InsideClimate Speculates

InsideClimate News Publishes Story Based Entirely on Speculation By Aly Nielsen InsideClimate News may have won a Pulitzer Prize, but it looks like it skipped Journalism 101: report, don’t speculate. InsideClimate writer David Hasemyer reported on May 23, that ExxonMobil lost an appeal “to keep records held by its auditors” from New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's investigation. InsideClimate repeatedly promoted the story on Twitter since that day. However, far from just reporting the update to the legal battle Hasemyer...

Media Promote Climate Echo Chamber

Media Outlets Promote Climate Change Echo Chamber By Aly Nielsen Liberal nonprofits reflect the biases of their donors. So when supposedly unbiased media outlets build relationships with those nonprofits, they blur the lines between activism and reporting. The “journalistic collaboration” Climate Desk is a perfect example. It acts like a liberal echo chamber of climate alarmism, with multiple outlets running the exact same story to increase its reach. For-profit media outlets including The Atlantic, The Guardian and Newsweek, partnered with...

Soros Funded Climate March Groups

People’s Climate March Steering Committee Got $36 Million from Soros By Aly Nielsen The “People’s Climate March,” scheduled for the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, claims to be a movement of the people. But is it really? It turns out one-third of the steering committee organizations have one thing in common — donations from George Soros. The liberal billionaire gave them more than $36 million combined. So far the broadcast networks have not made the connection. Between 2000 and...

Media Pretend ProPublica Not ‘Left Wing’

Journalists Pretend Media Darling ProPublica Not ‘Left Wing’ By Aly Nielsen After White House press secretary Sean Spicer called ProPublica a “left-wing blog” in an April 3 press conference, ProPublica responded on Twitter claiming “we’re actually in the biz of facts.” But the “left-wing” description is indeed a fact. Media outlets like The Huffington Post, Salon, The Washington Post and Vox all defended ProPublica’s research, but refused to consider the nonprofit outlet’s liberal bias. Additionally, The Post is one of...

Exxon Valdez Blamed on Climate Change

Slick Rewrite: L.A. Times Blames Climate Change for 28-Year-Old Oil Spill By Aly Nielsen The Los Angeles Times has struck once again in a feeble attempt to sink ExxonMobil. This time, rewriting the story of a 28-year-old shipwreck. The April 6 L.A. Times story, by Columbia Journalism School researchers, used 2,340 words to reject years of court cases and research. Instead, the agenda-driven story blamed the 1989 Exxon Valdez shipwreck and resulting oil spill on climate change. The anti-Exxon hit...

350.org Hawks ‘Report’ From Anti-Coal Activist Group Aly Nielsen and James Powers Climate groups are once again banding together to destroy the fossil fuel industry with the backing of liberal foundations, of course.

CAP Launches Liberal CPAC

Liberals Nonprofits Envision, Launch a Liberal CPAC By Aly Nielsen Liberal responses to President Donald Trump’s presidency have varied from hand-wringing, to mass protests, to new initiatives. Recently, one left-wing nonprofit chose to copy conservative tactics to coordinate for the 2020 election. Center for American Progress (CAP), a George Soros-funded liberal “policy institute,” organized a May 16, “Ideas Conference,” according to Politico. The event is the “first real cattle call of the Democrats nosing around 2020 presidential runs” and is...

Liberal Journalism is Flush With Cash

Liberal Journalism Is Flush With Cash And Conservatives Should Be Worried By Dan Gainor The left plans a so-called March for Science on Earth Day, April 22, as part of its national tantrum against the Trump Administration. But the more-important event has already taken place and liberals are far ahead of their opponents. It’s called the Dash for Cash. That annual fundraising marathon is part of the left’s push to finance liberal journalism, while claiming it’s neutral and unbiased. 2017 has already been...
