Another global hoax

BBC's revelations anger Newhouse, Oregonian
Media mogul rescinds acquisition on heels of global warming heresy

Remember the pageantry, the champagne and strawberries, the hot celebrity-spotting when Si Newhouse - the out-of-state multi-billionaire owner of The Oregonian - announced he was buying BBC, the venerable British Broadcasting Corporation?

Well, now you can just fuhgetaboutit. BBC's role in "The Great Global Warming Swindle" video sensation has put the mega-deal into a deep freeze. The 85-minute film, originally leaked to the public via YouTube in 8 parts, has generated a buzz-wave of gigantic proportion, becoming the most-watched on-line video in history. BBC is now airing the film in a rotation 4 to 6 times per day.

Script writers who have had doors slammed in their faces are being wined and dined in Hollywood, as producers seek to tap a gold mine of public burn-out on global warming. Why the turn-about? To appeal to movie-goers' emergent quirky and creative side. That translates to a heavy dose of mockery of both politicians and the mainstream media. "Issues" - even serious ones - are understood as mere excuses for political power grabbing-as-usual.

Alberto Bondigas, campaign spokesperson for former next U.S. President Al Gore, commented, "President Gore recognizes the new reality. The public has enormous doubts about "war on anything" - including global warming or killer asteroids. This video has proven that the worldwide public holds a deeply rooted belief that conflated media Establishment crises are simply false pretenses for power-tripping. President Gore believes that the public everywhere has no patience for prosecution of any war of any kind anywhere."

And since Si Newhouse and The Oregonian have placed huge bets in the opposite direction, the Newhouse-BBC deal is now just another casualty of global cooling on global warming.
