Obama on climate change (Alaska, Aug 2015)The reliably left-wing media did its best to push climate change beliefs during President Obama's visit to Paris for climate talks, says a media watchdog. 

When the President was attending the International Climate Summit, the Media Research Center was watching the reaction of the "big three" news networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC.

MRC spokesperson Alatheia Larsen says all three networks hyped the calls for limiting carbon dioxide emissions. But all three also failed to mention more hopeful news, such as emissions from coal and oil hitting a record low this year, she complains.

"None of that stuff they talked about," she advises. "Instead they focused on the smog issues that China's facing right now, for example."

The broadcast networks also mentioned the recent terrorist attack in Paris.

"The tone of some of the news coverage was almost lamenting the attack," says Larsen, "not because they were terrorist attacks and killed people but that they were distracting from the climate talks themselves."

Despite the backdrop of the Paris attacks, MRC and Larsen also noticed there was no mention by the network news that President Obama considers climate change America's great threat, not radical Islamic terrorism.

Larsen's analysis of the climate talk news coverage can be read here.
