American censorship

Written by Thom Hartmann

When I was in Australia in 2002,as wildfires were ravaging New South Wales and licking up against Sidney, the evening news reported in nearly every newscast how the fires were caused by drought that climate scientists had previously predicted would be the unstoppable result of global warming.  However, not a single news report in the U.S. on radio, TV, newspaper, or on the Internet mentioned how the flooding in the midwestern U.S. had been predicted just months earlier at a conference of European global warming experts.  Neoconservative front men for the fossil fuel industry have effectively cowed news reporters in all sectors of American reporting.
