Media critics charge that corporate mass media outlets bombarded readers and viewers with inane and irrelevant stories in 2004, while ignoring others of grave importance. Among them:

"Global Warming and Climate Change. No credible scientist disputes it any longer...

The Resurgence of Nuclear Power. Leave it to the Bush administration to promote nuclear power as its "green" solution to global warming, particularly in export to China and other developing countries...

The Politics and Economics of Oil permeate everything from the economy to foreign policy, but are never discussed directly by the media."
