View from the blog-o-sphereStudy: Fox News botches climate-change coverage

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has put together an awful pie chart for Fox News.
Those proportions come from a look at Fox News coverage of climate change in 2013, when UCS found 50 segments to examine for accuracy. Of those, 72 percent “included misleading portrayals of the science.” The breakdown goes further than the network-wide coverage, delivering a sharp elbow to one of the Erik Wemple Blog’s favorite shows on cable news:

In general, Fox hosts and guests were more likely than those of other networks to disparage the study of climate science and criticize scientists.
