Studies In Liberal Bias: Ignore National Day of Prayer, Promote Bogus Carbon Credits

For today's demonstration of the liberal bias served up daily in the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper, we will compare and contrast, and throw in a little ignored stories action, too.

Last Thursday, May 3rd, was the National Day of Prayer. It was supported by a Presidental Proclamation, as well as proclamations from the governors of all 50 states, including one from good ol' Teddy K. There were thousands of events around the country, including a large one in Washington D.C.. So how much coverage do you think was given by the Fish Wrapper? Nothing. Not one article, blurb, or anything. Dana Millbanks of the Washington Post did a slandered article on an event that had nothing to do with the National Day of Prayer, but the Fish Wrapper didn't even mention that, How much do you want to bet that if this was a liberal event, such as something in support of infanticide (aka abortion) or gay rights, there would be huge amounts of coverage?

Meanwhile, the Fish Wrapper continues with its front page treatment of the global warming hype with an article about offsetting carbon dioxide emissions with the joke that is carbon credits. As I've documented, carbon credit trading schemes are headed toward collapse. In addition, the Financial Times found a number of problems with carbon credits and why they are so worthless:

  • Widespread instances of people and organizations buying worthless credits that do not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.
  • Industrial companies profiting from doing very little – or from gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they have already benefited substantially.
  • Brokers providing services of questionable or no value.
  • A shortage of verification, making it difficult for buyers to assess the true value of carbon credits.
  • Companies and individuals being charged over the odds for the private purchase of European Union carbon permits that have plummeted in value because they do not result in emissions cuts

But hey, The Fish Wrapper has an agenda to push, so why should they let a little slanted reporting and ignorance of stories get in the way of that? And they wonder why their circulation keeps falling...
