ABC’s biased reporting is a threat to Australia’s democracy

Written by Dr Judy Ryan

Dear PSI-Australia Readers, Below the read more line is the text of an email that I sent to Australia’s taxpayer funded ABC personnel.  The email contains the news that Climate Alarmist Michael Mann has lost his libel case against Dr Tim Ball, which of course, Auntie ABC has not even deigned to report.

Dear ABC Board Members,Directors and Journalists,
 
I write to inform; the evidence indicates that, as a collective, you have a narcissistic, socialist ideology. That makes you a threat to Australia’s democracy.    Therefore, as editor of PSI– Australia I will exclude you from all breaking news releases.
 
The reason for my decision is that the ABC is selectively biased in its reporting style. The astonishing news on Saturday 24th August was that the alarmist climate ‘scientist’ Michael Mann, apparently, had faked his data for the infamous Hockey Stick temperature graph  and consequently lost his lawsuit against retired Climatologist Dr Tim Ball. But, the taxpayer funded ABC did not report this landmark case, which will be referred to many times for litigation in Australia. I don’t think you have even reported it yet. Please correct me if I am wrong.
 Other media outlets such as Sky News reported the breaking news promptly. Sky News and other independent MSM are keeping their viewers informed while the taxpayer funded ABC  is intentionally keeping their viewers in the dark. What sort of journalism is that?
Here is the link to PSI-Australia  from where the quote below comes .
“Not only did the B.C. Supreme Court grant Ball’s application for dismissal of the 8-year, multi-million dollar lawsuit, it also took the additional step of awarding full legal costs to Ball”. Just to be clear, that means that Michael Mann will have to pay his own costs as well as those for Dr Tim Ball.
In conclusion,
Unless Australia’s fragile democracy collapses in the interim, this landmark legal case will mark the beginning of the end of one of one of the  greatest scams of all time.
Respectfully Yours,

    The ABC’s lack of humility and curiosity in regard to climate change – its causes and cures – impoverishes our nation in more ways than one and sets a bad example to the young.

      Hi Janet,
      I’m thinking that SBS is just as bad as the ABC. On the night in question SBS also didn’t report that landmark trial. Instead they reported some absolute drivel (pls excuse my language) about plans for a huge solar farm in Australia’s interior where they would somehow transmit the energy production to the coast then send it through a pipe, not yet constructed underneath the ocean to other Asian nations!!!

    This is wonderful news. We had fair idea of the Hockey Stick was based on rather dodgy data, the book “The Hockey Stick Delusion” clearly explained the junk science and outright cherry picking behind it, But the result of this case bares out the outright scam.

    This is further evidence the deliberate corruption of science in this field. It has completely ignored John Tyndall’s original discovery of infra absorption of gases in the 1859, which clearly showed that CO2 is “one of the feeblest absorbers of the radiant heat emitted by solid sources”. He referred this as “the calorific rays”.As for water vapour, it stands as ” signalising itself above all others by its enormous power of absorption”. There is at least 10x amount of water vapour in the atmosphere than CO2.
    Just yesterday, my daughter was playing me an audio book on Astronomy, it mentioned CO2 as a powerful greenhouse gas!! I quickly corrected this nonsense to her, emphasised this was absolutely WRONG and quoted John Tyndall’s experimental findings.
    This climate catastrophism scam has twisted the original experimental evidence beyond recognition.
    Anyway, Well done Tim Ball!

    Unfortunately we are up against propagandists and, what;s more, propagandists funded by the public purse.

    It’s time that ‘Their ABC’ is de-funded, with the exception perhaps of the rural section, and the music section. The rest can go – it’s become nothing more than a trendy, politically correct champion of a political movement. And that movement is not for free enterprise and individual achievement, the very things that have brought humanity out of the Stone Age!

    And as for the promotion of ‘a climate emergency’, and the corruption of children’s minds ……

    The ABC has long ago stopped acting int eh interests of mainstream Australians and as such, the funding to it should be curtailed.

    Several things occur to me about the ABC’s deliberate(?) omission of any mention of Tim Ball’s court win against Michael Mann. People have to learn that they cannot change the facts of history, It is important that the information is widely disseminated, to the general public as well as school children and their woefully uneducated teachers. I have lived in Australia for 42 years, and remember that I was impressed with the honesty and integrity of the ABC when first I bought a TV set (in 1981). However somehow it has been on a downward slide since then, and I have found myself looking for more and more foreign news services as time goes by. I really do not think that a news service should be run by public servants.!

    I could not believe that the ABC (I didn’t check the SBS) did not mention Tim Ball’s win over Michael Mann’s fraudulent claim that neither the Mediaeval Warm Spell, or the Little Ice Age did not happen. The written historical evidence for both time periods is extensive, and comes from reliable sources, like monkish writings and records of the money that Scottish monasteries made from selling wine to Paris using their own home grown grapes. It seems that the French liked our good red wine and imported a lot of it. The magnificent violins made in Italy about 1680 – 1720 by Stradivarius and his contemporaries were made from timber that showed very little seasonal banding, because the warm wet summers hardly happened, and in consequence there were no tree rings, and the timber was all fine-grained winter wood, which could be cut into very thin pieces, and was easy to mould into the subtle shapes which produce the exquisite tones of the violins characteristic of this period. Historical facts cannot be changed, no matter what Dt Mann thinks. These broadcasters can get away with ignoring important scientific events, so long as our children have been taught by teachers who know little or no science or history – because they were never taught any either by their teachers.. This “Climate Change Hysteria” will continue until we start to take a good hard look at our education system. Woe betide us if we don’t!

      Well stated Marjorie. Thank God that at least one of the Australian judges is ethical and courageous.
      Tim Ball’s victory was a landmark trial and will go down in history as setting a precedent.

      Re the taxpayer-funded ABC and SBS their funding will go down, down, down until it disappears.
