Fox News Still Spewing Smoke Despite Vows to Clean Up

on

Despite a very public announcement by News Corp. owner Rupert Murdoch, to reduce his corporation’s carbon footprint and encourage companies who work with them to do the same, Fox news continues to feature opinions that challenge, ridicule and misrepresent any forward thinking around combating global warming.

The latest attack comes from host Sean Hannity who calls carbon offsets a ‘sham’ and a ‘crock’ and, suggests that purchasing offsets is akin to buying one’s way out of committing adultery. On the other hand, Rupert Murdoch has endorsed carbon offsets, saying that they are a measure to be taken when emissions are unavoidable.

I wonder if there’s anyway to offset Hannity’s verbal pollution? Perhaps Murdoch should address reducing his appearance entirely and that might legitimize an intention that we’ve yet to see any evidence of on Fox. Thanks to Media Matters for the editorial.
