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.

FBI Informant Exposes Sting Operation Targeting Innocent Americans in New “(T)ERROR” Documentary

“(T)EFFOR” is an explosive new film that shines a bright light on the FBI’s shadowy use of informants in its counterterrorism sting operations. These undercover operatives are meant to root out would-be terrorists before they attack. Since 9/11, they have been used to prosecute at least 158 people. But critics argue they often target the wrong people, “including those with intellectual and mental disabilities, and the indigent.”

Most people might not understand where this euphoric feeling comes from, but in my opinion, it comes from an innately spiritual place.

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.
