Journalistic Integrity Slows To Less Than A Trickle

In December Australian Broadcasting Corporation determined that a drought in Africa is the worst in century, and they knew this because a guy in his 30s who sells tourist handicrafts told them so.

    From 2015…

    This is totally untrue. Vic Falls has not dried up, and a ‘dry’ falls is, in fact, part of a very normal, yearly cycle. There is always water (lots of it) on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls, and late in the dry season (October/November), very little water reaches the Zambian side of the Falls.

    African Travel and Tourism Association chairman Ross Kennedy says: “Traditionally, Victoria Falls is at its driest at this time of year, and often before the rainy season begins, the Zambian side does come close to drying up, with just a small amount of water flowing over in some places. This is simply because the falls are slightly lower on the Zimbabwean side.

    However, due to exceptionally low rainfall in the catchment area during the last rainy season, the water level is at its lowest since 1996. The water levels will continue to drop as usual until the rains start in the catchment area north of Victoria Falls.”

    These people are crazy. In Arizona right now they claim we are in a 21 year drought! Meanwhile, the lake reservoirs are 98% full, where as last year they were 81% full. Just scare tactics for more research funding I guess.

      Obama: My Plan Makes Electricity Rates Skyrocket

      “Can you get the American people to say this is really important and force their representatives to do the right thing…”

      And what is the right thing?

      Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans | Full Documentary | Directed by Jeff Gibbs

      To get the American people to pay more for electricity in order to make to make Blood & Gore multi-millionaires and all of the other Wall Street cronies of the liberal progressive movement fabulously wealthy.

      It is pure robbery based on a complete lie… and the thankfully for the Progressive Left they have a constituency that is too stupid to do their own research and read the fine print: mindless zombies that will lap anything the billionaire class media puts in front of them.

        I was shocked Michael Moore produced this but it does distract from his 50 million dollars.
        Jeff Gibbs story was quite an environmental deflowering.
        We are all whores for the right amount of money.
        Blood and Gore must have been the internal name for their company. How could an employee not call it that?

    Are you saying that these things are cyclical?
    Who’d a thunk it?
    But in the end we are all doomed.
    Doomed I say.

    In the mean time I’d go for a Big Mac and a chocolate shake.

    Aw c’mon.. asking one person and accepting what they say (as long as it is alarmist) without question is very scientific journalism
