Climategate and the death of the MSM

This article in the Telegraph also caught my eye today.


Climategate: the ailing 'mainstream' media are committing suicide by ignoring the scoop of the century.

A well crafted article by Gerald Warner asserting that the MSM may well have shot themselves in the foot by attempting to ignore the very fact that a great many people have doubts about AGW. A vast number of whom actually do have relevant credentials to understand the science.

And he has this to say about BBC Pravda:

That is the despised organisation that relentlessly inflicts climate alarmist propaganda, fairy tales, “bedtime stories” on the British public, in the style of Radio Moscow, circa 1954 (“Implement the resolutions of the 23rd Congress…” “We have 27 minutes to save the polar bears from melting…”). No intelligent or inquiring individual believes, respects or trusts the BBC. Ditto the print media that is similarly spewing out Al Gore’s trashy superstition.

And his final words:

It seems less than likely. The Mainstream Media are hanging themselves – it is doubtful that they can any longer be described as mainstream. These are turkeys voting for Christmas.
