Network Media Silent on ClimateGate: Day Fourteen and Counting

Is it possible that NBC, ABC and CBS have never reported the slightest thing about ClimateGate? That appears to be the case. The greatest science scandal in the world, and the mainstream media doesn’t report anything. I don’t watch every minute of these three, in fact I watch little from them, but Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center is watching.

The following report of 14 days of total silence on ClimateGate from network media comes via Media Research Center:

Day Fourteen and Counting:
December 4, 2009

Alexandria, VA – For the fourteenth straight day, the three
broadcast networks have failed to report on the great and growing
ClimateGate scandal on their weekday morning or evening news programs. 
How to explain this?

Perhaps it is that ABC, NBC and CBS have
not yet heard of the story, despite two weeks of non-stop reporting on
and discussion of ClimateGate in a whole host of media outlets.

Perhaps the broadcast networks only trust their fellow liberal press outlets, like the New York Times.  Perhaps they don’t realize the Times exhibited journalistic diligence on ClimateGate, with a front page story the day the story broke.

the event that ABC News, NBC News and CBS News missed the news, the
Media Research Center (MRC) is today rushing each of them a copy of the
Times story, in the hopes that armed with this new information,
they will finally report a story that has been roiling nearly
everywhere else for a fortnight.

So as not to offend the
networks’ pro-global warming sensibilities, MRC President Brent Bozell
is looking to have the stories delivered by bicycle messenger.


is no excuse under the law, but maybe we should stop criticizing and
start showing compassion for NBC, ABC and CBS and their neglect of the
huge ClimateGate story.  We are more than happy to help rectify their
knowledge deficit – via a network-friendly source and in an as
environmentally-friendly a way as possible.

“We think that once the networks read the story of ClimateGate in their vaunted New York Times, they’ll feel compelled to report it themselves.  

“We very much look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor.”
