Starting off a new series on Monday called Top of the World, ahead of Earth Day, NBC’s Today show sent correspondent Jacob Soboroff to the North Pole “to understand why we have all been experiencing such extreme weather, from droughts to fires, floods and hurricanes, even more.” The reporter hyped how he joined a team of NASA scientists “working around the clock to compile data that could be critical to our future on Earth.”
On Tuesday, David Roberts at the hopelessly left-biased Vox.com promoted a decidedly negative form of supply-side economics, namely "policies that choke off fossil fuels at their origin." He, and the authors of a paper he referenced which advocates "restrictive supply-side climate policies," act as if this is something new, when governments and sometimes violent envirozealots have long engaged in these activities.
The broadcast news shows have been obsessed with all things Russia — well, almost all things. Russian social media agitation and propagandizing over energy sources, pipeline projects and climate change was ignored.
ABC’s new drama For The People is back once again to teach us how to practice law SJW-style. We’ve seen them tackle racism not once but twice, so now they’re taking on a new opponent: evil corporations.
CBS This Morning on Tuesday freaked out over the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to dump higher fuel economy standards. Or as co-host Gayle King put it: “The Trump administration is set to roll back one of President Obama's signature policies on the environment.”
The Guardian bolstered the proliferation of lawsuits against governments and companies over climate change by portraying them as incredibly significant. The left-wing British newspaper asked in all seriousness on March 20, “Can Climate Litigation Save the World?”
Since the beginning of recorded history there have been end of the world predictions. In recent years we have had radio preachers, politicians and scientists declare with certainty that the world would soon end, either because of our decadent lifestyle, or because of "global warming," now known as "climate change."
The recent media frenzy over EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s travel expenses and use of first-class cabins, often lacked crucial information — like the death threats he has received.
According to The Wall Street Journal in November 2017, Pruitt gets five times as many threats as the previous EPA administrator and there had been “explicit death threats.” His family was also threatened. Yet, some media outlets completely ignored the existence of threats as they criticized his travel costs.
In a move that was strange and downright infuriating to many liberals, Bill Nye the Science Guy attended the State of The Union Address as a guest of Republican Congressman, Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma. Many on the left consider Nye, a climate change evangelist and general liberal activist, to be betraying his values by attending the event with the Trump-backed congressman.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher made a number of incendiary attacks on President Donald Trump and other right-leaning figures and entities as he called EPA head Scott Pruitt an "eco-terrorist," likened the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to the "Gestapo," and cracked that First Lady Melania Trump visited the Holocaust Museum to "cheer up" after news broke that her husband might have had an affair with a porn star.
This Week in Media Bias History returns with some real groaners from the liberal press. In 1994, ABC lamented the demise of the USSR, saying, “For many, the workers’ paradise has become a homeless hell.” In 2015, PBS chided that having more kids meant more damage to Earth. And NBC’s Bryant Gumbel mocked Donald Trump... back in 1992.
To mark Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, CNN.com uncorked a stunningly crazy piece by CNN enterprise writer John Blake about modern day lessons from King such as his supposed status as “an environmental hero” and the need to embrace socialism since “[h]e was a socialist before it was cool.”
