Remind me again what the common denominator is again between Fox News and the Wall Street Journal? Rupert Murdoch may have bought his way into US nationality but he certainly doesn’t understand traditional American values. Believing in science and facts used to be a matter of pride in America but Murdoch’s distorted view has been a radical and unhealthy addition to the American way.
This trend of promoting lies by the Murdoch empire has to change. It’s hurting America, but Murdoch’s mission has nothing to do with helping the country. Much like Mitt Romney, Murdoch’s mission is to make money. It’s sick, but for him, the best way to accomplish that goal appears to be distorting reality.
Primetime coverage of global warming at Fox News is overwhelmingly misleading, according to a new report that finds the same is true of climate change information in the Wall Street Journal op-ed pages.
Both outlets are owned by Rupert Murdoch’s media company News Corporation. The analysis by the science-policy nonprofit Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) finds that 93 percent of primetime program discussions of global warming on Fox News are inaccurate, as are 81 percent of Wall Street Journal editorials on the subject.
“It’s like they were writing and talking about some sort of bizarre world where climate change isn’t happening,” study author Aaron Huertas, a press secretary at UCS, told LiveScience.
