Media BiASS: What? Who? GruberGate??

NBC Nightly News Keeps Quiet on Gruber as ABC’s World News Tonight Finally Covers Story

 

On Tuesday night, NBC Nightly News continued its streak of ignoring comments made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber into an 11th day while ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir finally brought up Gruber’s comments on the “stupidity of the American voter” and the “advantage” of having a “lack of transparency” in getting ObamaCare passed. Anchor David Muir discussed the story for one minute and 16 seconds with ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl and described the situation as a “controversy” and labeled Gruber as “one of the architects of ObamaCare” two days after President Obama brushed off Gruber as merely “some adviser who never worked on our staff.”

 

ABC and NBC Ignore Gruber’s Numerous W.H. Visits, CBS Barely Covers

 

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of ObamaCare, made more than a dozen visits to visit the White House since “Democrats began drafting the law in 2009.” Despite the latest developments in the Gruber controversy, which contradicts President Obama’s line that Gruber was “some advisor who never worked on our staff,” CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to mention the report, giving it a mere 24 seconds during its Tuesday morning broadcast. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today ignored the Journal’s report altogether.

 

Ex-Obama Aide Destroys Media Narrative, Admits Gruber Was an ‘Important Figure’

 

A former adviser to Barack Obama on Tuesday overturned the media narrative, promoted by the President, that Jonathan Gruber was an unimportant, minor figure. The New York Times on Tuesday insisted in an editorial, “Republicans are crowing over Mr. Gruber’s remarks because he has been portrayed as a major architect of the health reform law. In truth, his role was limited.” The health care operative has repeatedly bragged about fooling “stupid” Americans. The paper’s editors lectured, Yet, Steven Rattner, a former Obama administration adviser, countered this narrative on Morning Joe. He blurted, “But I remember that when I was in the White House, he was certainly viewed as an important figure in helping to put Obamacare together.”

 

Krauthammer: Obama Counted On ‘Minions in the Press’ to Help Cover Up Gruber Scandal

 

Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report Monday, columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested that the reason President Obama waited a week to comment on the Jonathan Gruber ObamaCare scandal was because the White House knew it could count on the liberal media to ignore the story: “…they’ve had six years experience of the press essentially conspiring with them….the administration issues statements, it uses Gruber reports, it’s echoed by their minions in the press, then repeated by Democrats as if this is objective evidence…” Krauthammer explained: “I think that they calculated the President could go a week without talking about it and then pretend he never heard of it because you wouldn’t hear about it in the press. And in fact, except for Fox, you look at all the networks and you showed that last week, it’s been a blackout.”

 

Media Critic: Fox News ‘Far Better Watchdog’ on Obama Than ‘Any Other’ TV News Outlet

 

In a Tuesday article, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik examined the reason behind Fox News beating every other TV news outlet in the ratings – including NBC, ABC and CBS – during November 4 midterm election coverage: “…it’s time to think seriously about what that says about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, the state of network news today and the role TV plays or doesn’t play in providing us with reliable, trustworthy information.” Zurawik offered one possible explanation: “I think one of the reasons for this latest evolution of ratings dominance might be that Fox was a far better watchdog on the Obama White House than any other TV news organization. It took the heat and the blowback from an administration that showed an enmity for the press not seen on Pennsylvania Avenue since the dark days of Richard Nixon, but it stayed the course. And now with viewers seeing the contempt this administration had for them and the truth, they respect what Fox did the last six years.”

 

Gen. Honore Jabs the Media: ‘People Like You’ Driving Chaos in Ferguson

 

On Monday’s AC360 on CNN, retired Lt. General Russel Honore rebuked the media’s coverage of the ongoing controversy surrounding the police shooting of Michael Brown. Anderson Cooper raised how a liberal legal analyst contended that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s activation of the National Guard, in anticipation of a grand jury decision on the case, was an “escalation of this military-style approach that didn’t work in the first place.” He then asked, “Do you agree with that – that it could, in some ways, do more harm than – than good?”

Republican Leadership Prepared to Relinquish all (Gun) Policy Decisions to Democrats…

 … for the Next Ten Months!


Not a GOA member yet?  Make sure to join Gun Owners of America!


First, the good news.  Last week, you contacted your congressional representatives and demanded a “short term” Continuing Resolution.  They heard you, and every conservative in Washington is echoing this theme.

Now for the bad news.  Even though Republicans just won control of Congress, what’s the first “bright idea” the Republican leadership comes up with after their wave election?

ANSWER: GIVE CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS CONTROL OF THE CONGRESS FOR THE NEXT TEN MONTHS!!!!!   

Thankfully, the overwhelming percentage of conservative Republicans in Washington are opposed to this.  And that’s why we need to keep lighting the fire under them, so they will continue to keep pressing their leadership to stand up to Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Here is what’s at stake: Virtually all spending and policy decisions are made on the giant government-funding bill, called the “continuing resolution” or “CR.”

And it’s in the “CR” where we have been able to defund much of Obama’s anti-gun agenda:  defunding the shotgun import ban, Fast & Furious, the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty, etc.

The current “CR” is slated to expire on December 11. So the Republican House has two choices:

1. It can allow the repudiated Democrats currently in control of the Senate (until January 5) to make all of the spending and policy decisions — which will affect your gun rights — until September 30, 2015. It would do this by passing a so-called “long-term CR” which would set policy and spending until the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2015).

2. Or it would do a “short-term CR” into January, February, or March. This would allow the newly elected Republican Congress to set spending and policy for the federal government for most of next year.

What difference does it make?

Given Obama’s “veto pen,” all of the pro-gun policy for the next two years will probably be achieved on this bill — or not.

When April 15 hits — and millions of Americans are hit with hundreds of dollars of ObamaFines — we may be able to create a massive fight over ObamaCare’s unconstitutional mandates.

And this could be the best chance that gun owners have of eliminating a backdoor gun ban — where health data is compiled on millions of Americans and used to disarm gun owners (similar to how 175,000 military veterans have already been disarmed).

But we can’t do it without a short-term CR.

Finally, with respect to the anti-gun amnesty provisions Obama is about to illegally promulgate by executive fiat? We can address these in a Republican controlled Congress. But we can’t, so long as Harry Reid is in the catbird’s seat.

So we ask this of Republicans: Why did we elect you? It certainly wasn’t so that you could cede all of the spending and policy decisions to Democrats for 37.5% of your congressional term.

It’s time to show some backbone. And the first step is a short-term CR.

ACTION:  Contact your Representative and urge him to insist on a “short-term CR.”

ABC and NBC Continue to Blackout Gruber Video; CBS Ignores Clip of Pelosi Praising Gruber in 2009

 

As ABC and NBC continued to censor any mention of the disparaging comments made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber from their Thursday night newscasts, CBS aired second story on Gruber with this one (and the other coming from Thursday’s CBS This Morning) airing on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. While the report by CBS News national correspondent Wyatt Andrews covered what Gruber said, how Democrats and Republicans have responded, and that he was a paid White House adviser on ObamaCare, Andrews did not attempt to point out the contradiction House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi created Thursday when she denied ever having heard of Gruber when she had in fact praised him in 2009.

 

Andrea Mitchell to EPA Chief: How Will You Handle GOP ‘Climate Deniers’?

 

In a softball interview with Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy on Thursday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell teed up the Obama administration official to dismiss legitimate Republican criticism of the President’s climate deal with China: “I wanted to ask you of course about this major breakthrough with China. And the criticism already from many Republicans….What are you facing as you approach climate deniers…now that you have, you know, the Republicans in charge?” McCarthy predictably defended the agreement as “a big step forward” that was “the result of the leadership of this administration to recognize the need to take quick and prompt and aggressive action on climate.”

 

NBC Pretends Keystone Vote Isn’t a Political Favor for a Desperate Democrat

 

All three networks on Thursday covered the abrupt reversal of the United States Senate on the Keystone XL Pipeline. In the wake of the devastating midterm losses last week, Democrats are allowing a vote. NBC’s Today, unlike ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning, ignored the fact that the vote is a transparent attempt to save Senator Mary Landrieu, currently struggling in a Louisiana runoff election. On Today, Natalie Morales noted that there could be a vote “on a bill to build the controversial pipeline.” After explaining that Barack Obama may still veto it, she added, “The pipeline has been stalled for six years over environmental concerns.” In contrast, GMA’s Amy Robach relayed, “Democrats are no longer blocking the bill. They’re trying to help their colleague, Senator Mary Landrieu win her runoff election.”

 

Andrea Mitchell Hails Obama’s ‘Landmark’ Climate Deal; Slams GOP As Anti-Science

 

At the top of her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Wednesday, host Andrea Mitchell cheered President Obama “achieving a landmark climate agreement” with China to restrict carbon emissions: “I know this is going to take place over a long time, but – there are a lot of obstacles ahead, but this still marks a very big change from the stalemate between the U.S. and China…” NBC chief environmental affairs correspondent Anne Thompson could barely contain her excitement: “Absolutely, this is a huge step forward in the transition to a low-carbon economy, Andrea….[it] sends a powerful signal to the business world and the rest of the world….very, very big developments in the battle against climate change.”

NBC’s Anne Thompson Gushes Over U.S.-China Climate Deal; Frets GOP ‘Already Setting Up Roadblocks’

 

During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, NBC’s chief environmental affairs correspondent Anne Thompson enthusiastically promoted the global warming agreement between the United States and China that was announced on Wednesday, but fretted that Republicans were “already putting up roadblocks if congressional action is needed.” Anchor Brian Williams hyped that it was “[a] surprise announcement” and “a history making deal” that will “greatly reduce carbon emissions.” Those generous descriptions segued into Thompson’s report as she mentioned that deal between the two nations that were responsible for “producing 39 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases last year.”

 

Networks Excited By ‘Landmark,’ ‘Major,’ ‘Big’ Climate Deal

 

All three networks on Wednesday offered excited descriptions about a global warming deal struck with China by the Obama administration. According to Good Morning America’s Jim Avila, the President’s Asian visit was supposed to end with “toasts to the landmark global warming agreement.” In a follow-up story, Amy Robach parroted the President’s claim that it is a “breakthrough climate deal with China.” On CBS This Morning, Norah O’Donnell hyped, “President Obama will arrive in Myanmar this hour after striking a major deal with China on climate change.”

 

NBC Finally Acknowledges GOP Taking 53rd Senate Seat With Win in Alaska

 

Major broadcast network NBC broke its silence and joined fellow networks ABC and CBS on Wednesday night in covering the news that the Alaska Senate race has been called with Republican challenger Dan Sullivan being declared the winner over Democratic incumbent Senator Mark Begich. NBC Nightly News aired a 23-second news brief on the election result, which gives the GOP at least 53 Senate seats in the next Congress, with a 54th seat possible if Republican Congressman and challenger Bill Cassidy defeats Democratic incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu in the runoff election on December 6 in Louisiana.

 

Nets Ignore Far-Left Agenda of ‘Fringe’ Mob’s Attack on U.S. Sailors in Turkey

 

ABC, CBS, and NBC’s evening newscasts on Wednesday glossed over the radical left-wing ideology of the Turkish protesters who assaulted three U.S. sailors in Istanbul earlier in the day. ABC’s Martha Raddatz reported that the “the attackers [are] members of an ultra-nationalist group called the Turkish Youth Union, angry at what it calls ‘American imperialism.'” NBC’s Brian Williams underlined that “these were apparently the actions of a fringe group.”

 

NYT Writer Defends Gruber on MSNBC; Voter Expectations on Health Care Are ‘Completely Incoherent’

 

During a discussion on MSNBC’s The Cycle about the disparaging comments ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber made about the law’s passage and the “stupidity” of voters, New York Times writer and substitute Cycle co-host Josh Barro sought to defend him by blasting the expectations that Americans have about health care as “completely incoherent” and lying was the only solution to make them happy. Barro told fellow panelists and guest Lauren Fox of National Journal that “what drives me crazy about this story” is “Jonathan Gruber was right. Public opinion on health care policy is just completely incoherent.”

 

Chuck Todd Defends Obama’s ‘Bitter Americans’ ‘Cling to Guns or Religion’ Comments

 

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator ofMeet the Press, appeared on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show on Tuesday November 11, to promote his new book The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House. During his appearance, the NBC host defended Obama’s 2008 speech in which then-candidate Obama claimed “bitter Americans” “cling to guns or religion.” Todd argued that Obama’s “just observing the way an anthropologist would observe a society.”

 

Did Chuck Todd Say Too Much About MSNBC?

 

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, just released his latest book The Stranger: Barack Obama In the White House chronicling the Democrat’s first six years as president. While much of the book details the numerous political battles the administration was engaged in, three excerpts from the book are quite striking. Not only does Chuck Todd concede that MSNBC is openly leftist, the NBC host writes that “perhaps most frustrating to Team Obama was that even their allies weren’t always allies.”

 

Obama Set to Award Medal of Freedom to Media Ally Tom Brokaw

 

On Monday, the White House announced that President Obama would award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to former NBC Nightly News anchor and current special correspondent Tom Brokaw – among other 2014 recipients. Today news anchor Natalie Morales touted the announcement on Tuesday, noting: “Obama said in a statement, these citizens have made extraordinary contributions to our country and the world.” Brokaw has repeatedly taken the opportunity to boost or defend Barack Obama throughout his presidency. That made it no surprise that the commander-in-chief would want to reward such a loyal media supporter.

Chuck Todd Laments Obama As ‘a President Whose Potential Wasn’t Realized’

 

On Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd began writing Barack Obama’s political obituary, but did so in the most sympathetic way possible. Lauer cited a line from Todd’s new book on the President: “And you write that in the foreseeable future, quote, ‘He [Obama] will be a president whose potential wasn’t realized.’ He came to Washington promising to bridge the political divide, change the discourse. Has that been his biggest failure?” Todd replied: “I think when you look at it, that was the great promise of Barack Obama. The guy in 2004 showed up at the convention, he was the one that was going to break this polarization….I think he will admit some day that’s his greatest disappointment…”

 

NBC Channels Obama and Points to Low Turnout for GOP ‘Wave’ in 2014 Midterms

 

On Tuesday, NBC Nightly News channeled President Barack Obama from the day after the midterm elections and pointed to the low voter turnout for the election that saw Republicans gain control of the United States Senate as well as make additional gains in the House of Representatives. In a news brief, anchor Brian Williams highlighted the latest turnout estimate for “last week’s wave election for the GOP” as being “very bad” at “36.3 percent.” Williams noted that it would be the lowest in both “the modern era” and “since 1942, when a unified and occupied nation” was engaged in World War II when only 33.9 percent came out to vote.

 

CBS’s Nancy Cordes Again Bemoans Spending by ‘Dark Money Groups’ in Midterms

 

Following a story on campaign spending ahead of the midterm elections on October 30, CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes filed a similar report on Tuesday night’s CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley with the topic focusing specifically on the “dark money groups” that are not required to disclose their donors. In setting up Cordes’s story, anchor Scott Pelley pivoted from a report on corruption and brutal crackdowns by the authoritarian Communist regime in China to saying that “[w]ell, government even in America is becoming murkier because of campaign finance laws that have become nearly a free-for-all.” When the report ended, he hailed it as “insight from Capitol Hill” from Cordes.

 

Nets Cheered ObamaCare ‘Sign-Up Surge,’ But Bury New, Low Numbers

 

In March, all three networks heralded a “sign-up” surge in ObamaCare numbers ahead of a deadline. Yet, when the administration announced on Monday that the number of people who enroll in the program will be “significantly lower by the end of next year,” ABC, CBS and NBC ignored the downbeat forecast. Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer announced, “The Obama administration once again moving its target on ObamaCare…The government, tonight, is rolling back on expectations on the number of Americans who will sign up and that could have consequences.”

 

CBS Gives Bill Nye Platform to Denounce Those Who ‘Deny’ Climate Change

 

On Tuesday morning, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” appeared on CBS This Morning to promote his new book, and used his platform as an opportunity to trash individuals who question the existence of manmade climate change. Speaking about his book “Undeniable: Evolution and the science of creation” Nye argued that “it’s not a coincidence that the creationists also deny climate change. It’s a really important thing.”

 

Politico: ‘The Democrats’ Favorite Denier’ Senator Jim Inhofe

 

With the GOP set to officially take control of the United States Senate in January, Politico decided it was the perfect time to play up Democrats’ criticism of Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), incoming Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, for being “the Hill’s most flamboyant critic of climate research.” In a piece published on November 10, authors Elana Schor and Alexander Burns promoted how “Democrats aspire to make Inhofe the face of GOP knownothingism, while at least one Republican consultant says his style of skepticism could create headaches for candidates up and down the ticket in 2016.”

CBS’s Schieffer Empathizes with Obama: Did You Ever Say ‘Are We Ever Going to Get a Break?’

 

In his pre-recorded Face the Nation sit-down with President Barack Obama, CBS’s Bob Schieffer asked about putting more troops into Iraq, fighting ISIS, giving Congress a chance to act first on immigration and whether Democratic election losses were his fault, but he also devoted several questions to empathizing with Obama, as if Obama were a victim of circumstance and not responsible for failures or making situations worse: “You had a tough summer. We saw the rise of ISIS, the outbreak of Ebola, trouble in the Ukraine, illegal immigrants coming across the border, did you ever go back to the residence at night and say, ‘are we ever going to get a break here?’”

 

Halperin on ABC: GOP Must Take Risk and Confront Their Base

 

Appearing on ABC’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Mark Halperin co-host of With All Due Respect on Bloomberg, pressed the GOP to take “take some risks” after winning control of the Senate during this year’s midterm elections. Speaking during a panel discussion, Halperin argued that the GOP runs the risk “standing up to the Tea Party caucus and talk radio” but that they must take risks “if they want to do what’s good for their politics and good for the country.”

 

CNN’s Lemon: ‘Why Do People Vote Against Their Own Interests’ With ObamaCare?

 

CNN’s Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Alisyn Camerota stuck to the left’s spin about the results of the 2014 midterm elections on Thursday’s CNN Tonight, as they discussed President Obama’s Wednesday press conference. Lemon wondered, “Why do people vote against their own interests? Because if you look at West Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas…they put mostly Republicans in office…But they are the states that are benefiting the most from the Affordable Care Act.”

 

NBC: ‘Republicans Have Drawn Their Own Battle Lines’ By ‘Doubling Down’ On ObamaCare Repeal

 

In a report for Thursday’s NBC Today, White House correspondent Kristen Welker continued the network’s effort to preemptively blame Republicans for any gridlock that may occur in Washington following the GOP’s landslide win in Tuesday’s midterm election: “Republicans have drawn their own battle lines, doubling down on their pledge to repeal the President’s signature piece of legislation, ObamaCare, and vowing to approve the Keystone Pipeline, which the President has resisted.” Introducing the segment, fill-in co-host Willie Geist noted congressional leaders meeting with President Obama at the White House on Friday and wondered: “But can a lunch really do anything to break the long-standing gridlock in Washington?”

 

Nets Predicted Republican Doom With Hispanics, Yawn at GOP Surge

 

For years, liberal journalists have been predicting Republican doom with Hispanics, declaring that rage from the growing ethnic population would result in a permanent GOP minority. NBC’s Matt Lauer, for instance, wondered if the severe “damage” could be repaired. Yet, the Republican landslide on Tuesday was powered, in part, by a strong showing with Latinos. So far, this has been ignored by ABC, CBS and NBC.

 

IRS Admits They Never Looked for Lerner’s Missing Emails, Networks Skip Revelation

 

On November 5, Judicial Watch announced that the IRS admitted “that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the ‘missing’ emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.” So how many Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network stories have been dedicated to this latest revelation in the IRS scandal? 0.

 

CNN Hypes Laugh Similarity Between Joni Ernst and Disney Villain

 

On Friday’s CNN Newsroom, Brooke Baldwin played up the apparent similarity between Senator-elect Joni Ernst’s laugh and that of Cruella De Vil, the antagonist from Disney’s 101 Dalmations. Baldwin aired a short segment on Ernst and two newly-elected Republican women in Congress. She ended the part about the Iowa politician with her comparison: “Don’t forget about that laugh. Some people call it contagious; other people have likened it to this.” The anchor then twice played clips of Ernst laughing at her victory rally, followed by De Vil’s evil cackle.

MSNBC Pre-Spins Midterm Disaster: Dems Didn’t Tout Obama’s Successes

 

The liberals on MSNBC have already begun to pre-spin the reasons behind a possible Democratic disaster in Tuesday’s midterms: It’s because the party didn’t tout Barack Obama’s “accomplishments.” Host Ronan Farrow on Monday complained: “But, if these Democratic candidates are just flouting the President and at a time when he faces a tough environment on the hill already, sort of adding to his woes, do they risk alienating Democratic voters with that kind of divisiveness?”

 

NBC Continues to Have Doubts About a Possible GOP Senate Takeover

 

On Monday night, NBC continued to doubt the real possibility of the Republicans taking over control of the U.S. Senate following the midterm elections on Tuesday. Both NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams and NBC News political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd expressed reservations during the program’s opening five minutes, as Williams led off by describing the election as a “cliffhanger” with “several big races” that “have perhaps tightened.” Todd then followed with a segment reporting that “voters are conflicted” on who to vote for and, when added to their disgust with Washington, has created a situation where “eight of the most competitive Senate races are within four points and a whopping half of the nation’s 36 governors races are also too close to call.”

 

Brokaw: If GOP Wins Senate, ‘What Are They Prepared to Give to the Democrats?’

 

Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw was already urging Republicans support liberal agenda items if they win control of the Senate in Tuesday’s midterm election: The question then is, what are they prepared to give to the Democrats to meet them in the middle ground? What are they going to do about immigration? What are they going to do about the minimum wage?” Brokaw complained to fill-in host Peter Alexander: “Things have not been done in the last couple of years, in part, because both parties have staked out positions at either end of the spectrum and refused to meet in the middle.” However, Brokaw never wondered what Democrats were “prepared to give” to Republicans.

 

ABC to Offer Six Hours of Midterm Coverage…on the Internet

 

Considering that ABC’s World News Tonight failed to cover the midterm elections from September 1 to October 26, one might think the network isn’t interested in a possible Republican wave. ABC journalists are reinforcing that belief by promoting election night coverage: Seven hours of coverage. But six of those hours will be online only. Despite this, George Stephanopoulos hyped on Monday’s Good Morning America: “We’re covering this election more deeply than ever before.”

 

HBO Mini-Series on Limbaugh: ‘He’s a Liar and a Hatemonger – Makes Me Want to Puke’

 

Monday night on HBO viewers heard one of their stars call Rush Limbaugh an “idiot” and charge “he’s a liar and a hatemonger – makes me want to puke.” But it wasn’t Bill Maher. It was actress Frances McDormand in the second half of the pay network’s two-night Olive Kitteridge mini-series about the later years of life of a woman living in a coastal Maine town.

 

On PBS: Watch Hippie-Hypocrite Neil Young Sing ‘End Fracking Now’

 

On Thursday, Charlie Rose invited singer-songwriter Neil Young on his PBS show to promote his latest album and played a clip of the Woodstock-generation singer’s first single – basically an anthem against Big Oil called “Who’s Gonna Stand Up?” In the clip Young calls for the end of fossil fuel and fracking. Rose never once asked the environmental activist if he felt guilty about all the fossil fuels he’s used in his cars or his painting. Rose also never mentioned all the fossil fuels used in the promotion of Young’s over 50 year-long career in the production and transport of his vinyl records, tapes, CDs.
