Over the weekend, CNN hosts have continued to fret over President Donald Trump taking a jab at global warming in a tweet about the record cold temperatures in the Eastern U.S. On Sunday's State of the Union, CNN anchor Dana Bash wondered if it was "appropriate" for President Trump to make such a joke about an issue that "scientists believe is harming the country and the world" as she spoke with former White House advisor Anthony Scaramucci. And on Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera brought up the tweet with right-leaning CNN commentator Scott Jennings and alluded to polling suggesting young Americans are alienated from Republicans because of the global warming issue.
On Friday morning, CNN anchors were freaking out as President Donald Trump used the occasion of record-low temperatures on the East Coast to take a jab at global warming theory. On CNN's Early Start program, co-host Dave Briggs repeatedly called Trump's tweet "bizarre," and CNN's New Day also dealt with the story in the first half hour of the show.
Four very different films hit theaters over the past few weeks. Consider: A sequel to one of the most talked about documentaries in recent memory, an artsy horror film featuring an Oscar-winning stunner, a B-movie disaster directed by a man who knowns that genre by heart, and a belated sequel to one of the most iconic science fiction films of all time.
The Magic School Bus is back in the new Netflix series The Magic School Bus Rides Again! Overall, it's still a nice, fun 13-episode series like we remember from when we were kids, but with some left turns. There is a pretty predictable take on climate change propaganda for little kids, but that wasn't the worst. That dubious honor goes to the episode that teaches kids that a monster will eat them if they don't use alternative clean energy sources.
Wednesday on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, the host brought on a former children’s television host to push the idea that the recent hurricanes and earthquakes were the result of manmade climate change. What made the segment even more ludicrous, was that Lemon pointed out that actual climate scientists have said these natural disasters aren’t due to climate change, but he continued pushing for that as the “root cause” anyway.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof declared that he finds President Donald Trump's tax policy to be "kind of as scary as I find him on North Korea" as he and host O'Donnell fretted over whether he has been showing enough "empathy" on both Hurricane Harvey and on tax reform. The Times columnist also showed his dissatisfaction to any presidential response to the hurricane that does not involve a discussion of "climate change."
On Friday, CNN sent out an alert for an article suggesting Americans are murderers and are responsible for the death of a woman killed in a flood. Why? Because Americans contribute to climate change. This misuse of alerts normally reserved for actual news is nothing new. CNN now promotes propaganda via mobile alerts on a regular basis.
There’s hypocrisy. Then there’s former Vice President Al Gore. For him, it’s like a superpower. Gore was the headliner for CNN’s “global town hall event” called “THE CLIMATE CRISIS.” It included moderator Anderson Cooper, Al Gore and questioners from the audience. The actual town hall took place in New York City, according to a CNN spokesperson.
On Wednesday, CNN did something they would have never done to President Obama. New Day and Newsroom highlighted tweets and news reports mocking President Trump. The tweets/reports were having fun with the fact that a tropical storm was named Don. Even the Washington Post joined in. So much for respectful journalism.
Al Gore, “movie star.” That’s what CBS national correspondent Lee Cowan thinks. Acting like a fanboy instead of a professional journalist, Cowan told former Vice President Al Gore, “You’re a movie star, in many respects.”
Late last week, the Associated Press attempted to troll President Donald Trump by claiming that his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord "may speed up" damage to his organizations' properties in Florida and other low-lying areas because of a "climate change"-driven acceleration in rising sea levels — by 2100. At the Weather Channel's Weather.com Friday evening, writer Pam Wright seemed to relish that prospect, and presented it as if it's far more than a possibility.
