Apparently our network news media thinks so.

Sierra Club:

The climate crisis is the biggest challenge facing the next president. But the nation's top reporters don't seem to think so. In 2007, they asked 2275 questions. THREE questions mentioned global warming! Sign the petition: tell reporters to focus on the human race, not the horse race. What Are They Waiting for?

MoveOn: "Reporters asked as many questions about UFOs as they did about the climate crisis-the biggest threat to our planet."

As Amanda at TP notes: In its "coal industry-sponsored" Democratic presidential debate on Monday, "CNN once again failed to ask any questions about global warming." Now, why ever would the msm keep avoiding an issue in which "60 percent of Americans believe “we must take action now or it will be too late to stop it” and 58 percent favor capping carbon emissions."

Is it too much to ask?

Can you help us out?
