Cavuto Touts Fox Special as the "Definitive Piece" on Global Warming

Reported by Melanie - May 19, 2006

Media Matters posted an expose this morning (May 19, 2006) on the "special presentation" Fox News will air on Sunday night titled, "Global Warming: The Debate Continues." The post says that,

Among the roster of contributors are several global warming skeptics with ties to the energy industry and records of misinformation on the issue. In each case, their statements or studies questioning global warming theory have been debunked or proven misleading by the scientific community. It remains to be seen whether Asman will inform viewers of these records or of their associations with institutions funded by companies that have a financial stake in opposing policies that seek to combat climate change.

If Neil Cavuto's promo of the special is any indication, viewers will never know about the background of some of the contributors. Here's what he said today on Your World:

That should be a great special when David Asman takes a whole look at the global warming thing. Finally, the definitive piece on that. Dave's on it.

(Emphasis added.)

I doubt it, but we'll see.
