Did you know that it is CBC editorial policy to not provide both sides of the argument when discussing issues about climate change?
I have an email sent to me by a viewer to prove it.
This viewer was watching The National one night. He was struck by the lack of balance they provided in a story about Lennox Island, PEI. The island is shrinking and CBC blamed it on climate change and the rising ocean.
Rob thought there was more to it, so he wrote a letter to the Ombudsman, Esther Enkin, telling her so.
I'll read you Enkin’s reply. It was astounding.
I've emailed Esther the Ombudsman asking her what the company wide mandate at the CBC is with regard to global warming, and why she thinks the opinions of many taxpayers just aren't relevant.
If she replies, I’ll let you know.
Science should have no ideology and should stand up to scrutiny and debate. That's how it works.
Instead CBC are the flat-earthers of our time, shutting out skeptics and protecting the government political agenda instead.
