Global Temperatures Are On The Rise, But Media Coverage Is Not

Last year was the hottest year on record, and the impacts of climate change seem more obvious than ever. Therefore, it only makes sense that the news devotes more time to covering this critical subject.

Au contraire!

Despite the already tangible consequences of climate change, broadcast news programs gave five percent less airtime to climate change in 2015 than in 2014. A Media Matters study breaks down each network’s coverage, and the results are not encouraging.
