Liberal News Again Not Reporting News...Your thoughts..

12 Days, 3 Networks and No Mention of ClimateGate Scandal. Even as Copenhagen looms, broadcast news ignores e-mails suggesting warming alarmists 'manipulated' data, conspired to destroy information and thwarted peer reviews. It’s been nearly two weeks since a scandal shook many people’s faith in the scientists behind global warming alarmism. The scandal forced the University of East Anglia (UK) to divulge that it threw away raw temperature data and prompted the temporary resignation of Phil Jones of the university’s Climate Research Unit. Despite that resignation and calls by a U.S. senator to investigate the matter, ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news programming has remained silent.The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and Associated Press have deemed ClimateGate worthy of reporting, but the networks were too busy reporting on celebrity car accidents and the killer whale.

  • Yea, it's absurd. They are willing to fool Americans in spending hundreds of trillions of tax payer dollars on climate change when there is a growing case of falsified data. At least Gore and his cronies (one of which is NBC exec, Emmelt) will continue to get rich off of Americans.. All for a theory that they had to lie and manipulate data to make their case.

  • NBC won't report too much on it. They are owned by GE who stads to profit quite well if cap and trade passes.

  • Those networks focus on important news like Tiger Woods martial woes, Rosie O'Donnell's break-up with her wife, whoever and whatever Lindsey Lohan is doing, and other vital things like that. They don't have time for trifling little things like political scandals and falsified science data.

  • Maybe there is no "Climategate".
    It exists in the minds of the far-right extremeists who deny there is a problem , that there IS global warming,because they are not strong enough to face the problems.

  • The media is only as liberal as the conservatives that own it. Maybe Tiger Woods's affairs are obviously more important. The best way to find news is not to watch it at all and look for it.

  • You should be referring to it as corporate news and it is no different than the other corporate news stations.

    Corporate news is crap. Doesn't matter if it leans right or leans left. It represents the interest of the sponsors and the only thing that is important is ratings.
