Now, if CNN suspends this guy...naw forget, CNN are just as ignorant as Fox News.

I really hope we've reached the point in our society where few enough people take Fox News (especially Fox Nation) seriously and this guy just gets the slap on the wrist appropriate to any news anchor using coarse language on their twitter.

58 is (arguably) too cold for ice cream.

Willfully incompetent and accidentally ignorant.

I didn't like his apology. He should have said "I apologize for using vulgarity, it was unprofessional and I am sorry to those who were offended by it. The sentiment still stands."

When a group goes around in their "I'm Too Hot" truck handing out ice cream, claiming that summers are getting too hot because of climate change, at it's only 58 degrees outside in the middle of summer, it's kind of funny, that's all.

Unintentional ignorance is more forgivable than straight-up deception/misinformation.

I would have said "I apologize to willfully ignorant farksticks for comparing them to the people on Fox Nation".

The big reason why derpers don't believe in global warming is a personal hatred for Al Gore, right?

I know my dad was a global warming denier and that was his reason. Any time the topic came up he was all "Do you have any idea how much electricity Al Gore uses?!"

Anyways, thanks for doing everything you can to continue ruining the planet you vindictive children.

i agree that it's kind of funny. but it does not disprove anthropogenic climate change one bit.

I can think of several more unkind yet true things to say about Fox Nation.

Hell, when I was introduced to Amy's Ice Cream it was 30 degrees and snow was on the ground. We had just finished walking around some Christmas Tree Lane in Austin.

But Fox News isn't implying that it's just 'kind of funny,' it's supplying affirmation for climate change denying morons, that's all.

Bah. As usual a CNN anchor only gives us part of the story. Fox Nation (and Fox News for that matter) are a combination of willfully ignorant farksticks and deliberately deceptive assholes.
 
2014-07-31 05:39:59 PM  
The climate change Moonies are continually telling us hurricanes, earthquakes, forest fires, droughts, plagues of frogs, locusts, and dandruff are all climate change, so Fox gets to sling their same horseshiat back at them. I will give Weir credit for having the sense not to say his piece on the air at CNN or nobody would have ever known about it.

Hanlon's Razor - Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
 
Fox News isn't stupid.  They pass out memos of talking points to their talking heads.  They know what they're doing and they have a clear narrative to drive and goals to attain.  Willful ignorance means they are purposefully preventing themselves from attaining knowledge or information.  But on nearly all of the issues they have the knowledge and information.  But what they tell to their viewers is a very, very different story because they want their viewers to come to specific conclusions.  Fox isn't ignorant, they know exactly what they're doing.

It's actually malice.

97% of scientists agree, based on the overwhelming body of evidence, that humans are having an effect on climate change.  Consider it proven.  A couple scientists from the Heritage Foundation Climate Committee do not make a convincing rebuttal.

Too cold for ice cream? You might as well have said something in African clicking language for as much sense as that makes to me.

Sounds risky, but if they have banana chocolate chip, I'd risk it.

/why is banana flavored ice cream so rare? It's my all-time fav!

All those things are 2 syllables though, so that means Al Gore is a manbearpig and Bobby Jindal is chancellor.
