Politics in America

Laurie David and Gene Karpinski report at Huffington Post:
Over the past ten months, presidential candidates have made 16 appearances on Meet the Press. In the nearly three hundred questions [host Tim Russert] has asked the candidates, not once has he uttered the words "global warming." Not once.

At the two debates Mr. Russert has moderated, he has found time to discuss a national smoking ban, the drinking age, Bible verses, baseball, and even UFOs but not once did he ask how candidates would address the climate crisis.
Venezuela, meanwhile, is having an intensive, country-wide debate on modifications to its Constitution. That serious political discussion is widely referred to in the U.S. media as "undemocratic" or an effort to establish a "dictatorship."
