Swindle Update: ABC is now slamming the Swindle

The Swindle is a one-sided anti-global warming argument put together by a film maker with a name for skewing the facts, and featuring greenhouse skeptics with media profiles that far exceed their scientific publishing records.”

- ABC Online Science writer, Bernie Hobbs

A new little button titled “The Great Global Warming Swindle SWINDLE” has just been added on ABC Australia's dedicated “Great Global Warming Swindle” webpage.

The new section absolutely trashes Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle” film.

Insider says all not well at ABC over Swindle decision

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.

ABC Australia to Air Durkin's Swindle

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.
