Why is the ABC showing the “Great Global Warming Swindle” on both ABC-TV and ABC2 at the same time? There’s nowhere in Australia where the second channel can be received that the first channel can’t also be received. And it’s not like ABC2’s miniscule audience is going to add anything to that which ABC-TV will get; of the few people who have digital receivers, how many of those even know ABC2 exists?
In all, it smacks of a cowed ABC giving in to a badly stacked board. I don’t care if they show it on either channel, despite the fact that it has been thoroughly discredited; but there’s simply no good reason to be showing it on both channels at once.
