Global Warming coverage

CNN.com and FoxNews.com both ran identical AP stories on a recent global warming report. I have shown in past posts how CNN tends to promote the global warming problem more that Fox. In this case, CNN adds four pictures which adds more emphasis to its article than Fox’s picture-less article. Here is one of CNN’s pictures with the caption: “Smoke billows from chimneys at a power plant in Chifeng, Mongolia. Scientists say they are 90 percent certain global warming is caused by humans.”


Other pictures were of traffic in LA, Alaskan beach erosion, and little snow in Switzerland.
