How the Media is attacking and is being attacked

I am going to compile stories from NewsBusters.org about the recent attacks to and from the media. I know, my readers, again, I have not been blogging for a while; I’m trying to get us set up here on the mountain for the winter. Ya know hauling food, ect… Sorry. I am in Chipmunk/Squirrel mode. He, He, He. Soooo let’s begin.

From Newsbusters;

NBC’s Brian Williams allocated a few seconds Thursday night to how a new Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey discovered the percent of Americans who, in his words, “believe there’s solid evidence of global warming…has dropped off significantly” while “the number of people who say they don’t believe in climate change at all has doubled in that time.” (If it’s a scientific issue, what does “belief” have to do with it?)

But instead of crediting Americans for recognizing the media-fueled case global warming is a threat has been undermined by reality since global temperatures have not risen an iota since 1998, Williams attributed the change to how “in a down economy, people are less sensitive to the environment.”

Serious Dumb Ass commentator. Let’ move on to the next one.

Just when you thought the White House couldn’t possibly do anything to make their bizarre feud with the Fox News Channel an even larger spectacle – the administration manages to take it to another level. On the Oct. 22 broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” host Bret Baier revealed a White House pool announcement was offering Kenneth Feinberg, the “Special Master for Compensation,” better known as the White House “pay czar” for interviews – all except for one network – Fox News.

Serious Dumb Ass White House. And then there is this.

Is there no depth MSNBC’s Chris Matthews won’t sink to?
Judging from a truly disgraceful comment he made on Thursday’s “Hardball,” the answer has got to be a resounding “NO!
MATTHEWS: That’s not fair. The group in this country that most resembles the Taliban, ironically, is the religious right.

I show you, my readers, then let you decide.:)

  1. I know this is random, but I read “down” in the first quote as a reference to birds and thought to myself, “Well duh–people are less sensitive to the environment than birds are.” Haha. It is an interesting point, though, that he’s making. I wasn’t aware that a lot of people are turning away from global warming beliefs.
