News Corp Batting near 900 on Climate Change Derp

For Fox News, 93 percent of references to climate change were misleading, with the most common form taken being to “broadly dismiss the scientific consensus that climate change is occurring or human-induced.” For the Wall Street Journal, 81 percent of letters, op-eds, columns and editorials made were misleading. Most “attempted to broadly undermine the major conclusions of climate science. Instances of attacks on individual scientists, mocking the science, and cherry-picking data were all equally common. Instance included accusations that scientists were fudging data and claims that they are motivated by financial self-interest.”

It’s no wonder at all why the vast majority of conservatives don’t get this stuff.
