CNN said what??

February 21, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

This isn’t some politician supported by the oil industry. This isn’t even Fox News. This is a host on CNN questioning if climate change is real:1

CNN host asks if climate change is real. You know it is real. Help UCS do something about it.

 

The tweet above promoted a program with climate science mis-informer Marc Morano, who’s worked for Rush Limbaugh and Sen. Jim Inhofe, and encourages people to send nasty emails to harass climate scientists.2 (He says scientists “deserve to be publicly flogged.”3) And CNN gave him a platform.

Despite the fact that most of its coverage of climate science is accurate, CNN programs still feature misleading “debates” about scientific realities. UCS is crunching the numbers to show just how often cable news programs get the science wrong—whether it’s questioning the reality of climate change or overstating the relationship between climate change and extreme weather events. Now we need your help to make sure these influential networks get the science right.
