That used to be me at airports with CNN. This is the first time I’ve complained about it though.

For all involved, I think it would be better if he were to wear a mask in public.

I like Jim Steele’s description;
Despite the data, the chief climate alarmist and digital book burner, the Joeseph Goebbels of climate change, Michael Mann, has been the media’s go to person for click-bait climate crisis narratives

Scissor, the most persuasive argument for getting folks to avoid CNN is forcing them to watch it at the airports. And I am talking before Zucker came along and dropped CNN ratings below their employee head count.

And then complain about what he sees on there

what are the words to describe such a braindead socialophobic wreck..

I was surprised he actually works out, looking at his bookish physique… I think he was more likely looking to do some young female observation (like on campus) and when a bunch of older adults populated the fitness room, he became agitated with the TV he had to watch instead.

This is Michael Mann’s typical narcissistic behavior. If he can’t get something his way or to suit himself, he complains long and loudly, even for minor or non-issues. This is his stock in trade. He once complained about a humorous weather discussion because the writer had the temerity to make fun of termites. Fox News? Haven’t they gone more marxist anyway?

Ain’t nothin’. I was sitting at a bar in a restaurant some years ago, just having dinner and a beer. The staff was playing the Al Sharpton talk show on the big TV over the bar, back when it was still on the air. Never went back.
The next worst (but most educational) was sitting at a bar in a restaurant eating dinner, and they were playing the finals of the national spelling Bee. I never understood how “fixed” it was, but, boy, was it fixed. The designated winner’s (Big, nice looking girl and a MacArthrur genius or something) last two words were “mitosis” and a German word for a fish, “Fishbaken” or something. I got both words. The losers in the finals got words like BOUILLABAISSE and a very long name for a rock crystal I had never heard of at that time, and haven’t heard again, and I have been looking for it. These are high school kids, they don’t study geology much in H.S., neither do they study French cooking. And, why they use non-English words in an English spelling Bee is odd.I didn’t complain to management, even though they should have been playing sports.

There is something deeply wrong with Mann. It was most evident not here but in his congressional hearing a few years ago (snippet still available on YouTube) when he said he had never called a skeptic a DENIER, then Judith Curry interrupted him saying “ yes you did, in your written testimony about me for this hearing”.

That level of self delusion in that compressed time frame evidences large mental defects of some sorts.

Might be advanced “oldness“: when old people assume they are too old to keep their mind tidy (and well trained) and make more and more unhinged and bizarre assertions and insist on being treated respectfully (while showing zero respect for others).

People often confuse that with neurological issues, but “oldness” is asserted (a mindful, logical process); it isn’t a biological process.

This is a remarkably stupid comment to make and very much an ‘own goal’ given it reveals Mann’s undoubted bias to the left and leaves him wide open to accusations that his research is also heavily biased.

While few on here would think Mann is anything other than very much to the left, politically,if he had any sense he wouldn’t be screaming this from the rooftops given how politicised the whole climate agenda has become.

Anyone trying to look objectively at Mann’s work must seriously question the integrity of the results he’s coming out with.

Political bias has undoubtedly become a huge issue in academia, especially in science where results are now weaponised very much for political purposes. A very sad reflection on today’s world,.

Notice, these people are already setting up the narrative of “Russian collusion” again? “Russian disinformation” has become another slur in their arsenal, along with racist, sexist, anti-vaxer. What is lacking are verifiable facts. Still, the Democrat Party worshipers in the media will invent a reality why their gods are so unpopular.

2016: Democrats lose – “RUSSIAN COLLUSION!”
Summer 2020: “The Russians are still interfering with the election!”
After the 2020 election: “Don’t you DARE question the integrity of the election. Don’t you dare do the thing we were doing nonstop for 4 years!”

I see Michael Mann knows as much about Fox News as he knows about the climate, or how to use a TV remote control. Fox News is the most pro-American network and is definitely not pro-Russian. He may be referring to one of the personalities who appears to be married to a Russian and is kind of ambiguous in what he says about the war.

I don’t think any of the personalities on Fox News are pro-Russian. One of them is very much anti-war in his outlook and looks with skepticism on every aspect of what we are seeing in Ukraine.

I think it is good to question what we are seeing. Things are not always as they seem.
