Surprise! Management at Fox Cable “News” instructed journalists to spin reporting on climate change by casting doubt on the indisputable fact that the world has warmed over the past 50 years. This according to Media Matters, which got hold of a memo by Bill Sammon,
‘ questioning the “veracity of climate change data” and ordering the network’s journalists to “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.” ‘
In fact, the scientific consensus is quite clear on the warming trend, and also clear that it is caused by the massive dumping by industrialized human beings of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.
