Twenty-eight percent of Fox News's reporting on climate change in 2013 was accurate, a major improvement from the 7-percent accuracy rating it achieved the previous year, according to a new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Fox News covered climate science 50 times in 2013, per the report. 36 of those reports included misleading information about climate science. More than half of the misleading coverage (53%) came from one program: The Five.
Other networks achieved far greater accuracy: 70 percent of CNN's 43 segments on climate change were entirely accurate, while 92 percent of MSNBC's 132 segments on climate change were entirely accurate.
