Fox News’ Parent Corp Praised By EPA For Being Carbon Neutral

Rupert MurdochIt is always fun to note the hypocrisy in what News Corp. does and what News Corp. subsidiary Fox News rails against. In this round, it is the company moving to a carbon neutral state, even as Fox News regularly denies the basic facts of climate science.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson had kind words Wednesday for Fox News, whose parent-company announced this week that it is carbon-neutral.

Despite assertions by Republicans and many Fox News commentators that climate regulations will destroy the economy, Jackson said the effort by News Corp. to become carbon-neutral shows that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is “good for business.”

Why, it’s almost if Fox News’ editorial line is some sort of elaborate con job designed to appeal to conservatives and get advertisers to pay for their attention.
