Journalism For Dummkopfs – German National Radio Calls On Journalists “To Question Their Own Professional Procedures”

The Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum is holding a conference in Bonn, Germany from June 21 to 23 called: Climate Change and the Media. The Deutsche Welle is publically funded by mandatory fees imposed on German citizens. It’s similar to BBC Radio.

The conference will feature a number of let’s-save-the-planet workshops. Click list of workshops.

One workshop that caught our attention is How to professionally deal with climate scepticism. Or simply put: Journalism for Dummkopfs. The panelists are Bob Ward and Ms Denial of Nonconsensus herself, Naomi Oreskes. The workshop’s objective:

This workshop aims to point out what journalists must know about climate change policy, whom to trust and when to question their own professional procedures.

That’s right, journalists are being encouraged to throw investigative reporting and balance overboard, i.e. to take up the role of propaganda outlet for press releases put out by the Climate Science Politburo. The panelists go on to warn:

Falling back on a “neutral” journalistic position can mean playing into the hands of the skeptics at the expense of the basis of life.

Yes, the alarmist zealots think the very basis of life hinges on this.

A few journalists in Germany have actually practiced journalism on the issue of climate science recently, and this has infuriated the Established Climate “Science” Community. They too are threatened with the Big Cutoff. You see, although journalists have the competence to report critically on “rudimentary” issues like economics, finance, politics, law,  civics and so on, climate science is far too complex with too much at stake to leave in their hands.

Not only are the alarmist zealots calling for a suspension of democracy, claiming casus belli, but now they’re also demanding that journalists abandon journalism altogether. What gate-name ought I assign to this one? Dummkopf Journalism-gate?

    I keep sayin’, the Warmists will not give up until the glaciers coming down the Hudson crush Manhatten.

  2. Interglacial John Says:

    Is anyone else spooked when German National Radio is dictating how journalists should write their stories? Haven’t we seen this before? I think it is time to defund all public radio in all countries, it is journalistic poison.


  3. Naomi Oreskes is speaking?

    That should be enough for the warmists for another ten years

  4. R. de Haan Says:

    Goebels is back.


  5. I just went to Youtube and tried to watch a Oreskes video. Just letting you all know. I really tried hard.

  6. Dojikiri Says:

    How long before there are public burnings of sceptic writings in Germany?

  7. Barney Stores Says:

    The four corners of deceit are academia, journalism (media), government, and science. An unproven hypothesis is not a theory or a law of science. There is no consensus. The left lies. The left believes that the ends justify the means.

  8. Russell C Says:

    Ms Oreskes wants everyone to think the mainstream media was ‘balanced’ on the subject to begin with. What happens when the opposite situation exists? See: “The lack of climate skeptics on PBS’s ‘Newshour'” http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2009/12/the_lack_of_climate_skeptics_o.html

  9. R. Reagan Says:

    I guess “those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it.” It doesn’t even take 100 years to forget the evils your country has committed. Evils don’t happen all at once, they go in steps and I do believe this is a step.
