"When we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audience's part."

No doubt you would have been shouting the loudest when Bush sent in the troops to Iraq looking for WMD's. Rational voters would have known that was a hoax,

What a joke, if you google this, the only hits you get are right wing blogs. No genuine news outlets and like most of the tea party people, here is a old man who became senile and went to the dark side. Making NON factual statements that have zero credibility that are trademark tea bagging behaviour.

Oh I'm sorry this so called story gets a run on Fox News & Rush Limbaugh's site. They would be considered credible news sites wouldn't they ?

sorry, son, consensus has nothing to do with scientific methodology....in fact it's the opposite. especially on late night comedy....and when the pseudoscience hasn't even been tested.

You could do yourself no harm to watch the video link below which is an interview with one of the global crisis scientists who contributes to the IPCC reports dispelling all the myths the flat earther's put up. Including all the favourites like temps flat lining for the past 17 years, what the tipping point means and exactly why we need to reduce our emissions dramatically.
He even gives your favourite person Big Al a rap for his efforts in selling the message.

The first 15 mins is just a bit of a personal bio then he talks about climate & it's impact on our environment right down to the krill population.

CNN head doesn't pretend to care about news and defend the Democrat agenda instead:

"Climate change is one of those stories that deserves more attention, that we all talk about," Zucker said, "but we haven't figured out how to engage the audience in that story in a meaningful way. When we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audience's part."

And will it cover the special committee hearings by House Republicans to probe the 2012 Benghazi embassy attack? Zucker told Carter he didn't know yet.

"We're not going to be shamed into it by others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums to shame other news organizations into covering something," he said. "If it's of real news value, we'll cover it."

If you deniers could only see and hear how stupid you come across.

Since you don't have the science on your side, you point to everything else under the sun, most all of it liberal, and use "Benghazi" for punctuation.

Sorry, guys, but science isn't a left-wing conspiracy.

And if you could see how using "deniers" makes you sound antisemitic. That word means people who deny the Shoah and the genocide of six million Jews.

Let me ask you, G.C.(forgot original password); does Israel have the right to exist as a Jewish state?
