As Hillary Clinton announced that she’s running for president in 2016, the media focused on everything except this Tweet by her campaign manager that lists the four major tenets of her campaign:
This means that Hillary’s is the first major presidential candidate in history ever to make combating climate change a central issue of his or her campaign.
Of course, not a single Republican agrees that climate change is man-made.
But why did the media ignore this tweet? Is it because the corporations that own the six largest media companies don’t want climate change to be a major focus of the coming presidential campaign? As the world burns and sea levels rise, the corporate media appears to be under a conservative climate change “gag order”.
