No "Notion" of Climate Change Here, Thanks

Abby Zimet

Fox News is at it again. Their boss sent out an urgent memo
ordering "reporters" not to say the planet's warming without
"IMMEDIATELY" noting that only wacko lefty huckster scientists say it
is. This, after a Fox correspondent reported on air that U.N.
meteorologists called last year "the warmest on record." From Media Matters.

"Given the controversy over the veracity of climate change data...We
should refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or
cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such
theories are based upon data that critics have called into question. It
is not our place as journalists to assert such notions as facts..."
