On March 2, a global warming protest in Washington, D.C. was buried by nearly a foot of snow. And a new study warns that the Earth could be in for a 30-year cooling trend. Reality is not cooperating with the network news’ global warming theme, yet reporters are unwilling to even discuss the possibility that the Earth is cooling.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/media-myths/media-myth-networks-stick-warming-theme-despite-avalanche-chilling-news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Media Myths MRC Business 2000 2008 2009 atmospheric cap climate Coal Cooling data earth energy feb found global Gray March network networks news obama obamas plan record report scientists search Snow study tax temperature Temperatures trade trend warming washington year years Wed, 04 Mar 2009 22:55:00 +0000 admin 30124 at http://mrc.org Dear NY Times: Shrinking Trade Deficit is Bad News http://mrc.org/correcting-record/dear-ny-times-shrinking-trade-deficit-bad-news <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/donald-j-boudreaux-phd">Donald J.

One example that hits close to home here in Michigan is that the U.S. dollar is now worth less than the Canadian dollar. This is akin to the Detroit Red Wings losing 8-0 to the Montreal Canadiens. </p> <br /> <p >     But currency markets are much like the market for any other goods.

Even the recent debate in Michigan, which was supposed to <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/09/us/politics/09debate-transcript.html?_" />focus on economic issues</a>, was less than illuminating. The major GOP candidates largely have confined themselves to generic statements in favor of smaller government, less waste, and extending the Bush tax cuts.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/commentary/real-debate-questions-gop-candidates" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Commentary MRC Business candidate congress Debate economy election ethanol GOP government healthcare insurance president presidential SocialSecurity Spending taxes trade Welfare Wed, 17 Oct 2007 15:01:36 +0000 admin 29630 at http://mrc.org Trade Secrets http://mrc.org/special-reports/trade-secrets <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/charles-simpson">Charles Simpson</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bmi/reports/2005/Trade_Secrets_Executive_Summary.html">See Executive Summary </a></p> <br /> <p>CNN promotes “Lou Dobbs Tonight” as “news, debate and opinion.” But it doesn’t explain that Dobbs defines those words his own unique way. “News” is often economic distortions presented as fact. “Debate” doesn’t always mean that both sides get to comment.
