The new section absolutely trashes Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle” film.
Australian newspaper, The Age, is reporting the inside scoop on the internal battles at ABC Australia over its decision to air shock-u-mentarian Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle.”
According to one website, the head of Factual Entertainment for ABC flew to London to personally apologize to Durkin for the “rough treatment” he received from ABC Lateline host Tony Jones who was in London last week doing a pre-taped interview to be aired after the Swindle.
Here's just a sampling of the media reaction to ABC Australia's airing Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle.”
Not exactly the coverage Durkin had in mind.
ABC Australia will be airing the UK-produced “Great Global Warming Swindle.” Following the show, Lateline host Tony Jones will interview the Swindle's director, Martin Durkin. There will also be a panel discussion on the scientific validity of the Swindle claims that will include well-known denier Bob Carter.
According to media reports , the addition of the Tony Jones interview and the panel were a compromise after much editorial in-fighting over whether to air the documentary.
