If the media covered climate change the way it covers Hillary’s email



As many have notednot one question about climate change was asked by the moderators of the recent presidential debates, despite our passing a major climate milestone in September.

A fairly astonishing study of network news broadcasts in 2016 showed no (!) climate change coverage — and relatively little policy coverage, for that matter — yet ample reporting on Hillary Clinton’s email.

You know what’s “extremely careless” (to borrow a phrase from James Comey)? Ignoring the most important issue in the world.
