Now that the Democrats are about to take control of the House, NBC’s Chuck Todd is setting the narrative for their agenda. This weekend, he devoted an entire hour on Meet the Press to the issue of climate change and said he won’t give air time to ‘deniers’ anymore.
The Washington Times reported:
NBC News host says no air time for climate ‘deniers’ on “Meet the Press’: ‘Science is settled’
NBC News has decided that climate change is no longer an issue that has two sides.
Sunday’s episode of “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd featured an hourlong panel with lawmakers and scientists about the consequences of climate change. But at the start, Mr. Todd said his show is “not going to give time to climate deniers” and went on to inaccurately characterize the nature of the climate debate.
“Just as important as what we are going to do is what we’re not going to do,” he said. “We’re not going to debate climate change, the existence of it. The earth is getting hotter, and human activity is a major cause. Period.”
“We’re not going to give time to climate deniers,” Mr. Todd added. “The science is settled even if political opinion is not.”
Skeptics about some of the most alarmist climate-change scenarios drawn by former Vice President Al Gore and other Democratic and left-wing politicians bristle at the word “denier,” claiming it implies parallels to people who claim the Holocaust or the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks didn’t happen.
If you thought the media was biased before now, just wait. In 2019 and 2020 it will be even worse. The media will do whatever they can to help Democrats.
