Conservative media criticized President Obama, world leaders, and climate change supporters as the leaders meet to advocate global action to address climate change at the U.N. climate summit in Paris. Media personalities argued that the focus on climate change is misguided because of the threat of terrorism.
Since the release of deceptively-edited videos smearing Planned Parenthood, right-wing media have frequently compared abortion providers to the Nazis, referencing Auschwitz and the notorious experiments performed by Josef Mengele.
Following the November 27 shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood location that killed three people and wounded nine others, three major Sunday political shows -- Fox News Sunday, Meet The Press, and State Of The Union -- allowed guests to hype the false claim that Planned Parenthood sells "baby parts" based on a series of deceptively-edited videos from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP).
Fox News personalities attacked President Obama for saying that an international climate summit in Paris will be a "rebuke to terrorists" by showing international unity, deriding his remarks as "disturbing" and "encouragement to the terrorists."
Critical voices in the media are increasingly encouraging news outlets to not give a "free pass" to the fact that presidential candidate Donald Trump "is without question making himself into the racist's candidate for president."
Right-wing media have repeatedly exploited the November 13 ISIS-led terror attacks in Paris to stoke fears about Syrian refugees posing a terror threat in the U.S., falsely claiming that the United States lacks a rigorous refugee vetting system, that most Syrian refugees are adult males "of fighting age," and that, like the attacks in Paris, the Boston Marathon bombing and Ft. Hood shooting were perpetrated by refugees.
Fox News baselessly claimed that the Obama administration ordered military officials to manipulate intelligence about ISIS after it was reported that the Pentagon was expanding an investigation into allegations that intelligence was altered to make the terror group look weaker than it was. However, the accusations of manipulation have pointed only to senior United States Central Command officials, not the White House.
