I think the light bulb may have gone on with this guy. From TalkingPointsMemo:
In addition to being mocked for its breathless coverage of Flight 370, CNN has also been under fire for the way it has covered climate change. Zucker on Monday defended the network’s approach to the issue.
“Climate change is one of those stories that deserves more attention, that we all talk about,” he said, “but we haven’t figured out how to engage the audience in that story in a meaningful way. When we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audience’s part.”
Translation: Nobody cares. ZZZZzzzz.
In other news…
Game show host Pat Sajak caused a major uproar in social media circles on Tuesday, writing on Twitter Monday night that “global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends.”
I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.—

That’s unfortunate. A number of global warming alarmists I know are in fact patriotic and not racists, but they are severely misguided in their belief system.
But, I laughed at this one from Sajak:
Very hot weather: "We're all going to die!" Very cold weather: "There's a difference between climate & weather, moron!"—
