What Does He Know, Anyway?

Sure, he started the Weather Channel, but what the hell does this guy know about Global Warming? Well, this:

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by
it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM.

If only he'd just tell us how he feels, instead of dancing around the subject like that.

In stories about Republicans, on the other hand, the tone was positive

The study also discovered that newspaper stories "tended to be focused
more on political matters and less on issues and ideas than the media overall.
In all, 71% of newspaper stories concentrated on the 'game,' compared with 63%
