This Earth Day The Washington Post Magazine used images of burning globes, an illustration of sea levels so high modern apartments resemble Atlantis, and a photo illustration of Marines raising a green flag over Iwo Jima. And that was just three of the 24 separate magazine covers included in the magazine’s April 21 edition — all focused on climate change alarmism. Out of 51 pages including the front and back covers of the April 21 issue, climate change-themed images or articles were on 48 pages.
That’s what you call “all in.”
Columbia Journalism School wants “a new playbook” for journalism in a “1.5 degree world” because “we believe the news business must also transform.” So they’ve handpicked a selection of global warming alarmists and far-left media to instruct the media how to change.
Don’t expect that change to be toward balance or giving climate skeptics any air time. But be sure to look for major media to join in. MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Vox are all part of the “journalism” event.
Chevron’s winning streak in the courtroom against Ecuador over rainforest pollution continued in April. So did the liberal media’s silence on the battle.
How do millionaire entrepreneurs feel about the government taking more of their money?
Yahoo Finance editor-in-chief Andy Serwer found out when he invited one of them on his Influencers show April 12. He asked entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck (also called Gary Vee) about “politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who says [sic] we should have more government involvement in terms of people making higher wages.” For him, the matter had less to do with how much of his hard-earned money is given away, and more to do with how it would be spent.
There are actually three certainties of life: death, taxes and that the liberal media will condemn tax cuts.
The New York Times published side-by-side stories on tax day about the impact of the 2017 tax reform bill. The first was about people “shocked” by lower refunds or owing taxes this April. The second proved that although most people got a tax cut (estimates varied from 64.8% to 80% of filers), many remain “skeptical” that they did.
Liberals demanding higher taxes on the rich is just another day in Washington, D.C., but those progressive voices have more in common than their politics of envy. Some of them also have the financial backing of liberal billionaire George Soros.
The liberal media launched an offensive against both of President Donald Trump’s selections for the Federal Reserve board of governors.
The media have outdone themselves slinging mud at the “controversial” and “unqualified” picks of economics writer and Club for Growth founder Stephen Moore and millionaire businessman, former CEO and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain also served as a director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Directors provide “insight on current and emerging issues” in the business community.
Given the very few job gains in February and rampant media speculation in March about a coming recession, it was essential that all three evening news shows update their audiences about jobs and unemployment April 5.
But not all of them did.
The strong March jobs report “should end” concerns that a recession is “lurking” as one Hill op-ed suggested March 1. The media worried and speculated over recession throughout the entire month of March.
The government released the March jobs report on April 5, showing 196,000 jobs added — more than 20,000 higher than expected. It also showed unemployment holding steady at 3.8 percent.
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
The Green New Deal plan got zero votes in the Senate this week. Z-E-R-O. Yet progressives continue to claim people “like” the plan, with the help of the liberal media.
