The news media "can" be used to accurately report the news as it happens, or they can use reporters to "create" news, or they can use editorialists to propagandize a certain agenda.  Such is the case of the Seattle Times, who I remember as being a relatively fair and balanced, credible news source in my earlier years.  But now the Times promotes a specific agenda and uses the "power of the press" to influence public policy.  Imagine the news media trying to influence public policy!
Yesterday on the editorial page, one of the Times' lead editorialists once again, propagandized the case for anthropogenic (man-caused) global warming.  In today's Times we get two articles on the scourge of man-caused global warming and we must act now, or obviously we are all going to die, probably from drowning, as the sea level will rise to the point of flooding downtown Seattle.  (That would be a cute trick since Seattle is built on a steep hill)  Oh and let's not forget low snow packs, more rain, more intense forest fires, dust bowls, low agricultural output and whatever else these brainwashed, over-educated, power-grabbing idiots can come up with.
Everyone knows that a weather report is good for about 2 hours and that a 5-day forecast is almost always inaccurate.  Looking out your window is a better method of forecasting, or the pain in your grandfather's elbow.  Why?  Because weather is a dynamic system and short and long range predictions are notoriously inaccurate, due to there being too many variables.  Any credible scientist knows this.  20 years ago these idiots were forecasting global cooling and from the looks of the pictures you will see below, their prediction was much closer to the mark.
So it is quite obvious to this observer that the editorial board of the Seattle Times, for whatever reason, is trying to influence public policy by shoving global-warming article, after global-warming article down our collective throats, to condition us to more government control.  It is also quite obvious why the editorial board is not interested in publishing the rising crescendo of credible individuals that say that the "man-caused, global-warming, sky-is-falling" crisis, is an abject fraud, being perpetrated on naive American citizens for the not-so-hidden agenda of central planning and one-world-order government control of every aspect of our lives.
Dare we ask, is this still America, the land of the free?  Central planning and control?  Hmmmm!  We thought that was Soviet Russia's "gig".
