As I've written before, I try to avoid blogging about MSNBC stuff because the viewership size doesn't justify the effort, but sometimes it's worth it to cite examples of how off-the-wall the Left can be -- not that we need many reminders.
Bob Etheridge's aggressivideo is fully viral, with Drudge highlighting it, but as expected the Congressman's local paper (McClatchy-owned) is taking its time.
That would be former Hewlett-Packard chairwoman Carly Fiorina, Republican candidate for Barbara Boxer's senatorial seat in California, by calling "climate change" the "weather," that is, in the eyes ofUSA Today (and presumably ABC's Bill Blakemore).
Southern California's public radio station, KPCC, and its program "Marketplace" will host a daylong townhall Webcast next Wednesday to salve the wounded psyches of global warming paranoiacs everywhere. The symposium is entitled "Climate and Sustainability: Moving By Degrees," and is "aimed at bringing together journalists and the public online and at Southern California Public Radio’s (SCPR) Crawford Family Forum to decipher fact from fiction, to learn how our scientific understanding has evolved, and to understand where politics, science and business agree and diverge on how to create a sustainable future."
USA Today's Doyle Rice almost always is on top of the latest hypothetical global warming scare study, and a couple of days ago he noticed a doozy.
Climate catastrophist Bill McKibben is out with a new book (presumably much like his others) titledEaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, which USA Todaydescribes as "a dire, frightening call to action.

The Boston Herald is having fun with its rival this morning, after The Globe's Web site, Boston.com, posted an offer to purchase Yankees tickets yesterday.
Stories (thanks to Climate Depot), since the Climategate story broke in November, that discredit "consensus" global warming science and the UN IPCC -- mostly from British media.
Looky here today: The Lancet, a medical journal, retracts a 1998 paper that linked a measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to autism because of unethical conduct by its author, and the media is all over it.
