CNN anchor Bill Weir took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction with Fox Nation, and he didn't mince words.
On Thursday, Fox Nation's Twitter account tweeted a link to a Fox News article titled "Climate doesn't cooperate with Al Gore's group's visit to Denver EPA hearings."
The story refers to Gore's "Climate Reality Project," a non-profit advocacy group. According to the article, which originally appeared in The Washington Times, Climate Reality Project members arrived in Denver for an EPA hearing and planned to hand out ice cream — but when they arrived, it was 58 degrees.
Weir, however, was not having any of Fox's sensational headline. He retweeted a shortened version the Fox News headline, along with his own clarification: "Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant f*cksticks." --Meghan DeMaria
