That's all very well but the BBC in particular are notorious for
selecting only one side of the argument.


The people who make such claims nearly always turn out to have a
denialist agenda unsupported by any science. The BBC have had a
long-standing policy of impartiality on this as on other issues:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctrust/our_w...artiality.html

p40 reads: "Climate change is another subject where dissenters can be
unpopular. There may be now a broad scientific consensus that climate
change is definitely happening, and that it is at least predominantly
man-made. But the second part of that consensus still has some
intelligent and articulate opponents, even if a small minority.

Jana Bennett, Director of Television, argued at the seminar that ‘as
journalists, we have the duty to understand where the weight of the
evidence has got to. And that is an incredibly important thing in
terms of public understanding – equipping citizens, informing the
public as to what’s going to happen or not happen possibly over the
next couple of hundred years.’

current affairs output"

'Ofcom' being the UK's communications regulator.

current affairs output"

'Ofcom' being the UK's communications regulator.


And? This is a sign that the media environment is being overseen. This is
good thing. It could well find there's no problem and if it does find
issues then the BBC will adapt.

None of the skeptic and denialist websites are regulated at all, so you can
pretty much guarantee they're not impartial. I'd choose the BBC over them
any time. Although, as a scientist i prefer going to the source publication
if i want to read the details.

From the above link:
"More than seven in ten (73 per cent) of those surveyed in Ofcom’s latest
News Consumption in the UK report rated the BBC highly for providing
high-quality, trustworthy and accurate news.

Meanwhile more than eight in ten (83 per cent) rated its current affairs TV
programmes highly for providing high-quality commentary, investigative
journalism, and for helping them understand what is going on in the world."
