"BBC Criticized for Booking Climate Skeptics"

"An independent review panel has criticized the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) for booking so many climate change skeptics on its programs, saying the network is giving them too much attention.

The report released Sunday by the BBC Trust found that the United Kingdom’s state-owned network tended toward an “over-rigid application of editorial guidelines on impartiality,” resulting in “undue attention to marginal opinion.

The study’s authors said human-caused climate change undoubtedly exists, and BBC’s efforts to give skeptics equal time does not adequately convey that fact."
