So, not only did Murdoch not listen to Preston Padden, but Murdoch did the exact opposite of toning things down. Nah, let’s just double down. Fox News viewers must be very excited that they won’t have to tune in to the Weather Channel or the National Weather Service any more. And it makes sense, for Murdoch’s world view…one more service his audience won’t have to go elsewhere for.

I wish he would just go away…but someone worse will probably fill his shows.

So goes the march towards totalitarianism and the “voice of the state.”

The media tycoon has described himself as a climate change “skeptic.”

Hmm, yeah, I’m skeptical that the propagandist doesn’t know climate change is real.

You can imagine stories with weather in the blue states blamed on the weather underground.
Will they have a meteorologist like Tex Antoine drawing funny cartoon characters and making offensive rape jokes off camera?

Seems like we should be pretty close to the point where Murdoch and his enterprises could legitimately be considered active agents of a hostile power. Just say’n.

I say let them waste their money. It’s gotten to the point where it’s almost impossible to deny climate change without looking like an absolute hack.

To be fair, tornadoes are inordinately attracted to trailer parks in Bible-Belt Red States, so there’s something to be delved into there.
