What else explains newspapers' complete lies and half-truths about the wind industry?

Are Left Wing Foundations The Real Editors of Our Newspapers These Days?

Left-Wing Non-Profits Paying Big Grants to Newspapers for 'News Gathering'

"There is no doubt that journalism has fallen on tough times in this electronic era. Newspapers have been shutting down by the dozens and those that are left are shedding jobs, cutting salaries, eliminating benefits, and, consequently, covering fewer and fewer news worthy events. With advertising drying up and newspapers and other newsgathering organizations losing money something certainly has to give.

Many in the news industry see non-profit grant making as one of the ways to save detailed coverage of news that might otherwise go unreported. On the other hand, what does this money buy the grant givers? Does it buy them favorable coverage of the subjects and ideas they are in business to push?"

Now they have gotten all of our government  intelligence agency's on the same page and as a choir they are singing the same song.... " It was the Russians " 

But even Fox says the liberal media is just " Out of Touch " with the rest of the nation and that they need to get back in touch.

WRONG

They, and the political TOPs need to LIVE the experience of Main Stream America. Maybe a good 10 years of first hand experience is in order, and at some remote location where the land is their lifeline to reality. Maybe then they could appreciate places like our Forested, mountainous lands for what they are and need to remain. Functional and Serving even their needs, though from afar. Maybe they  can better appreciate the birds and other wildlife and their needs for the freedom outside the sanctuary of the septic cities.

New York Times to vacate 'at least eight floors' in Manhattan headquarters
By KELSEY SUTTON 12/16/16 10:55 AM EST

"It is also, frankly, too expensive to occupy this many floors when we don’t truly need them."

   Feed the masses ideals and lies using the press, a democracy's lifeline to the truth then allow it to become exposed for fraudulent biases discrediting itself to the point of no one believes in it. This creates a void of truth and the beginning of chaos while a new form of governance takes a seat at the head of the nation.  This, is what almost happened and is still in progress. With all attempts failed to spin the blame of why Trump got elected, one last ditch effort is underway to attempt an Electoral College Coo by Sunday. 

My thoughts from the beginning were that the info that took down the Dems this election came from inside or own government and today it was step by step rationalized and pointed out from where it came. Though this may be some time before being released in any article or newspaper. To embarrassing for them maybe ?

The newspapers were always older than most media and as of say 20 years ago, were already suffering from negative circulation trends resulting from demographic changes. Then came the Internet and they all started giving away their product online. This dealt a basically mortal wound to their non-digital business, but they figured they'd make up for it with their online advertisers. Such online advertisers never appeared in sufficient numbers to offset the aforementioned mortal wound. At the same time, other digital news sources grew exponentially online. So here we have a mortally wounded medium being trampled by competitors that never even existed 20 years ago. Wounded animals are dangerous. They are also susceptible to offers from nefarious deal makers who will send them money under the table so long as they print the dealmakers' propaganda lies. He who pays the piper calls the tune. That should NEVER happen to our free press. But it has. There need to be laws that stop this.

If money from oil companies makes research funded by them less reliable, or even bogus, then what does that make "news" funded by hardcore, left-wing foundations?

Seems like journalism crosses the line between 'news' and 'editorial' more than ever. Both are legit, necessary and fundamental to democracy, but there has to be a hard line of separation and a respect for the responsibility of journalists to the public to keep the two properly segregated. There have always been liberal and conservative news media and as long as the news and the editorial are each given their proper due, people can choose what sources suit them. Of course, the whole thing comes tumbling down when money starts controlling and picking the news.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
