Stupid Media Bias Tricks: The Global Warming Causes Blizzards Edition

It seemed that this would be a short week, with New Years and everything. But that didn't slow things down. Neither did the Blizzard that hit yesterday. Although there were some like MSNBCs Chris Hayes who didn't like the snide comparisons between the blizzard and his precious global warming theory.

Speaking of New Years and Climate Change, Huffington Post tried to scare people with some New Year's Eve Global Warming Nonsense. But Global Warming wasn't the only thing on the Stupid Media Tricks list. This week we learned that even when the POTUS was on vacation he could back away from a statement, and that a Public Inaugural can get really nasty especially when it is in the Big Apple.

We learned that if you don't like Pajama Boy you are an Anti-Semite and that Thomas Roberts thinks Ted Cruz is a birther.

Below are the stupid media bias tricks hinted at above plus many more from the last seven days. Headlines are linked to the full article (and will open a new window). When it is a broadcast story the video/audio will also be found at the end of the link.

So click on the links below and read about the stupid bias tricks of the last week:

Hayes opined against those who saw the irony.
