Journalists Were Once Ultimate Skeptics

Not any more. "Journalists" are advocates for liberal causes; they don't question shit. Look at all the ignored climate scandals. Look at all the empirical evidence (i.e., cold) that prompted the language shift from "global warming" to "climate change" and then, finally, "global climate disruption" (Obama's minions). The fact that so many "smart" people can't see through this crap is truly fascinating.

Well, you must be wrong because Fox News Washington Bureau Chief Bill Sammon is getting a raft of garbage from liberal activists masquerading as journalists at Media Matters, some liberal bloggers and a scattering of real journalists who ought to know better.

Why? Politico’s headline captures the controversy perfectly: “Fox editor urged climate skepticism.”

A journalist being skeptical? Who would ever have thought such a thing could be. I don’t know, maybe anybody who has heard this (attributed long ago to a crusty desk editor at the illustrious City News Bureau in Chicago): “If your mother tells you she loves you, check it out.”

In other words, we journalists are paid to BE SKEPTICAL.
