Jim Harris on media coverage of the Climate Crisis:

The IPCC Report was in the news for a couple of days and then disappeared from mass media news cycle. This is the largest crisis humanity has ever faced: Life on earth hangs in the balance. And yet the media attention given to Miley Cyrus twerking was infinitely greater than the coverage of the IPCC report. [emphasis mine]

Let's Worry About Climate Change, Not Miley Cyrus

Facts and truth are foreign concepts to Faux.  They yell the loudest over percieved slights,.  The first lady suggesting people move more.  And drink water??   How dare she!  That's the kind of bs that gives them the bad rap they so richly deserve.

It's simple, k hughes.  Faux Noise wants NOTHING to do with FACTS.  Never mind what they want to call THE TRUTH (all caps, of course) ... but FACTS. 

That would spoil the game.

Holy FUCK!  What dumbass do they have working graphics at Faux Noise NOW?!?  I'd say it's unbelievable ... but there it is.
