Who's swindling who?

Lots of commentary from all different sources on the Ofcom ruling about the non-AGW video, the Great Global Warming Swindle.  Most of it breaks in clear ideological lines, as pointed out here.
In many ways, the reporting reflects a wider bias in the media.
We are who we are: and, in five years, who we are will be a function of:
  • what we read
  • what we listen to, and
  • who we associate with. 
Our choice. 
The internet provides the means by which more people have more freedom to choose the media and the information they wish to read and listen to than at any previous point in history. 
Some will appreciate Penn and Teller's message, others won't.
Some want people to think for themselves.  Others just wish to assert their authority.
