UN bans skeptical media from upcoming climate conference

The United Nations has refused to accredit three journalists associated with Canadian climate skeptic Ezra Lavant.

The UN appears to be blacklisting skeptics from covering the upcoming global warming conference in Marrakech, Morocco. See here.

The UN accuses Lavant’s “Rebel” journalists of being “advocacy journalists.”

Yet opinion journalists comprise a large proportion of the thousands of journalists who cover the UN’s global warming conferences.

“The UN even welcomes global warming lobby groups, including “community organizers” posing as journalists. Greenpeace-style blogs, like Canada’s own DeSmog Blog attend in full advocacy mode, as well as other small websites like The Tyee and the Vancouver Observer, both supported by Tides.”
