It is shameful that a news organization should take such a stance and present such statements as “Fortunately, Vox steps up with a fact-based map and explainer on why right now it is particularly cold in the U.S. but relatively warm in the rest of the world, and Discovery lays out why record cold years are a thing of the past.”

The reality is that the past 12 months have seen record cold in many parts of the world, including snow and unusual cold in the Middle East, a deadly blizzard and unusual cold in the Himalayas, the complete freeze-over of the Great Lakes, the record growth of Antarctic ice which even threatens to block shipping lanes between it and South America, along with unusual cold throughout North America which has brought winter late and early in 2014, yet Reuters delights in its own denial.

Selective presentation of the news doesn’t enhance a news organization’s reputation. We all look forward to a return to “Just the facts, ma’am”
