There is something strange about the news coverage of the climate change conference, which is currently taking place in Paris. I listen to the news regularly. Although photojournalists are covering the protests extensively on every station, I have only heard one announcer explain why the protestors are on the street during this conference. Usually, there is no explanation, which is strange. What are the protestors protesting? Do they not support the controlling climate change? Do they object to having a major meeting in Paris? Do they object to France being involved in the meetings? Finally, when this one man said something he did it he did it in a throwaway manner that is he did it as a side note. He said they were protesting against the French Government’s crackdown on their civil rights after the recent ISIS-inspired attacks in that city. My question is why is there this strange coverage by the media. Or, to be more honest, this strange lack of coverage? The only thing I can figure is the media wants to hide the purpose of the protests. Perhaps they want to give the false impression that the protestors are objecting to the conferences. This begs the question, “Why?” As is usually the case in complicated situations, the simplest explanation is the correct explanation. I think we can understand if we follow the money. The fossil fuel industry supports the media. URL: Comments Invited and not moderated
