News Corp’s ‘senior climate change denier’ clarifies the publisher’s stance on climate change

If the back and forth between the ABC and the Guardian and Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp over the topic of climate change denial was becoming too much for you to handle, have no fear. A handy video from the folks at 7.30 aims to put the record straight.

This Peter Muck looks strangely familiar….

Starring News Corp’s ‘senior climate change denier’, Peter Muck, the video begins by addressing the embarrassing leaked email which emerged last week, denouncing the company’s attitude towards bushfire coverage, but takes a turn when Muck is unable to remember what he’s been told to say by ‘Rupert’.

From The Australian’s headlines on Greta Thunberg (‘Deciphering Greta’s Gobful’) to hoping an arsonist will pass by to help the business get rid of a couple of op-eds, Muck puts forward a persuasive case as to why News Corp has been unfairly targeted by other media outlets.

Dr Mumbo recommends you come for the satire and stay for the line about Gwenyth Paltrow’s new candle. Rupert’s gonna love that.
