IN AMERICA BALANCED OPINION MEANS THAT WE TAKE MONEY FROM ANYBODY
If you have the money to buy airtime in America, you will be heard, no matter how crazy your views are. In American Journalese, this is called balanced reporting. The balancing means that the media companies have to balance their books. For example, 95% of the world’s best scientists could bet their lives on the reality of global warming. An infomercial will be sponsored by an oil tycoon from Alaska who lives in Juneau, Alaska, and is witnessing the disappearance of the Muir Glacier from his porch, claiming that glaciers appear and disappear according to God’s will. From 1892 to 2005, The Muir Glacier has retreated more than 50 kilometers (31 miles)-http://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/repeat-photography-of-alaskan-glaciers/3/.
If God wanted man to use oil, God would have kept it close to the surface of the Earth. God put oil away in the ground, sometimes up to 5 miles deep, painted it black, the color of the Devil according to Caucasians, and still we defy God, drill a hole into the Earth and extract the messy, sticky, gooey, and devilish black stuff. Why? Because it gives us lots, and I mean lots of moolah. Assuming that the scientists are wrong, God is not wrong. If Mr. Oilman turns out to be wrong, there is no way to remedy the harm that his greed has done. Half of the world will be living on house boats. This is balanced reporting in America, the media company and oilman balance their books and the environment is unbalanced and heading for extinction.
