KMOV Interviews Noted Climatologist Dana Loesch About Global Warming

Whooo-eee! Some top-notch journalism in St. Louis tonight! First, the wingnuts freak out because St. Louis business Build-a-Bear created an online animation that acknowledged that global warming is real and a threat to the polar ice caps.

Then KMOV, not content with leaving a great "wignuts freak out over nothing!" story alone, decides to get to the bottom of things by interviewing noted global warming expert Dana Loesch:

Among Loesch's important observations:

1. She won't allow her kids to watch the videos because they're "kooky."
2. The owners of Build-a-Bear likely eat tofu and wear Birkenstocks.
3. It's "political preaching" to teach children about scientific consensus.

KMOV decided to start Christmas a little early this year, by giving the sweetest gift of all: blissful, blissful ignorance.


  1. think globally, freak locally

  2. Such a typical local "news" story about nothing of any importance. I don't understand people who like to stir up controversy for the sake of the argument. Dana does nothing more than give good soundbites for those who can't think for themselves.

  3. OMG, like, don't you realize Dana Loesch is an expert on global warming AND on IP law AND on whatever it was she was an expert about on KMOV a couple months ago?

    Like, I can't believe she would really do this because, like, you know, she hates the mainstream media so much.

    You know.



  4. I am so glad you are calling out KMOV on this....I am having a lot of trouble understanding why they continue to give her so much air time. She opens her mouth and proves that she really has nothing relevant or coherent to say. As usual, when she doesn't have anything significant to say, she resorts to insults. It's a shame that we all can't be as hip as Ms. Loesch believes she is.

  5. They give her airtime because she's a Jamie Allman protege, and that quack used to be on KMOV. That has to be the connection. SOMEONE has to be pulling strings for her to get KMOV airtime.

  6. I agree with all the comments. This is outrageous.
