The Making Of A Stealth Edit

The Devil's Kitchen has the extraordinary back-story of the BBC's de-balancing editing of an article on the decreasing of global temperatures in 2008.

It seems that the changes that were made, which I highlighted yesterday, at the behest of one Green activist, Jo Abbess. Bishop Hill's blog carries the full exchange of e-mails between Abbess and the BBC environment correspondent Roger Harribin.

Who would think that the BBC would be so easily influenced. Fellow libertarians, whenever we see a story on the BBC website which fails to provide a libertarian viewpoint, we now know what to do!
