) Independent.

    Always interesting to look at the face of evil. In this case, aparently, it has red cropped hair. No doubt it’s genetic too.

      Beyond the default slavish mutual admiration of narrative-mandated issues that renders the independence claim a silly conceit, one has to love the utter journalistic tripe inherent in that sentence.
