Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

It's irresponsible to spread such stories. I think our media has behaved most of the time, but when a scientist said 20-70% of the population could get Covid-19 a newspaper ran the headline "70% can get the virus". ajb007/crap

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I am trying to find the passage in doubt here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000fw0m

Please let me know roughly the right timestamp so that I can narrow it down (it's a 3 hour show).
So far from what I am hearing, the reporting about Corona worldwide is professional, responsible, accurate and careful - I have no indicator of any sensationalist speculations so far but will come back if there is.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Lately  bbc news  seems no longer to
Be impartial  on many stories and only
Broadcasts one side of the argument.
Rather than being impartial  giving a
Counter point to the discussion .
We've seen it in the Brexit debate, when
They very clearly  went with the remain
Camp.
With Climate Change they regularly  put
Out the climate extremist  view with no
Counter opinion and now with the latest
Health scare story, they've decided to go
With the alarmist  " This is the end of the
World " opinion, not bothering  with the
Fantastic impartial  news and facts service
It once was .
Just one more reason why so many Britains
Want an end to the licence fee,  as the BBC
Is no longer an impartial  news service

I have no idea of the time point, I know it was before " Thought for the day "  that's as close as I can remember, although  it gives me immense
Pleasure knowing your dislike  of me would have you take three hours out of your life, simply to prove me wrong . ajb007/lol

If this helps, at about 08.10 they usually have a feature on the day's biggest topic so that would be my guess.
At 25 past each hour they have a sport report, followed at around the half hour by headlines so you can skip those parts.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

When it comes to climate change I'm with the BBC. The evidence gathered by scientists is now very clear. I don't see why they should pretend there's any doubt because the internet, a very small number of scientists, some of the media and right-wing politicians say otherwise. To quote the TV series "The Newsroom": "If the Republican Party one day says the Earth is flat, our headline won't be Republicans and Democrats disagree on flatness of Earth" There's nothing extreme about believing in science.

Everyone please listen and make his own conclusion how this "outragement" works *
In their press review, they are quoting the Telegraph with those numbers (up to 50.000 deaths and crematoria working 24 hours).

Sorry, TP, I call you bs with your everlasting battle against the BBC.

- It was not their correspondent
- they where quoting someone else (The Telegraph)

and as reporters, it's their job to REPORT different angles by disclosing who said what.

* it works like that:
Take a small snipped out of context from a reputable show from a reputable station, blow it up and use it to discredit the entire branch.
And mock on people like me who doubt it that it really happened like that.

Case closed!

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I've made a point of reading a few of
These climate reports etc, to get some
Facts and it's far from 100% agreement .
Here's an easy question,  man is increasing
Earth's  temp,  ok. Then why is the temp on
Mars also on the increase ?
Apart from the conspiracy  secret Mars based
I don't think we have any cars or factories  there .

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I've never heard the Mars argument before, but the climate deniers are sure getting desperate! There is a near consensus in the science world and the facts on the ground supports what's in their reports.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

That's the point I'm trying to make.
Anyone who takes the time to
Investigate these reports, will find
That the scientific  community  is as
Divided as the public, but it suits the
Media to sell " Bad News" .
All I'm saying is there are always two
Sets of opinions, I'd personally  like to
Hear both, then make up my mind.
Just look at the language  used " climate
Deniers " ? The term Denier used to be
Only used about the holocaust,  now it's
Anyone who disagrees  with Greta.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I am waiting for a correction of yxour previous post. That's the least decent thing that you could do.

I don't expect you to apologize for mocking at me after I have told you that you are probably wrong.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I was thinking someone (me?) should knock up a poll on who should be the next Bond actor after NTTD was finished running in the cinemas. But nowow that we have seven months where next to nothing will happen on the Bond front, perhaps now is the time? The we have on the topic is outdated with several actors who are around fifty years old. What do you think?
(I know what thread I'm on, I was just thinking I should air the idea here before I started work)

Cement in DC's tenure  as the longest
