On NBC's Today, Willard Scott attempted to call global warming into question by stating that "the folks out in Denver and Colorado ... [are having] the coldest winter they've had in years." But as Media Matters has noted, local weather conditions are not indicative of whether the Earth is warming.
Bret Stephens claimed that "a relatively small, very effective think tank," the Competitive Enterprise Institute, "has been consistently pointing out the flaws in some of the political conclusions that have been reached" about global warming. But contrary to Stephens' assertion about the quality of CEI's work, Media Matters has documented that two of CEI's television ads contained misleading statements about global warming.
On Special Report, correspondent Molly Henneberg uncritically aired Sen. James Inhofe's false claim that "[i]t was warmer in the '30s than it is today," and Inhofe's baseless assertion that "it was warmer in the 15th century than it is today."
