Fox News boss to talent: Cast doubt on climate science

See Media Matters for the story (and Wonk Room for the leaked memo):
Fox boss ordered staff to cast doubt on climate science
"In the midst of global climate change talks last December, a top Fox News official sent an email questioning the "veracity of climate change data" and ordering the network's journalists to "refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question." "
