BBC Deny Saying Denier! | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

The information you have requested is out of scope of the Act. However, we are happy to explain there is no formal guidance on the use of the word “denier” in relation to climate change. I would be surprised if you had heard BBC presenters or correspondents referring to “deniers” except in circumstances when they are quoting remarks by other people. Generally we tend to refer in our output to “sceptics” because the word “denier” can be regarded in some circumstances as pejorative.
