Big Media Won’t Connect Extreme Weather & Climate Change

Big Media Won’t Connect Extreme Weather & Climate Change

As extreme weather becomes increasingly common, it has received a fair share of coverage during network news broadcasts. Often missing from these reports, however, is any mention of climate change and its connection to extreme weather events. As Peter Hart reported for Extra!, the nightly news covers extreme weather events as unusual and newsworthy, but usually without explanation of climate change as an underlying cause. A study by Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) found that extreme weather events in 2013 resulted in 450 news segments, of which only sixteen mentioned climate change. As for specific evening news shows, CBS Evening News only used terms like “global warming” and “greenhouse gases” in two of 114 extreme weather reports. ABC World News only mentioned climate change in eight reports out of 200, and NBC Nightly News only mentioned it in six reports out of 136. There was also a CBS report on the unsupported notion that there had been a “pause” in global warming.

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

If news stations are unfairly and inaccurately priming viewers not to expect stories about white crime, it only serves to harden the inaccurate thesis that viewers carry with them in their hearts and minds, in the form of their implicit bias—that Black people are overly responsible for crime and should be treated with special suspicion…When media-makers get the proportions so egregiously wrong, it reinforces a culture in which the benefit of the doubt is not distributed evenly, which creates a hostile society for some and a privileged society for others. Both are harmful for all of us.

Brian Williams Suspended for False Iraq Tale, But Mainstream Media’s Real Scandal is the War Lies Spun Daily

NBC News has suspended anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay for making false statements about a 2003 incident in Iraq. Williams apologized last week after it emerged he had wrongly claimed he was on board a U.S. helicopter downed by rocket fire. American soldiers publicly challenged Williams’ account, saying he was nowhere near the aircraft that came under attack. Williams has blamed the “fog of memory” for his mistake. But in a statement, NBC said Williams’ claims were “wrong and completely inappropriate for someone in Brian’s position.” Democracy Now is joined by Norman Solomon, author of “War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death,” who talks about other media war lies.

Project Censored #22: Corporate News Media Understate Rape, Sexual Violence
