CNN Uses Tragedy as a Political Weapon

Under the leadership of Jeff Zucker, we have all witnessed CNN turn into The PornTragedy Network, a ghoulish reality show channel that grabs hold of human disasters and milks them dry.

That’s bad enough, but CNN goes even further. If you are paying attention, you will see that every tragedy is also exploited by CNN into a political weapon to be used against their enemies on the Right.
Even before Zucker, when more than a dozen children were massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary, CNN went all in on gun control. Not because any gun control law ever proposed would have stopped this mass murder; not because gun control had anything to do with a sick, twisted, evil young man gunning down a bunch of school children. No, CNN’s approach here is purely partisan…
CNN used a pile of dead elementary schoolchildren — not to find a solution to ensure such an abomination never happens again — but as a way to put Republicans, gun-lovers, the NRA, and everyone else CNN hates on automatic defense.
Instead of addressing mental health issues, how gun-free zones attract mass-shooters, asking why in God’s name we leave our children unguarded, or merely waiting for the facts, CNN brings up guns.
After the Zucker era began, CNN did the same with Trayvon Martin in a major way. A black teenager is shot in self defense by a Hispanic male. Immediately, CNN is attacking Stand Your Ground laws — which, again, didn’t have anything to do with anything involved in the shooting. Stand Your Ground wasn’t even part of Zimmerman’s defense.
But by manufacturing a narrative around Stand Your Ground, CNN could bring Republicans and conservatives into the studio to berate them and put them in a rhetorical box — you either oppose Stand Your Ground or YOU HATE BLACK PEOPLE.
CNN was able to bring race into the Trayvon Martin shooting by lying about George Zimmerman’s race. Instead of reporting Zimmerman is Hispanic, CNN dishonestly (and intentionally) described him as white.
Within minutes of the Amtrak derailment, CNN was feasting on the dead over the issue of infrastructure. Not only did CNN refuse once again to wait for the facts, in the end, we discovered that infrastructure didn’t have anything to do with anything. Amtrak had all the safety equipment necessary. It was bureaucracy that stopped it from getting installed on time.
Once that became known, CNN dropped the Amtrak story.
Even though some CNN obsessive news coverage about ineffectual government bureaucracy might save lives, those lives aren’t important enough to CNN for them to question the effectiveness of the bloated federal government.
Regardless, for at least a couple of days CNN was able to jiu jitsu the dead bodies of a tragic train crash into an attack against the Right by screaming INFRASTRUCTURE. Either you agreed with CNN that untold billions needed to be immediately spent by our bloated federal government on infrastructure or you wanted people to die in train accidents.

Remember ABC's Climate Predictions for 2015? Climate Hoaxers Wrong Again

New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12,  2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.
The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, "It's June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99." (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction for the current year: "Gas reached over $9 a gallon." (In reality, gas costs an average of $2.75.) 
On June 12, 2008, correspondent Bob Woodruff revealed that the program "puts participants in the future and asks them to report back about what it is like to live in this future world. The first stop is the year 2015."  

As one expert warns that in 2015 the sea level will rise quickly, a visual shows New York City being engulfed by water. The video montage includes another unidentified person predicting that "flames cover hundreds of miles." 
Then-GMA co-anchor Chris Cuomo appeared frightened by this future world. He wondered, "I think we're familiar with some of these issues, but, boy, 2015? That's seven years from now. Could it really be that bad?" 
Ultimately, ABC delayed the air-date for Earth 2100 and the one-hour show didn't debut until June 2, 2009. The program showcased the terrible impact of global warming from 2015 through 2100. In the special, a "storm of the century" wiped out Miami. Other highlights included a destroyed New York City and an abandoned Las Vegas. By 2084, Earth's population will apparently be just 2.7 billion. 
On June 13, 2008, promoted the special by hyperventilating, "Are we living in the last century of our civilization?" Unlike the 2015 predictions, that suggestion hasn't (yet) been proven wrong.
Seven years later, the network has quietly ignored its horribly inaccurate predictions about 2015. When it comes to global warming claims, apparently results don't matter for ABC.

No Global Warming in over 18 Years but we still have Global Warming

Probably the fact that there has now been no “global warming” for 18 years and six months. Not only does this contradict all the doomladen climate models cited in the IPCC’s various reports – none of them predicted the so-called “Pause” – but it also means that not one of the kids in school being fed climate propaganda by their on-message teachers has ever personally lived during a time of global warming.

So it’s quite understandable that – just as they tried to do with the “Medieval Warming Period” and also “the decline” (which proved so troubling to Michael Mann and his pals) – the alarmists are doing their damnedest to write the “Pause” (or, if you will, “hiatus”) out of scientific history.

And now they’ve done it!

Or so the journal Science tells us in a new paper being greeted with a predictably rapturous reception by the usual suspects at the Guardian, the BBC and the New York Times.
Here, for example, is Pravda’s take:
The so-called hiatus has been touted by non-scientists who reject mainstream climate science.

Those claims have resonated; two years ago, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change felt the need to explain why the Earth was not heating up as expected, listing such reasons as volcanic eruptions, reduced solar radiation and the oceans absorbing more heat.

“The reality is that there is no hiatus,” said Tom Karl, director of the National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, North Carolina. He is the lead author of a study published Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Science
So that’s it then, is it? Game over for the deniers, now dramatically disarmed of their most powerful weapon by “the Science”?

Er, not quite, no, as this exquisitely damning rebuttal from the Global Warming Policy Forum makes clear.

The thrust of Karl’s paper is this: that far from staying flat since 1998, global temperatures have carried on rising. It’s just that scientists haven’t noticed before because they’ve been looking in the wrong place – on land, rather than in the sea where all the real heat action is happening.

And how did Karl et al notice what everyone else has missed until now? Well, by using a specialised scientific technique called “getting your excuses in early before the Paris climate conference in December.”

Essentially, this technique involves making adjustments to the raw temperature data (sound familiar?) and discovering – lo! – that the sceptics were wrong and the alarmists were right all along.
