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...

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...

Climate Groups Panic Over EPA Rollback

The executive order requires the EPA to “review Obama’s Clean Power Plan, rescind the moratorium on coal mining on US federal lands,” and review the impact existing regulations have on jobs, according to CNN.

Center for Media and Democracy Slams Koch Education Funding, Ignores Soros By Aly Nielsen Funding universities is part of a “Nazi authoritarian tactic,” at least when conservatives do it, according to The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD).

The author also accused a Koch associate of recommending a “Nazi authoritarian tactic of creating...

Groups Request Trump Whistleblowing

ProPublica and InsideClimate Encourage Whistleblowing Under Trump By Sarah Stites Liberals encourage whistleblowing just so long as it makes the Trump Administration look bad. Less than 24 hours after Donald Trump was sworn-in as president, liberal foundation-funded media outlets updated their websites inviting government workers to leak insider knowledge on climate-related policy developments. “If you see something, say something,” ProPublica senior climate reporter Andrew Revkin urged. “ProPublica is eager to get tips on shifts in available government information related to...
