The Media’s Silent Scandal

December 3, 2009

From my new article at Right Bias:

If a scandal isn’t reported by the media, does that mean it never happened?

CNN chimed in, reporting their own shocking headlines: Sea Level Rise Could Cost Port Cities $28 Trillion. Remember, this ‘news’ story was published after evidence had come to light that credibly challenged the very facts CNN was reporting. Yawn.

For the millions of Americans who don’t watch Fox News or listen to talk radio, the answer is a resounding yes.

Last Friday, November 20, evidence came to light that “appears to show a conspiracy to falsify data and suppress academic debate in order to exaggerate the possible threat of man-made global warming.” Translation: The global warming movement rests almost entirely on the IPCC’s claim to represent the “consensus” of climate science. That entire movement now stands discredited.In the face of this absolutely shameful and possibly criminal revelation of chicanery, deceit and manipulation of data, the mainstream media has stuck to their decades long policy of ignoring any evidence or opinion that challenges their firm belief that the world is undergoing a climate crisis. A crisis that can only be rectified if all global citizens drastically change their behavior.

Despite these revelations, the AP’s science writer continued reporting on the worsening climate non-crisis, “Since the 1997 international accord to fight global warming, climate change has worsened and accelerated — beyond some of the grimmest of warnings made back then.” Scary stuff, if it were true.

Read the rest here.

    While our government continues to squander taxpayer’s money, I wonder how much longer investors will tolerate certain news outlets to do the the same. From what I gather, many readers are scrambling to the right where people know the lie doesn’t prevail. CNN can’t even interpret their own polls.

    Would it not be most prudent in looking into the massive financial gain of Mr. Gore and affiliates to better determine motive? Yeah, yeah…I know Al Gore has ‘dedicated’ his life to preserving and maintaining our dying planet and has a truly genuine agenda. This sentiment would be extremely effective in convincing a kindergarten class of Mr. Gore’s charitable endeavors however, any mildly educated adult sees it as laughable…

      The $100’s of millions is just his own personal cross…I suppose. Poor guy. So misunderstood. So…full of it.

    The media will NEVER talk about it. Especially, NBC. Are you kidding, General Electric which is the parent company that owns NBC, has billions upon billions in the alternate energy business (heh, sound’s like Capone after prohibition came into law), and if Cap-and-Trade goes into law, GE will get bigger, NBC News might not be greater but will be much highly funded. NBC is an ally of CNN, so you can’t trust either one of them. When you have a dog in a fight, you want that dog to win. NBC’s dog is global warming. If NBC and CNN can produce (this is probably want they think) enough information and scare tactics on global warming, maybe they can “prove” it. Yet, as these e-mails become more and more public, it will show people around the world that Global Warming is a load of bull. Oh guess what? It’s already happening. In Australia, where its very pro-Global Warming, the Australian Senate voted down their version of Cap-and-Trade. This is just gonna get better and better, as people ask for Freedom of Information Act and they say “oh we don’t have it anymore, it’s been destroyed” it will make a lot less people believe ever in Global Warming. As they try to produce facts about global warming, they are just losing ratings. Here’s an analogy. More stories for global warming NBC and CNN does, the lower the ratings and lower the belief in global warming.

    You really made me smile when you wrote:

    “If a scandal isn’t reported by the media, does that mean it never happened?”

    You reminded me of the empiricism of Bishop Berkeley, who wrote:

    “There was a young man who said God,
    Must find it exceedingly odd,
    To think that this tree,
    Would continue to be,
    When there’s no one about in the quad”

    It took quite a while before anyone could answer him in kind, but Bertrand Russell eventually did when he wrote:

    “Young man, your question’s exceedingly odd,
    Since I’m always about in the quad,
    You will see that this tree continues to be,
    Since observed by your’s faithfully, God.”

    I may be a bit off on some of the words, but this is the first time I’ve been reminded of those poems since the mid 1960’s when I was a philosophy major at NYU…

    Good Article Nancy!

    Big ole arrogant AL thought he was in a poker game with all the Aces up his sleeve when he laid all his cards down and called it….”the debate is over” . The big wolf in sheeps clothing hath spoken and thought it was ‘end of story’ .

    But this goes to prove with real FACTS and STATS, the debate is not over…but Arrogant Al’s game is, and he is n0t alone. All those unconscionable Scientists selling their Soul to Big Bro and in bed with the Fed will have ‘global warming’ alright…THEY HAVE HELL YET TO PAY…!

      Don’t get over confidant about this.

      They’re just going to brush most of the criticism aside, and keep going unless we do far more than we’ve done so far to stop them…

      We need to drive a stake through their hearts, and I believe that the only way we can do that is by exposing the 2 big basic lies that their entire ridiculous game is based on.

      Everyone seems to be missing the BIGGEST PART OF THE BIG LIE, and it’s so incredibly simple that it’s been staring us all right in the face from the very beginning.

      Warming is good… it’s NOT bad !!!

      There’s absolutely nothing about global warming that threatens life in any way whatsoever. Like everything else we hear from our government, and the media elites in recent years, the truth is the exact opposite of what they tell us. Warming is good. All forms of life flourish when the planet is warm, and people have always starved to death when it’s cold. The only type of climate change that we should be concerned about is extreme cooling, and there’s nothing that we can do about it in either case other than learn to adapt ourselves to it.

      Equally absurd is the idea that CO2 has any meaninful, let alone significant effect on global temperatures. As soon as one understands that man made CO2 represents only 0.0025% of the atmosphere, the entire CO2 argument becomes obviously false as well. You don’t have to be a scientist to understand any of this. All you need is some basic common sense. CO2 is plant food for gosh’s sake, it’s not a pollutant!

      The British High Court found 9 major lies in Gore’s science fiction thriller “An Inconvenient Truth” in fact there are many more, which everyone should learn about. It’s all laid out in Lord Monckton’s response to the Court’s ruling. I urge everyone to read it which is why I added a link to it below. It’s entitled:

      35 INCONVENIENT TRUTHS, The Errors in Al Gore’s Movie

      We can’t afford to become complacent just because the eMails from CRU have been leaked.

      Don’t forget that we’re but the few who are hearing about this. The rest of the electorate knows only what the Lame Stream Media is telling them, and they’re NOT telling them about this at all… They suppressed the news about the tea parties & the march on Washington, and they’re doing the same thing here.

    Any debate contrary to the Gore is over before it starts. Remember the reporter who questioned him on fact and got the mic turned off? Polar bears anyone?

      Gore’s been a lying POS since he was a student.

      If you want to know about his first MAJOR public lie, look up what he said about his military service in Vietnam when he was fighting Clinton for the nomination in 1992.

      It’s a disgusting pack of lies!

    Facts don’t matter. All that matters is that you “feel” something to be true, and then it is!

    Wish that worked for me. I’d love to “feel” I have a job and therefore money, but it just ain’t happening.

      Might I suggest a “Global Cooling Scam” if you’re looking for something to make ends meet.
      You name4 your boat, “Hot Tub”.

          there was no profit in “cooling” so they turned to “warming.”

    Is it true that if you don’t report something it never happened?

      It’s the complete philosophy of CNN & MSNBC, among some others. Must be true. It just amazes me how much “stuff” didn’t actually happen.
