#ExxonKnew. US Nightly News Still Doesn’t.

Posted in "North Carolina" by helenofmarlowe on November 14, 2015

Pacifica has reported on this, but Pacifica is not mainstream news. I hope mainstream news, aka corporate-owned news, will pick up on this, since the larger public needs to know.

Actually, LA Times as well. Amy Goodman on Democracy Now:
For decades, Exxon has publicly questioned the science of global warming, contradicting internal findings by the company’s own scientists. Recent exposés by InsideClimate News and the Los Angeles Times reveal that Exxon concealed for decades its own conclusions that fossil fuels cause global warming, alter the climate and melt the Arctic. Exxon’s climate deception is now sparking calls for a federal probe similar to that which yielded a racketeering conviction of Big Tobacco for hiding the dangers of smoking. We are joined by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California), who is calling for a Justice Department investigation of Exxon, as well as 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben

MediaMatters:

Evening News Programs On ABC, CBS, And NBCHave Yet To Address Exxon’s Climate Deception. Nexis and Snapstream searches for “Exxon” and “ExxonMobil” revealed that the nightly news shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC all failed to air a single segment about the growing Exxon story, covering neither the media investigations, the Democratic candidates’ comments, nor the New York Attorney General’s actions.

ABC And CBS Briefly Mentioned New York Attorney General Investigation On Morning News Shows. ABC’s Good Morning America and CBSThis Morning both briefly mentioned New York Attorney General Schneiderman’s investigation into Exxon in news rundowns. [ABC, Good Morning America, 11/6/15; CBS, CBS This Morning, 11/6/15]
