If you wanted to see an example of biased journalism, a good place to start would be the Aug. 13 cover story in Newsweek about global warming.
The issueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cover says Ã¢â‚¬Å“Global Warming Is A Hoax,Ã¢â‚¬Â but there is an asterisk, which leads to the statement Ã¢â‚¬Å“Or so claim well-funded naysayers who still reject the overwhelming evidence of climate change.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In other words, Newsweek has an agenda to promote global-warming hysteria, and they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t feel any need to give equal time to a point of view they disagree with. Indeed NewsweekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s author Sharon Begley denounces global warming skeptics as Ã¢â‚¬Å“deniers,Ã¢â‚¬Â a term which I think establishes the pseudo-religious quality of the global warming crusade as well as anything.
