Chris Matthews on covering climate change: ‘I hate evenhanded, objective journalism’

Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, made it clear that like Al Gore, he believes the media should only be telling one side of the story when it comes to manmade global warming.

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Where’s the problem with climate change? Isn’t it that half the country’s being sold nonsense?

ERIC BATES, EXECUTIVE EDITOR ROLLING STONE: That’s right, and that’s exactly what this essay says. It’s interesting, the essay is really about the press and the media and how they’ve fallen down on the job in terms of being the referee in the fight between science and reason. Gore really points out that the media hasn’t done its job, and has kind of taken a “He said, she said” approach to climate change when in fact there are, there’s truth and there’s falsity in this, and the two are being conflated.

MATTHEWS: I’m with you on that, Eric. I hate that so-called evenhanded so-called objective journalism. You know, you know, you can’t say something isn’t true if it’s true in the interest of evenhandedness.
