Bozell Defends Networks’ Silence on ClimateGate: “Maybe They Just Don’t Know”

Alexandria, VA – For the fourteenth straight day, the three broadcast networks have failed to report on the great and growing ClimateGate scandal on their weekday morning or evening news programs. How to explain this?

Perhaps it is that ABC, NBC and CBS have not yet heard of the story, despite two weeks of non-stop reporting on and discussion of ClimateGate in a whole host of media outlets.

Perhaps the broadcast networks only trust their fellow liberal press outlets, like the New York Times. Perhaps they don’t realize the Times exhibited journalistic diligence on ClimateGate, with a front page story the day the story broke.

In the event that ABC News, NBC News and CBS News missed the news, the Media Research Center (MRC) is today rushing each of them a copy of the Times story, in the hopes that armed with this new information, they will finally report a story that has been roiling nearly everywhere else for a fortnight.

So as not to offend the networks’ pro-global warming sensibilities, MRC President Brent Bozell is looking to have the stories delivered by bicycle messenger.

They’re just doing what their manchild in the white house wants them to. They wouldn’t want to upset his cap and tax, green job agenda.

I’ve had growing suspicions that the Chicago thug tactics of the administration are running the networks and this dispels all doubts.

ABC has been totally upfront about taking their directives from the white house with the triumvirate of Stephanopoulis, Carville and Gibbs coordinating each morning what they determine will constitute that day’s news.

The administration has already publicly threatened the newspaper industry announcing their intention to “bail them out” that is take them over, if they don’t continue to publish the party line of lies that the public just isn’t buying anymore.

As we have discussed many times here at FR, it’s clearly only a matter of time before they start clamping down on the internet.

Good one! They are complicit in this "fundemental change" and the people and policies that are ruining this country. One can only hope they wither and die.

Copenhagen climate conference: World risks 4C rise even if there is a deal
The world could suffer catastrophic climate change even if there is a deal at Copenhagen, scientists have warned.

They are still beating their drums by pushing doomsday of the polar bears as the Summit nears.

Bill O’Reilly doesn’t seem too interested either, although he at least mentioned it one time.
