According to Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture for the Media Research Center, journalists in their reporting have led the way in "demonizing" traditional forms of energy such as oil, coal, natural gas, and even hydroelectric. (See related article)

"They oppose basically 90-percent-plus of the types of energy that we currently rely on to heat our homes, power our hospitals, and fuel our cars and the rest of our society – 90 percent-plus," he emphasizes. "The only stuff that they really advocate is solar and wind."

Gainor, Dan (MRC)As Gainor points out, that accounts for only a small percentage (2.19%) of the U.S. energy mix. Plus, he says, the media fail to report that there's simply not the battery technology available to store the energy.

"So what you end up with is the media advocating against the types of power that we need and advocating for power that doesn't exist," he summarizes.

Gainor says the liberal media has yet to offer a viable alternative to the fuel sources they blast as "dirty."
