We Got Climate and Skeptic in the Headline, Right

The article is a wonder of omission, elision, and overall tip-toeing around the reality of a warming Earth.  So they’ll quote scientists who are four square behind climate change as a real thing but aren’t convinced how much it directly influenced Sandy, but in their body copy still refer to the “climate change debate”, just so you know that FOX itself is still iffy on the whole concept.  The important thing: Democrats are wrong and at least some scientists disagree with them.  The less important thing that is artfully concealed: the disagreement is over a minor point, not the grand one we want our readers to assume.

Rove: Sifting the Numbers for a Winner

It comes down to numbers. And in the final days of this presidential race, from polling data to early voting, they favor Mitt Romney.
