Fox Told Staff To Cast Doubt On Climate Change

Another internal Fox News email via Media Matters, this one from vice president of news Bill Sammon on the network's policy on global warming:

Given the controversy over the veracity of climate change data ... we should refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question. It is not our place as journalists to assert such notions as facts, especially as this debate intensifies.

The backstory here.
