Totally Unbiased News And Observer Receives Grant To Publish More Climate Cult Material

Why are newspapers accepting grants to publish certain “news”?

News & Observer receives grant to bolster coverage of climate change, the environment

The News & Observer and The Herald-Sun will add a full-time climate change and environment reporter starting June 1, thanks to a grant from the 1Earth Fund.

The 1Earth Fund is a private nonprofit foundation that finances efforts to provide education and information about climate change, its effects and solutions to the problem.

Adam Wagner has been selected by the N&O as its new climate change and environment reporter. Wagner has worked with the paper for two years as a Report For America corps member. RFA places reporters in newsrooms across the country to help bolster local news coverage. Wagner has covered hurricane recovery and, since the start of the pandemic, efforts to create and distribute a coronavirus vaccine.

“We’re grateful to the 1Earth Fund for recognizing that credible and independent news and information on critical issues can help solve intractable problems,” said Robyn Tomlin, president and editor of The News & Observer and The Herald-Sun. “We’re excited to have a talented reporter like Adam Wagner transitioning into this role.”

They’re grateful that they’re news reporting is being bought by a far left outlet? How is it possible to even pretend to be a neutral news service? Let’s find out about Report For America

Report for America is an organization that seeks to place journalists in local newsrooms all around the country. The organization is modeled after the U.S. government agency Americorps which sends members to assist on various projects all over the country.

Report for America helps newsrooms across the country hire journalists. It also seeks to hire journalists to cover areas that are traditionally ignored by the national media.

Report for America is a joint project of Google News Lab and The GroundTruth Project, both organizations associated with the political left-of-center.

So, the N&O is going to publish propaganda, and they are actually going to have several “reporters” from RFA working on not just the climate change scam, but “one covering housing and the pandemic, and one covering diverse communities in and around the Triangle.”

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the climate scam

Top Scientist Cuts Ties With National Lab After It Invited A Climate Denier To Speak

Ben Santer, one of the world’s best-known climate scientists, announced this week he is severing ties with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory after the federal research facility invited a climate denier to give a book talk this Thursday.

Santer had planned to retire from the lab, where he has worked for 29 years, in September, but would continue his award-winning atmospheric research on a part-time basis and maintain his affiliation.

But in a blog post published Monday, the MacArthur “Genius” grant recipient said his employer failed to “adequately address” concerns he raised with hosting physicist Steve Koonin to speak about his new book, “Unsettled,” which sows doubt over the reality of human-causing global warming. Santer cast the decision to allow Koonin, a New York University professor, to promote his polemic at an official lab event as a betrayal of the research conducted there for decades.

If a scientist is unwilling to listen to other views, other scientific data, they should stop calling themselves scientists. Science requires lots of viewpoints, as science can change with new data. And, heck, Santer didn’t have to go to the book talk. But, no, he freaked and quit early. It’s a cult. And now those of us here in the Raleigh area will have a cultist writing lots of material which you know will be front page.

    At least on Twitter, such things are marked as “Promoted.” Will your local newspaper mark such stories as “Advertising”?

    Teach
    No you are wrong about what scientists should/must listen to
    The world is a sphere, it is not flat like on paper maps
    Giving him a platform like LLL to promote book sales is different then publishing in a peer reviewed journal.
    Newsweek told us the Earth might be going into deep freeze mode
    90% of peer reviewed journal articles said the Earth would be warming because of CO2
    Profits can easily distort truth, even from a “scientist”

    “Totally Unbiased” FOX, OAN, Newsmax, Gateway Pundit, Breitbart, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, NRO, No Tricks Zone, WUWT, Powerline, Laura Ingraham, Epoch Times also “report” on global warming.

    Just more typical right-wing hypocrisy from William Teach, holding others to standards that he and his refuses to abide.

    Professor Koonin, former Chief Scientist at British Petroleum, published “Unsettled”, sort of an outsider’s look at global warming and why the science is wrong.

    The (tRump) White House is recruiting researchers who reject the scientific consensus on climate change for its “adversarial” review of the issue.

    The proposal to form a “Presidential Committee on Climate Security” at the National Security Council has shifted, into an ad-hoc group that will review climate science out of the public eye. Those involved in the preliminary discussions said it is focused on recruiting academics to conduct a review of the science that shows climate change presents a national security risk.

    William Happer, a senior director at the NSC and an emeritus Princeton University physics professor not trained in climate science, is leading the effort.

    The list of researchers who have been approached or discussed includes: Judith Curry, a former professor at the Georgia Tech’s School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; Richard Lindzen, a retired Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who has called those worried about global warming a “cult”; and John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, and a newly installed member of EPA’s Science Advisory Board. A leader of the effort is Steven Koonin, a New York University professor and former undersecretary for science in the Department of Energy in the Obama administration.

    The problem with Professor Koonin is that he is not an expert in the field. Not even close. No doubt he will make money from book sales, but Dr Santer is taking a strong and painful stand in leaving the prestigious Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

        Old Ben doesn’t seem to have changed much since his IPCC trick days…

    • david7134 says:

      Jeff,
      So an expert is someone that believes a trace gas has so much power as to change climate, and that this change is always a bad thing and that the problem can only be stopped by taxes and world government, communist. We used to call such people a dumbass, but you call them an expert.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        doogie hoser,

        An expert understands the evidence supporting their conclusions. It’s not a “belief”. It’s a fact that CO2 absorbs infrared radiation, otherwise the Earth would be perpetually covered in ice.

        The process can be slowed by reducing our output of CO2 and/or removing CO2 from the atmosphere. Taxes and communism have nothing to do with it.

        You and your ilk call a lot of people a lot of things. No biggie.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Well Rimjob you’re the uh, expert, dipshit that you are.

          Just like Ben Santer.

      Has our host ever stated that any of those media companies do not push a particular point of view?

      Yes, they have an editorial slant, as do MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, The Philadelphia Inquirer and most newspapers in this country. The question is: will the News & Observer report these stories fairly, or are they already suspicious, being paid stories?

      I’ve spent rather a lot of bandwidth on my site on the choice of the McClatchy Company, which owns my ‘local’ Lexington Herald-Leader, to go all Social Justice Warrior and restrict some of the information given to the public. The News & Observer is yet another McClatchy newspaper.

  4. david7134 says:

    Jeff,
    Again, no sense to your comment. Fact is you push for restrictions which would markedly change our life, wealth, government that are unilateral to US and admittedly would do nothing.

    Your god is CO2 and your science is a religion.
