Mary Ellen Harte: Mainstream Media Fails Again: Girlfriend Killing Buries Climate Change Protest
Obviously, the New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, and other US mainstream newspapers, as well as broadcast NPR, believes it's more important for the public to know about the girlfriend killing involving a South African athlete than the coalescing US protests against governmental inaction on climate change.
Carbon Tax Would Hurt Farmers
Politicians like Boxer and Sanders will always pretend to be going after oil and coal companies. But the fact of the matter is that the products oil and coal companies sell to consumers (gas and electricity) are already taxed at exorbitant rates with no discernible impact on these industries. None.

But knowing that the American farmer is one of the biggest consumers of fossil fuels (diesel and fertilizer), you’d think even ideologues like Boxer and Sanders could connect the dots and tell us the truth: that our grocery bill is about to go sky high if they get their way.
