Clean energy is part of the solution: Our friends from American Conservation Coalition Campus, the American Conservation Coalition’s advocacy arm, rolled out a week-long ad campaign airing on Fox News, emphasizing the importance of clean energy to the coronavirus recovery efforts. “How we rebuild is how we’ll be remembered,” the narrator states. “Join the young conservatives fighting […]

A new report from Media Matters found a handful of major national insurance companies are “top sponsors” of Fox News, staying loyal to the station’s climate and COVID-19 denial even after many major brands have dropped the channel due to its embrace of white supremacism. By Climate Denier Roundup As the report points out, the insurance […]
This week, the Washington Post won a Pulitzer prize for its excellent explanatory reporting on climate change, and a bunch of other great climate and environment stories were recognized as finalists. Unfortunately, TV news has yet to catch up with their written counterparts. By Climate Denier Roundup Also last week, Media Matters for America released a report on the state […]
That the Koch-funded Daily Caller is more of a right wing propaganda machine than a news outlet is hardly a novel conclusion, but we would be remiss not to highlight a video post from last week. The aim of the piece is to accuse Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of hypocrisy. The Caller’s headline asks why AOC drives to work when she doesn’t have to, […]
By Jeremy Bloom The man the GOP leadership crammed down the reluctant craw of the GOP base in 2012 just gave a fiery speech in which he tried to browbeat the GOP base into letting the GOP establishment cram another milqtoast down their craws. (You can see the full video and text at the bottom of […]
Three headlines this week drove home a point that I often make when discussing politics with friends. That point is a psychological phenomenon known as confirmation bias (a subset of cognitive bias), and it’s one of the most powerful forces at play in the world today, especially with regard to the increasing extremism of the Republican party […]
Did global warming drive US temperatures to their highest levels ever last year? Was 2013 the hottest ever? Sure, a whole boatload of mainstream scientists and the government agency that maintains the records says 2012 was the hottest ever (for the contiguous US). But that’s not good enough for the Rupurt Murdoch and his gang […]
It’s a great headline, isn’t it? Carries menacing implications of jack-booted thugs, militant attacks and wanton destruction. There’s only one problem – it’s not true. Yes, another bunch of Occupy Wall Street protesters got a little carried away, engaged in behavior inside the branch that should have been kept outside, and someone actually threw a […]
Harry Potter is well on his way to total global domination (of the box office) just as Rupert Murdoch, the Dark Lord of Fleet Street, appears to be losing his domination of global media.
Murdoch – owner of Fox News and the Wall Street Journal in America and similarly right-wing news outlets in England and his original home, Australia – has fallen over a major wiretapping scandal.
Like Voldemort, the man who once made Ministers (of the Exchequer, if not Magic) tremble is trying to save the last of his crumbling empire as his aides drop like smashed horcruxes.
Media Matters studied news reports on greenhouse gas regulation by the EPA. Not surprisingly, 76 percent of the guests the networks brought on to speak were against acting on climate change. It’s no wonder Americans are confusing on the issue, and support for action has been dropping.
But the full story is even worse. Check out the chart above, and the thing that jumps out: It’s only Fox News and Fox Business that are even talking about this. The so-called liberal media hasn’t had the balls to even mention the issue on the air.
Like I said in my previous post… a small number of greedy and stupid people are keeping us from living in paradise.
It’s good of them to continuously remind us of just who they are.
How does bullshit propagate on the Internet? Easily. Some guy says something crazy – like “Justin Bieber loves him Sharia Law” or “Most scientists don’t believe in global warming.” Then a few people repeat it. Suddenly it’s everywhere. And for well-meaning folks who haven’t actually looked that deeply into things, it just looks like there’s […]
Why do we have commenters here at Red Green & Blue saying things like, “Most scientists don’t believe in climate change”? Because Fox News misinforms the public. A new study from the University of Maryland (PDF) found that while in general folks who watched news were better informed about issues, there was an exception: “…they […]
What Ever Happened to the Lawsuit Brought by Weather Channel Founder Against Al Gore over Global Warming?
Coleman made headlines last year with a series of op-eds saying that 30,000 scientists (only 9,000 of whom actually have PhDs) wanted to sue Al Gore over the fraud.
My questions is this: how is that lawsuit coming Mr. Coleman?
Apparently Fox News tele-pundit and GOP cheerleader, Dick Morris, thinks the only way people will consider him relevant is if he tells everyone that he was once an adviser to President Bill Clinton.
