Don’t be too hard on the boobs at NBC News, who recently published a map showing nonexistent wildfires blossoming all across Australia. Given that the priority is to advance left-wing ideology, not to reflect factual reality, gross cluelessness is the norm in the media establishment. Consider the odious dentist’s office standby Slime:
On Wednesday, Time published a story with the following rather provocative headline: Climate Change Affects Australia’s Epic Wildfires – No Matter What Prime Minister Says.
That is not only a lie but a preposterous lie, in light of the warming trend having ended over a decade ago. But to continue…
What’s worth mentioning here is that Time magazine mentioned in an earlier version of its story that New South Wales was in southwestern Australia.
Hey, you only missed by 3000km or so guys. That’s like putting Washington DC in San Diego. No biggie.
Other errors in this particular Slime article include calling UN climate clown (excuse me, I mean Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) Chistiana Figueres “Christina,” and the former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard “Gilliard.”
Yet this is the media we allow to choose our government for us.
Grownups interested in the real reasons Australia’s bushfires have been severe are directed to JoNova, rather than the lying left-wing bunglers at Slime.
