STUDY: Climate Coverage Plummets On Broadcast Networks | Media Matters for America

The network news shows have stopped talking about climate change  –  Where they discuss it at all, they talk about the politics of climate change, and not the science.   Most egregious of all…

Each Network Covered Donald Trump More Than Climate Change In 2011. Every program included in our analysis devoted more airtime to Donald Trump’s flirtation with a presidential run and birther antics than to climate change in 2011, with the exception of ABC World News, which gave equal time to the two topics. Together, the broadcast networks spent more than twice as much time covering Donald Trump. The discrepancy was most glaring on NBC’s Meet the Press, which devoted 23 minutes to Trump but did not cover climate change at all in 2011.
