There’s a new study entitled, “Fire and Ice” from the Business and Media Institute, confirming what we’ve been saying all along, that the media’s been a little wishy-washy on the issue of global climate change over the past several decades. To use an 80- or 90-year time frame is not unfair, considering the earth is well over 4 billion years old. Within this relatively short time span, according to BMI, major news outlets like the New York Times and Time magazine have blown hot and cold on the topic with regularity. The fact that they are currently stuck on global warming seems to have captivated the media at the moment.
Study author Dan Gainor was on “Hannity and Colmes” on Wednesday night discussing his findings. Let’s hope it works its way into the current discourse, although since it doesn’t jibe with the current party line, that’s not terribly likely. In other words, don’t hold your breath waiting to see Gainor on CNN any time soon.
