Networks Have Ignored ‘End’ Of Global Warming

From the Washington Examiner:

Mainstream media eager to lap up, promote Obama’s climate change agenda

By PAUL BEDARD | June 25, 2013

Media Research Center’s Business and Media Institute [reports] that so far this year the Big Three broadcast channels have done 92 stories promoting the hazards and fears of global warming and climate change, not once noting what the New York Times called a "lull in warming." …

The report said that ABC, CBS and NBC "have spent years promoting global warming alarmism."

The key findings:

— Recent years’ slowdown in global warming completely ignored by networks 92 climate change stories in 2013.

— Stories citing experts or the latest studies promoting alarmism get covered more than 8 times as often as critical experts and studies.

— Although many scientists say no, ABC, CBS and NBC continue to link weather events like tornadoes, hurricanes, heat waves and more to climate change nearly one-fourth of the time.

One example cited by the group was NBC’s January 8 report. "News anchor Brian Williams mentioned a new report on the cost of extreme weather saying ‘natural disasters caused a total of $160 billion damage around the world in 2012 … These new numbers coincide with a new official look at just how hot our past year was.’ Anne Thompson followed up his introduction by linking the ‘year of extreme weather’ to "nature and man made climate change."

Dan Gainor, vice president of Business and Culture for the Media Research Center, said… "The nation’s most prominent liberal newspaper admits that we’ve hit a ‘warming plateau’ and the networks still ignore it…"

Gainor continued: "Almost as bad, nearly one-fourth of the stories tied weather to climate. This is the game the left and media have played for years. They claim every weather event – snow, drought, floods, hurricanes and tornadoes … or the lack of those – can be linked to climate change. Even though reputable scientists constantly remind us that weather and climate are not the same…"

The problem is if the news media stopped parroting these lies, the Democrat’s ‘green’ money laundering operation might dry up.
