Bill Weir is not impressed with Fox News site’s weather story

CNN anchor Bill Weir didn’t mince words in his assessment of a Fox Nation post.

“Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings,” read the headline of a post on Fox News’ opinion and aggregation site. The story, from the Washington Times, noted that while Gore’s group has linked global warming to hot temperatures, Denver was 58 degress and rainy on the day of the hearings.
