There was a revealing comment, in passing, from BBC presenter Martine Croxall to Dateline London Canadian regular Jeffrey Kofman this weekend:
What Extinction Rebellion are saying, Jeffrey, isn't exactly controversial, is it?
Some - at the very least - of what they're saying is certainly controversial - e.g. their claims, and their targets, and the possible economic impact of their proposals.
Is this rosy view of XR common at the BBC?
