ABC news anchor John Stossel on media AGW hype

WUWT reports that John Stossel, former co-anchor on ABC News "20/20" and global warming realist, is moving to Fox News. Via the comments here’s Stossel speaking at the New York International Conference on Climate Change, March 2008, about the mainstream media's AGW hype:

"... really we’re not all evil. We just are dumb ..."


Also in the comments is this interesting note from former Victoria Times Colonist columnist Paul MacRae (12:09:08):
The editor of the Victoria, BC, Times Colonist has laid down an explicit policy that she will not allow skeptical climate stories to appear–they cause too much fuss with green readers and consensus climatologists. I also know this is true from personal experience. For eight years I wrote editorials and columns for the TC (I now teach), so obviously I am a professional writer by journalistic standards, but my last four skeptical freelance opeds on climate change were rejected, as are anyone else’s. ...
On the other hand, for every claim (no matter how lame) from AGW fanatics the TC seeks out commentary from local alarmist Andrew Weaver.

Thanks for that. I've always admired John Stossel.

As for the editor of the Times Colonist, she is an unethical coward. She should be fired.
