Accuracy in Media
By: Brian McNicoll
It was 46 years ago, almost to the day, that the Washington Post ran a story on how man’s behavior was affecting his environment.
“In the next 50 years fine dust that humans discharge into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuel will screen out so much of the sun’s rays that the Earth’s average temperature could fall by six degrees,” the Post reported. “Sustained emissions over five to 10 years could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.”
But long before the shelf life of the Post’s prediction began to run out with no Ice Age in sight, the newspaper changed course and decided burning fossil fuel would make the weather hotter, not colder. It makes one wonder – Is the Post trying to deliver serious scientific information? Or does it just view pot shots at the energy industry as a way to sell papers?

Obama-administration officials arranged for her entry – for reasons that have nothing to do with Trump Jr. or the presidential campaign.
She is relentlessly described as a “Russian lawyer” in media reporting. It should not escape our notice, then, that Natalia Veselnitskaya is not an American lawyer. She is not admitted to practice law in the United States.
So why was she admitted into the United States when she was not qualified to do the job that was the rationale for her admission?
We’ll get to that. To cut to the chase, however, it had nothing to do with the Trump campaign.

For almost a year now, we have heard the caterwauling from the Progressive/socialists and the sycophants that they have in the media about how President Trump has worked with the Russians to destroy our Republic. Started the day after the election loss of Queen Hillary, the Clinton team started first with blaming her loss on sexism. When that didn’t work the went to the theory of Russian collusion with the Trump administration. A few phone calls to the media and the friends that had hidden in the intelligence services, and with the help of the Obama administration, they have been bellowing ever since about how the Russians “hacked our elections. They claimed Trump himself were under investigation, that 17 intelligence agencies agreed with the opinion that the Russians had colluded with Trump to “steal” the election.
The question is, is this just a bad movie rerun, and do the people in this country believe the narrative? There will always be the die-hard socialist Hillary supporters who still believe is not the slimy criminal that her own actions have proven, but most people are now ignoring the MSM and talking heads breathlessly passing on fake news and outright lies to attempt to undermine Trump. Even CNN doesn’t believe this garbage as shown by James O’Keefe Project Veritas videos.
Let’s look at a few of the missteps made so far:
We interviewed students in D.C. to get their opinions on Socialism. Yes, they love it. No, they’re not too sure why. Watch them try to define what socialism is…
In Oregon, a state known for its avid bicycling culture, the state Legislature’s approval of the first bike tax in the nation has fallen flat with riders. Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is expected to sign the sweeping $5.3 billion transportation package, which includes a $15 excise tax on the sale of bicycles costing more than $200 with a wheel diameter of at least 26 inches. Even though the funding has been earmarked for improvements that will benefit cyclists, the tax has managed to irk both anti-tax Republicans and environmentally conscious bikers. BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in the wrong direction.” “We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species,” Mr. Maus said.
