The press now has been reporting the same story for a century.

” the Great Ice Barrier which fronts the continent with a wall of ice for 250 miles has receded at least 30 miles since it was first seen and surveyed. Sir James Ross, who went out on the earliest Antarctic expedition of the nineteenth century, and those who followed him, left clear descriptions of this tremendous ice frontage and its position. It was a cliff 150ft. high and 1000ft. thick. But now it appears to be continuing its century-long process of shrinking; and that process may have been going on for centuries.
The shrinkage of the Alpine glaciers of Europe is a well-known and care-fully measured fact.”

Three days later climate scientists were predicting the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
“We’re doing about the most we can do right now to study the possible collapse of the west ice sheet,” said Dr. Richard Cameron, NSF program manager for glaciology. “It has become an area of concern because we could be on the brink of a rise in sea levels.”
We’re seeing the west ice sheet on its way out,” said Cameron. “It seems to be doing something completely different than the east ice sheet. It has nothing to do with climate, just the dynamics of unstable ice.“

In many parts of the world geologists find signs that seem to point to a time when the sea level was much higher than it is now. In British Columbia, along the Rocky Mountains, and the Andes, and on many mountain ranges of the Old World also are prehistoric sea beaches, all at an average of 1,000 ft. above the pre-sent margin of the sea.
The formation of ice is not equal at both Poles; the Antarctic ice-cap is much the more extensive and more massive, and, they hold, it is actually still increasing by evaporation from the immense sea areas of the Southern Hemisphere and condensation over the great ice-covered Antarctic continent. With ice ever forming above and a sea gradually growing warmer below, the process must eventually overbalance, the undermined glaciers disintegrate, and the ice-cap break up. Mountain after mountain of ice will fall into the sea, be swept northwards by the currents, and melt, thus bringing about, but at a much more rapid rate, the threatened inundation of the land by the rising of the sea to its ancient level. Conceivably some such breaking-up of a polar ice-cap has occurred once before since man appeared on the earth. The Biblical deluge and the almost universal story, common to the mythology or traditions of peoples in all parts of the world, of a world-wide flood may have had its origin in the melting of the ice at the Pole and the pouring toward the equator of the pent-up waters.
The guest who said that on the NewsHour was Dr David Holland, math & atmosphere/ocean science professor at NYU. I had to update my running count of the sheer bias at that news outlet regarding their IPCC-/NASA-/NOAA-associated scientist guests vs skeptic scientists because of his IPCC association:

An update! Of all clubs, the Sierra Club just published and article called “There is No ‘Doomsday Glacier'”… calling out the Rolling Stone and others about hyperbolic adjectives regarding that glacier’s cyclical behavior. Maybe Tony’s making a greater impact on the narrative than I had realized! Please keep it up! It’s important that you keep an even keel… even while the tanker slowly reverses course.
