Why Media Matters Doesn’t

December 16, 2010

The George Soros-funded, out-to-get-Fox-News and generally-lamebrained Media Matters is claiming that Fox editor Bill Sammon committed the grave felony of urging climate skepticism to Fox staff in a December 2009 e-mail. Sammon, of course, did nothing of the sort. The e-mail in question reads:

“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, especially as this debate intensifies.”

Rather than urging skepticism, Sammon merely advised reporters to treat claims about global warming as what they are — claims that are disputed. Sammon correctly noted that a journalist’s job is to report the facts rather than to decide what they are.

This is apparently too a subtle distinction for the comrades at Media Mutters.

    Media matters actually employs people who censor their comment section. It takes them a while to read them, but then, if they discover one that opposes their liberal agenda, they simply delete it. But what “fairness” can we expect of currency-manipulator George Soros?

    If you want to rattle a liberal hit him with the truth. The physics of the matter is very simple and even the IPCC report Physics Section says the CO2 quantity changes follow the temperature changes. This totally dashes the “blame CO2” concept to say nothing of Jim Hansen’s ideas that require tiny pilots on molecules, Divine or Satanic intervention.
