Global Warming Censored on Weather Channel Since GE Bought It

Posted by libhom Thursday, September 10, 2009

Since GE led a corporate takeover of the Weather Channel (TWC) a while back, I've noticed the following changes.

1) Older meteorologists have been replaced by younger ones.

2) The background music for the local forecast has gotten a little better.

3) There is a morning show with Al Roker that has a lot of content that has nothing to do with weather.

4) Global Warming has become a taboo topic.

5) Forecast Earth was canceled.

TWC used to be at the forefront of educating people about Global Warming. Yet, now that GE, a company that makes turbines, light bulbs and electrical appliances, owns TWC, it has been erased from mention. This was particularly glaring given that the coverage of the California wildfires didn't mention climate change despite the fact that computer models predicted that global warming would increase the intensities of fire seasons in Mediterranean climates, predictions that have been shown accurate by fires in California, Australia, Spain, and Greece.

This is a rather blatant example of why progressives care so much about media ownership.
