What The Media Tell
Americans About Free Enterprise
During the scorching
summer of 1988, Dr. James Hansen of NASA made headlines by claiming,
during testimony before a congressional panel, that the greenhouse
effect "is here." Since then, he has appeared regularly in news
articles and programs as a source for global warming stories.
But last month, Dr. Hansen
wrote in a scientific journal that the "forcings that drive
long-term climate change are not known with an accuracy sufficient
to define future climate change."
Big news, right? Apparently
not. Though Investor’s Business Daily reported the news on
November 24, a Nexis search revealed that during November the Los
Angeles Times, The New York Times, and The Washington Post
all failed to report on the story.
