LAT Editorial: Fox News Should Crack Down on Partisanship to be an Objective News Source

In the wake of the leaked Fox News memos spelling out how editorial decisions get made at Fox News, the LAT finally got around to standing up to them.

They write:

But only a crank would deny the underlying temperature data that show the Earth getting warmer — records compiled by independent stations around the world, combined with satellite measurements and confirmed by observations of rising sea levels, vanishing glaciers and other inputs — because to do so is to deny material and measurable facts. Instructing reporters to treat such facts as controversial is like telling them to question the laws of gravity when discussing plane crashes. The only reason for doing it is to further a partisan agenda, in this case an attempt to cast doubt on climate science in order to fend off government efforts to limit greenhouse gases.

Fox should either come clean about this and crack down on such partisanship in its news ranks, or it should stop pretending to be an objective news source.

Guess who’s going to be the next ACORN?
