I’m almost at a loss for words. The biggest scandal, in history, is erupting right under our noses and no one is talking about it. No major news channels, besides Fox News, are covering it, no major magazine publisher’s will breach the subject, and most people don’t even know it is happening.
I’m talking about the global warming cover-up, now being referred to as Climategate. Scientists across the world have been fudging stats and research to intentionally achieve the results they want to prove global warming. Thousands upon thousands of pages of data have been destroyed or hidden. Numbers have been falsely adjusted.
Emails from top world scientists have been leaked, in which, they clearly and blatantly speak of destroying records and "getting rid" of dissenting views. All of this has been reported on Fox News website and no other news channels in the country, according to a conservative media watchdog group. This is the most disturbing fact of all. The fact that the media is "afraid" to cover this kind of story. This is what the media is here for. They are here to uncover the truth for the uninformed citizen, they are here to provide facts, but they are not here to help push agendas. That is what seems to be happening here.
When Bill Clinton had extramarital affairs, the media was all over it. When Tiger Woods got into his recent car accident, the media attacked it with a vengeance. When George W. Bush made any tiny error, the media made him the big bad wolf. But when the biggest scandal of our time breaks loose the media helps to cover up the story.
We need an unbiased media, the media which was supposed to inform the normal citizen of important events. The same media who claim to serve the American citizen are now serving the governments of the world. Instead of providing us with the facts to sort out on our own they are deciding what facts to let us in on. What’s happened to freedom of information? What’s happened to freedom of press? It’s gone, it seems to be a lost cause, that is why we as citizen journalists have to take over the reign of factual reporting. We need to be the difference here. We need the facts and somebody has to provide an honest and unbiased fact filled investigation into this whole fiasco. I will be digging up as much as I can find the next few days and hope that many others choose to do the same. This needs to be brought out into the open immediately. That is what I as a journalist will be attempting to do.
