Glenn responded on radio and in this latest video blog to being called a liar by Rachel Maddow. Instead of being ashamed of her intellectual dishonesty, she went full steam ahead and actually played the entire video blog on her show, claiming Glenn is hiding the 'evidence' he thinks one snowstorm disproves global warming. One problem: Glenn clearly addressed her so called 'evidence' (a joke Glenn made) on the radio program, which has 8 million listeners. Not exactly how most would define hiding something. Watch ALL the clips and decide for yourself.
A couple of things to notice here as you watch:
1) Maddow never actually answers why she edited Glenn’s words. She never addresses it. Since she doesn’t disagree with our analysis, we’ll take that as her way of graciously admitting she was lying.
2) She says we were hiding her “evidence” but ignores that we talked specifically about it at length on a much larger platform. Why did she hide that fact from her audience? As we said on the 3rd largest radio show in America—her “evidence” was incredibly pathetic. Was it really worth covering AGAIN? It amounted to her claiming our “God is punishing Al Gore with all of this snow” joke, was a serious policy statement.
3) We should allow for the possibility that Rachael didn’t know we talked about this on the radio. She may mistakenly believe that all radio went out of business when her radio network and show failed.
The original clip and transcript...
NYE: These guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change
GLENN: Nobody's saying that. Stop, stop!
NYE: Are almost unpatriotic.
GLENN: Oh, boy! Hit the Mr. Sarandon bite again, will you?
VOICE: A chill wind is blowing in this nation.
GLENN: It's un American, unpatriotic, unpatriotic to claim. First of all, who has claimed that this snowstorm is proof that global warming doesn't exist? How many times have I said both for hurricanes and no hurricane, this doesn't one storm, one storm does not prove anything.
