Recently a program on the Fox News network called “America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum” aired a segment which claimed that pollution was good for the environment. Fox also published an article on the very same subject, while citing a study recently completed by Auburn University. In typical fashion Fox chose to trumpet out of context facts to get attention, while off-handedly mentioning their entire segment’s premise was untrue.
