Spring 2006 has been swamped with climate change hype in every type of media – books, newspapers, magazines, online, TV and even movies.

One-time presidential candidate Al Gore, a patron saint of the environmental movement, is releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” in book and movie form, warning,“Our ability to live is what is at stake.”

Despite all the historical shifting from one position to another, many in the media no longer welcome opposing views on the climate. CBS reporter Scott Pelley went so far as to compare climate change skeptics with Holocaust deniers.

“If I do an interview with [Holocaust survivor] Elie Wiesel,” Pelley asked,“am I required as a journalist to find a Holocaust denier?” he said in an interview on March 23 with CBS News’s PublicEye blog.

He added that the whole idea of impartial journalism just didn’t work for climate stories.“There becomes a point in journalism where striving for balance becomes irresponsible,” he said.

Pelley’s comments ignored an essential point: that 30 years ago, the media were certain about the prospect of a new ice age. And that is only the most recent example of how much journalists have changed their minds on this essential debate.

Some in the media would probably argue that they merely report what scientists tell them, but that would be only half true.

Journalists decide not only what they cover; they also decide whether to include opposing viewpoints. That’s a balance lacking in the current “debate.”

This isn’t a question of science. It’s a question of whether Americans can trust what the media tell them about science.

At least the tides will have turned by 2016. With a two-term Democratic president on his way out and Hillary the promising contender, the opposition has two more years to hone in on her health issues, age and lack of accomplishments and/or incompetency (legitimate and above board concerns and criticisms) before the media has time to sharpen their knives and carve up any and all emerging conservative contenders.
And, of course, lie...cheat...steal...whatever .
Good morning everyone.
Liberal Media Networks are in full gear promoting Hog Thighs Hillary. She was on Bah-Bah- Walters this morning. The NY Times is promoting her while slamming any Conservative critics calling their complaints a "smear campaign".

I also heard that Monica Lewinsky will become a regular on The View.

A HUGE panel of airhead bimbos has just gotten larger.

I hope Monica gives demonstrations.

Fox News and the Hillary Clinton ‘faking’ outrage

In the clip below, George Stephanopoulos of ABC News’s “This Week” turns his attention to the various allegations on Fox News that Hillary Clinton had faked her illness. How to explain the rash of such charges, he asks Fox News host Greta Van Susteren. In her response, Van Susteren suggests that she’s not paid to be a spokeswoman for Fox News:“I’m responsible for what I say, No. 1,” she says, clarifying that she was never a Clinton-is-ill doubter.

Van Susteren was anchoring Fox News’s air on the night of Dec. 17, when John Bolton uttered his never-to-be-forgotten charge that Clinton had come down with a “diplomatic illness” to avoid testifying before Congress regarding Benghazi, Libya. That was two days after the secretary was reported to have suffered a concussion — and a couple of weeks before she checked into a New York hospital to treat a blood clot in her head related to her “diplomatic illness.”

Though Van Susteren had written a blog post criticizing those who used Fox News airtime to question the gravity of Clinton’s illness, she strikes a different tone in her appearance on Sunday with Stephanopoulos. She says that the “faking” club members raised their concerns at a time when there was “not much information coming out of the State Department.”

Another sign of trouble: Van Susteren suggests that the blood clot report cleared everything up:“Once these people heard that she was seriously ill, that all changed,” she tells Stephanopoulos. Meaning, the doubters weren’t impressed by the report of the concussion that came out on Dec. 15; they were impressed by the report of a blood clot that surfaced before New Year’s. Does the secretary of state really have to check into a hospital before people will believe claims that she’s ailing?

In toto, Van Susteren’s comments amount to a failure to acknowledge the ghastliness of the faking allegations that crowded Fox News’s pre-Christmas programming. All the conditions are in place for an apology from Fox News, except for the courage. Whenever the secretary’s health becomes a topic of conversation in the coming years, pundits will remember Fox News’s “coverage” of the matter, along with its post-facto shamelessness.

You probably aren't old enough to remember the 2008 democratic primaries. Or Hillary's embarrassment when the liberal moderator put her on the spot having to explain why she lied about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996.
Trust me. It happened. I've watched both the democratic and republican primaries as well as both conventions for nine presidential elections.
Guess liberals don't pay attention if they have their talking points from the propagandist websites.

Of course Obama lied and said it "wouldn't have a major impact"

Another Obama & Democrat lie, just like the other ones.

Alan Grayson Ready And Willing To Serve On Benghazi Panel

The advocacy group Credo Mobile has launched a petition asking Pelosi to appoint Grayson as the one and only Democratic member of the Benghazi committee. The effort has already attracted nearly 20,000 supporters in just two days.

Pelosi's office said it does not have any updates on the status of the Benghazi appointments.

In his interview on Friday, Grayson said Republicans were focusing on Benghazi simply to avoid talking about more important issues.

"They still think that there's some political gain to be gotten here because they don't want to talk about unemployment, they have no answers," he said. "They don't want to talk about health care, they have no answers. They don't want to talk about education, or housing, or benefits, or pensions, or anything that is real in the lives of the American people. They have no answers. So instead, what they do is they try to embarrass the administration over and over again. Instead what they do is embarrass themselves."

Republicans Go Berserk and Accuse Scientists of Bullying Them With Facts

There is no hope of convincing climate change deniers that scientists, or science, is not their enemy and they will likely go to the grave hating science and the scientists attempting to save their pathetic lives from the effects of climate change. The reality is their contempt for science and scientists is very selective because they love the science that discovered and developed technological and medical advancements that make their pathetic lives better. If there was any real justice, they would be forbidden from using anything science and scientists are responsible for until they admitted their only problem with science is that they are intimidated by it because they are too stupid and superstitious to understand it.

College campuses are becoming the hot bed of intolerance and stupidity
"It’s the week before finals at the University of St. Thomas. Student leaders thought they’d come up with the perfect way to end the school year: by bringing a camel to campus.
They assumed that stressed-out students would jump at the chance to pose for photos, and generally hang out, with a large, furry humped animal.
But last week the plan was abruptly scrapped after opponents mounted a protest on Facebook, saying it was not only a waste of money, but insensitive and possibly racist as well.
The event — called “Hump Day”— was organized by the Residence Hall Association, a student social committee,“to have a little fun, bring students together,” said Aaron Macke, the group’s adviser."

"...insensitive and possibly racist as well."?????

They should have asked Reggie Love and Larry Sinclair to show up for Hump Day.

...but Eric Racist Holder would've put a stop to that, too, as a racist act.
