Accuracy in Media

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.
