The sleeping Fox catches no poultry

So it’s just as well that when it comes to the media coverage of climate change matters one Fox is wide awake. The problem is the warmists don’t like their sacred goose being cooked quite so openly.

The furore concerns Fox News, which has emailed its editorial staff insisting that they show balance when reporting on global warming matters. This has resulted in, as Alex Singleton puts it, ‘fury from The Guardian, the Huffington Post and other intellectually lazy media outlets’.  The email is reproduced in part below:

…we should refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question. It is not our place as journalists to assert such notions as facts, especially as this debate intensifies.

Spot on. Excellent journalism. How ironic that Fox News, which is routinely mocked for claiming to be fair and balanced, is being pilloried for being just that when reporting about climate change and actually doing what public service broadcasters like the BBC should do as a matter of course.

I hold no brief for Fox News, but Fox are factually correct in what they are saying. And while it might infuriate Al Gore, George Monbiot and other propagandists, it is only proper that viewers understand there is a significant counter argument and that the assertions from the warmists are only theories. One can’t imagine why other media outlets are trying to hide this fact…
