UN press conference, SHUT OFF THAT CAMERA, YOU!

Just so we are all perfectly clear where the IPCC and the UN stand on freedom of speech and freedom of the press:

A Stanford Professor has used United Nation security officers to silence a journalist asking him "inconvenient questions"  during a press briefing at the climate change conference in Copenhagen.

Professor Stephen Schneider's assistant requested armed UN security officers who held film maker Phelim McAleer, ordered him to stop filming and prevented further questioning after the press conference where the Stanford academic was launching a book.

The video is classic.  Big gut security boy playing the heavy.  Sweet. 

The reporter's questions weren't out of line either.  "How do you feel about scientists destroying data collected with public money?"  "How do you feel about Phil Jones telling people to delete inconvenient emails?"

Just so there's no possible mistake which side of the fight for truth justice and freedom the UN is on, eh?

The Phantom
