article imageScientific American editor told not to talk climate change on Fox

By Michael Thomas     Apr 30, 2014 in Environment
A Scientific American magazine editor was apparently told by a producer of the show 'Fox and Friends' that he was not to talk about climate change.
According to Talking Points Memo, editor Michael Moyer appeared on Wednesday morning's episode of Fox & Friends. The segment was about future tech trends, and Moyer was asked to talk about what he considered the number one trend for the future.
When he suggested that the number one trend would be the impact of climate change, a producer apparently told him to pick another topic. Moyer on the Scientific American blog explained the incident in full detail, saying that the rejection of climate change as a topic happened the day before his appearance on Fox & Friends.
"To be honest I’m surprised this is garnering as much interest as it seems to be," he said in the post.
He says this because a recent study found that Fox News airs misleading information on climate change an astounding 72 percent of the time.
Other tweets from Moyer show more bizarre experiences on the set of Fox & Friends including one where he described the show's makeup girl as believing that the missing Malaysian Airlines plane is hidden in a military base somewhere.
