What are they so afraid of?
Opponents of global warming should be given less coverage by the BBC than the climate change lobby, the corporation will rule.Oh, so a genetics professor is now a media expert?
The BBC is set to publish a report tomorrow on its science output announcing changes to rules on impartiality.
Following the overhaul, programme makers and broadcasters will be compelled to give less prominence to those who oppose the scientific community's majority view.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the report draws heavily on an independent review of BBC coverage by Steve Jones, a professor of genetics at University College London.
Professor Jones is understood to have cleared the BBC of any suggestion of bias in its programming.
But the main conclusion made is that in cases where there is a widely held scientific view, such as on GM crops or the MMR injection, the BBC shouldn't give airtime to critics of the scientific consensus.That's right. Just shut out the opinion of others and you can all believe your own bullshit.
