And that's the way it was ...

Some winters are “bone-chilling,” like this one has been, others are mild, and some like the 1972-1973 winter started early and harsh, but grew surprising mild. That was the same year Walter Cronkite was “the most trusted man in America” in 1972, according to polls. A 2009 CBS obituary for the journalist said, “Cronkite was the biggest name in television news, the king of the anchormen; in fact, he was the reporter for whom the term ‘anchorman’ was coined.

On Sept. 11, 1972, Cronkite cited scientists’ predictions that there was a “new ice age” coming. He called that prediction from British scientist Hubert Lamb “a bit of bad news.”

“But now -- unearthed from bowels of media archives -- comes none other than Walter Cronkite reporting on fears of a coming ice age in 1972. Having Cronkite's image and face discussing global cooling fears reveals the fickleness of the climate change claims.”

“Climate fear promoters switched effortlessly from global cooling fears in the 1970s to global warming fears in the 1980s. In the present day, the phrase 'global warming' has lost favor in favor of 'climate change' or 'global climate disruption' or even 'global weirding,’ Morano added. “'Settled science' has never seemed so unsettled.”

Students of Ho-Chi-Cronkite's political agenda know that, had he lived longer, he would today be standing four-square with statist climate liars.  But he's dead. Say amen.

In 1979, my father began his conversion from a consumer of the mainstream media to a skeptic. He was a GE Atomic Power Energy Division veteran and very knowledgeable about the technology and safety issues. What converted him was the reporting on Three Mile Island.

Of course we now know that Krankheit's reporting on the Tet Offensive was also grossly distorted and in that case treasonous.

Watching the liar press report on something one knows intimately is both laughable and painful. I try to minimize my exposure.
