Bickering and defensive, Newsweek reporters have lost the public’s trust.
Another week, another staggering journalistic lapse in climate science reporting at a once-great media outlet.
How bad is “Uncertain Science,” by Stefan Theil, European economics editor for the near-dead newsweekly? I asked Dr. Robert J. Brulle for a comment, and the Drexel University “expert on environmental communications,” wrote me back:
This article is basically a condensed version of the climate denier viewpoint. Mr. Theil significantly distorts the situation, and grossly fails to ground his story in the actual facts, all to support his biased position. Obviously, Newsweek doesn’t have any fact-checking capability. How this counts as journalism is beyond me.
