LA Times Got The Facts All Wrong On Renewable Energy
From Think Progress
Yet again, the Los Angeles Times has published an attack on renewable energy masquerading as journalism. The front-page Friday article, “Taxpayers, Ratepayers Will Fund California Solar Plants,” commits the journalistic faux pas of not even citing or quoting the “other side” in the debate about the true cost of solar power. More importantly, it gets the facts wrong. Very wrong.
I’ve contacted numerous people at the Times for a correction or a retraction because, frankly, I’m tired of the LA Times getting it so wrong on renewable energy issues. I’m not sure what is the source of such poor reporting, but regardless of the source there appears to be a consistent pattern. I urge readers to contact the Times to share their concern about accuracy and fairness in reporting. (Letters to the editor: email@example.com).
