By now, this type of ludicrous behavior at Fox should simply be expected. The on-camera nincompoops are only marching to the orders of Roger Ailses, There is little to no real reporting on actual events unless they fit the neocon-tea party narrative. Everything else gets sneers, inane banter aimed at your crazy bigoted old uncle and hysterical, paranoid aunt...or good old fashioned lies and misdirection. The audience knows what its getting and they are fine with it. They buy into it because they want to buy into it. Factual discussions about climate would induce severe cognitive dissonance that would ruin everyone's day. Such stuff does not get programmed.
The challenge for any good scientific communicator is how to slip some things past the director and leave the couch bozos fumbling for words...or at a complete loss. Such commentary is a much needed art form these days.
