Mask Slips From Greenpeace ‘Health Charity’ Front

Anti-fracking-protests-010

A report published by “independent” medical charity Medact calling for a UK-wide moratorium on fracking, is nothing more than left-wing propaganda pushed by Green extremists, Gaia can reveal. The Guardian is already excitedly claiming that the report is prompting doctors and academics to call for a ban on fracking…

Health & Fracking was launched yesterday by Andy Haines, who wrote a chapter of a Greenpeace global warming report, and its lead author is David McCoy. McCoy is on the record saying that health professional associations should do more to lend their authority to the campaigning efforts of organisations such as Greenpeace.

Another contributor to the report is none other than Mike Hill. As previously revealed by Gaia, Hill is a fantasist who falsely claims to be an advisor to the government and EU and is running for parliament on an anti-fracking platform. Something the report didn’t see relevant to declare as a conflict of interest… 

Medact is funded by the ‘International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons UK’, of which Greenpeace is a partner organisation, along with Crisis Action, who include Greenpeace in its network of members. ‘Scientists for Global Responsibility’, whose Executive Director has collaborated with Greenpeace, also supported them. Do we detect a pattern here?

Gaia hears whispers that the report was originally scheduled for release last week, but Medact opted to drop it during purdah so that Public Health England could not respond…

Guardian Could Champion Better Bill Gates Cause

Bill-Gates-vaccine

The Guardian’sKeep it in the Ground’ anti-hydro-carbon fuels campaign, conveniently launched after the Guardian pocketed $1 billion from the sale of gas guzzler’s weekly AutoTrader, is well under way with more than 74,000 readers signing a petition urging the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to stop investing in energy corporations. According to the Guardian, these investments pose a “real threat to us all” and are morally misguided.

Bill Gates’ foundation’s malaria vaccine programme alone is on track to save 8.7 million of the worlds poorest from an agonising death by 2020. That’s 8.7 million more lives than will be saved by windmills.

Guardian Smear Apple on Behalf of ‘Big-Watch” Lobby

apple-watch-6_1

This week the Guardian ran a withering article by Martin McNulty about the new Apple Watch. In it McNulty accuses Apple of losing all credibility, likens the watch to the much-maligned Bluetooth headset and concludes by assuring readers that Steve Jobs would basically be turning in his grave.

So, who is this Martin McNulty? He’s the chief executive of marketing companies Forward3D and Locaria, whose clients include Kering, the owner of luxury watch manufacturers Ulysse Nardin, Jean Richard and Girard-Perregaux.

Guardian Admit To Screwing Over Tech Company

guardian

The Guardian have admitted that the scathing hatchet job they wrote about US tech company Whisper was largely false. Back in October the home of ‘quality journalism’ breached just about every tenet of media integrity after the reporters they sent to work on a media partnership with Whisper wrote a slimy exposé about them. As a result of the accusations that Whisper (who pride themselves on keeping their users data private) were spying on their customers, the company’s fortunes plummeted and senior management heads rolled.

Yesterday the Guardian deleted one of their articles about Whisper and reworded another – retracting much of their original allegations.

Facts are sacred…

Alan Rusbridger Receives Police Caution On Hampstead Heath

Via his Instagram:

“So I took this unremarkable picture on Hampstead Heath this morning while being photographed by@davidlevene. The minute speck in the middle of the picture became very upset… and 10 minutes I was being cautioned by a police officer on behalf of @davidlevene for his illegal use of a tripod. Unlike some editors I believe in taking the rap when caught red-handed”

Free the Islington one!

UPDATE: Rusbridger speaks.

Professor Greenslade Overlooks Guardian’s Double-Digit Decline

professor-greenslade

Media commentator Roy Greenslade reports that the Sun’s circulation was down to 1,842,284 copies a day in February, a fall of 6.89%. Professor Greenslade, writing in the Guardian, speculates as to if it is due to the suspension of the traditional Page 3 Girl from the print edition – though she can still be found in all her glory in the online edition.[…]

The G-Factor Candidates Audition

The Guardian editor pitches are out, with some deliciously cringworthy brown-nosing submitted in the“candidate statements” of the new wannabe Rusbridgers.

Janine Gibson, one of the favourites, goes for the Islington vote:

“we’re a meeting place for the communities we create around shared passions whether its county cricket, poetry, theatre or watching strangers date wearing Google Glass”

Hotly-tipped Katharine Viner has some innovative crowd-pleasing ideas:

“Themed roles would help us tell a coherent international story: correspondents for water, fossil fuels, women’s rights, a 1% correspondent.”

Meet Wolfgang Blau, the ‘check your privilege’ candidate:

“In regards to our journalistic portfolio, I would like to propose that we substantially increase the diversity of voices – politically, as well as ethnically… I am not a woman and I have not grown up in the United Kingdom.

Telegraph and Guardian At War

Last night the Telegraph dismissed the Guardian as “cushioned from commercial reality by a generously-endowed charitable trust”, this afternoon they accuse them of hypocrisy:

“in July last year Apple bought wraparound advertising on The Guardian’s website and stipulated that the advertising should not be placed next to negative news.

Owen Jones Distances Himself From Guardian

 

Challenged by Toby Young on the Daily Politics, Owen Jones swerved the question of the Guardian attacking offshore tax shelters whilst sheltering half-a-billion of its assets in the Caymans:

“I am not responsible for my employer’s tax affairs.”

While writing in today’s paper that “while the poor’s smallest misdemeanours are punished, the rich are able to draft the loopholes they then use to avoid tax”…[…]

Polly’s “Precarious” Guardian Has £850 Million Cash Reserves

Polly Toynbee has a full page advert in today’s Guardian asking readers to “become a Founder member” for £540-a-year. In other words write them a cheque because the £1.60 they pay to read the paper isn’t enough to save it from its “precarious” position:

“The Guardian’s life has always been precarious because we don’t have an owner or a corporation propping us up.

Guardian’s Small Correction & Clarification

coulson-correction

Over page after page last summer the Guardian splashed on the front page of G2 about the baby-eating antics of News of the World journalists. Today hidden back on page 32 a small clarification reveals allegations were untrue. Notice how the Guardian is currently now splashing page after page, day after day, about the Daily Mirror’s corporate malfeasance and multi-million pay outs to hacked celebs?[…]
