    but in an effort of putting all the facts out front on climate change,  a reporter could point out that in all the research and interviews, there are four people with actual degrees in the area that question climate change theory as it now stands and 842 that agree with the theory and that the four people that challenge it all work at the same think tank owned by a oil company owner's private foundation.    Bias of the speaker is always something that can be part of the background the reporter gives.  If a reporter is anything more than a stenographer that is.

    Would Watergate ever have unravelled if the reporters stopped with the Nixon Adminstration denies all knowledge and the paper refused to print all the background information they dug up?  That is basically all today's press would do.
