CNN anchor questions whether global warming to blame for asteroid
fox news ^ | 2/11/2013 | fox news

The threat of global warming may stretch so far beyond Earth that it affects meteorites millions of miles away in space -- at least according to one CNN anchor.

“Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.

I think we can finally put to rest the age-old question of whether the mainstream media wants intelligent reporters.

These are the people, the news media, who have a very significant role in shaping the political opinions of the casual public. They are, most often, news readers with no particular expertise on most of the topics they report - including the economy etc. They should not be shaping public opinion.

I would start by taking away news media involvement in televised political debates.

Well of course asteroids will want to come here as it gets warmer.

It is like elderly New Yorkers flocking to Florida in the winter.

Actually, George W. is a lot more responsible for the asteroid than anything else. Glad he’s gone.

Glenn Beck sidekick Pat did a wicked Algore impression:

“Well, you must understand, Deborah, that carbon dioxide buildup in the upper atmosphere creates a heightened magnetic field in the Van Allen radiation belts that may actually skew the asteroid’s trajectory, I mean, we simply cannot rule out this possibility.”

Clearly, you don’t have to have a brain to be a news reader, you just have to have a pretty face for the cameras and be able to read common English.

The pay’s good, too.

Respectfully disagree. Very guilty. She could open a beer can with her chin. Frat party value significantly reduced post graduation.

IS THERE ANYTHING GLOBAL WARMING CANNOT DO?

Light travels faster than sound. Some people look intelligent until you hear them speak.

That "question" was too incoherent and malaprop laden even to rise to the level of stupid.

Embarrassing? Supremely.

Stupid? No, it transcends stupid, it's not evidence of ignorance, but mal-education, harnessed to an utter lack of self-awareness of her own intellectual handicap.

Bet she thinks the earth is in the center of the universe, too. Better yet, that the earth is, indeed, flat.

This bimbo CNN’s Deborah Feyerick must be a genuine retard. Even a Jr-High Schooler would not ask such an embarrassing question.
Total science moron.

<sarc>There was this huge global warm up. Then the earth got a fever. Next a huge asteroid kinda like a big rock came out from space and heada right toward us. Kinda like the way a mosquito comes after you because of your body heat.

In her defense...it is tough to fit a working brain into the head of a mop.

Brains have not be redeveloped like computer processors after all...broom handles for a skeletal frame and a mop head for a skull.

Deborah Feyerick, like a majority of ‘news’ reporters are simply leftist mouthpieces -empty suits.
