A footnote on the climate emergency and US rightwing disinformation about it.
Fox News and the Wall Street Journal are both owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.
The Union of Concerned Scientists has rated their coverage of climate science in 2012. Big surprise. 93% of Fox News items on climate science were misleadingly false. 81% of Wall Street Journal opinion page pieces on climate science were misleadingly false.
Here's a sample from Fox News, 23 March 2012: “The green energy stuff—I mean, that’s—that’s all a hoax and a fraud based on another hoax and fraud, global warming.”
If you're smart enough to run a popular TV network or newspaper, there's just one way you can be so wrong so often. Deliberately.
