Global Warming Coverage -- Part 2

Two months ago I reported that CNN had more coverage on global warming than Fox News. On February 12th I checked the previous 30 days and found that CNN had 11 articles to Fox’s four (http://cnnvsfox.blogspot.com/2005/02/global-warming-coverage.html). That trend continues as I check it again today for the last 30 days. CNN has 11 articles to Fox’s three. Of the three Fox articles, two are from its “Junk Science” section.

Challenges ahead for a changing Earth (04.08.2005)
In 1969, the Cuyahoga River flowing past Cleveland, Ohio, caught fire and burned noxious sludge from steel mills, paint factories and sewage plants. In California, an offshore drilling rig stained the coast of Santa Barbara with more than 3 million gallons of crude oil. The skies of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home to the nation's steel industry, were so dark with soot that drivers sometimes had to turn on their headlights during the day.
