Ask No Questions!

Video Description:
"Journalist Phelim McAleer ('Mine Your Own Business', 'Not Evil Just Wrong') asks Prof Stephen Schneider from Stanford University an Inconvenient Question about 'Climategate' emails. McAleer is interrupted twice by Prof Schneider's assistant and UN staff and then told to stop filming by an armed UN security guard."

Covering this story, is
Mike Flynn:
"McAleer says he has made an official complaint tabout the incident.

“I have met Mr Christopher Ankerson the UN’s head of security for the conference and he has confirmed it was Professor Schneider’s staff who asked the security guards to come corral us at the press conference. Mr Ankerson could not say what grounds the security guard had for ordering us to stop filming.”

“This is a blatant attempt to stop journalists doing journalism and asking hard questions. It is not the job of armed UN security officers to stop legitimate journalists asking legitimate questions of senior members of the UN’s IPCC.”

Professor Schneider was interviewed for McAleer’s “Not Evil Just Wrong” documentary but lawyers later wrote to McAleer saying he was withdrawing permission for the interview to be used."


  1. I thought the UN was against guns!

    Oh, you mean it was just against OUR guns. Got it.

  2. OK, let's get this straight, McAleer is a journalist with press pass credentials but he his not allowed at the press conference.

    Is that right?

    The Liberal Fascists tend not to wear the obvious brown shirt and jackboots. Don't let that fool ya.

  3. Silence, whippersnapper! You dare to question the great Oz?
