Hi, what are you looking for?

This is an awesome video, clearly not what FOX News wanted it to become. Of course, the playing field is not even. They start the segment with a bunch of typical anti-wind statements and as soon as Denise Bode starts to reply to them (or answer questions throughout the interview), the hosts bully her and speak above her to make her stop.

American Wind Energy Association CEO Denise Bode Takes on FOX News (on FOX News), Body Slams Them {VIDEO}

This is an awesome video, clearly not what FOX News wanted it to become.

Of course, the playing field is not even. They start the segment with a bunch of typical anti-wind statements and as soon as Denise Bode starts to reply to them (or answer questions throughout the interview), the hosts bully her and speak above her to make her stop.

This is an awesome video that a loyal reader just shared with me — clearly not what FOX News wanted it to become.

Of course, the playing field is not even. They start the segment with a bunch of typical anti-wind statements and as soon as AWEA’s CEO, Denise Bode, starts to reply to them (or answer questions throughout the interview), the hosts bully her and speak above her to make her stop.

The host continues to try to do so throughout. However, eventually Denise takes over and slams them on the issue of subsidies and wind’s cost-competitiveness.

One criticism is that Denise uses a little too much technical language at the beginning.

But continually repeating the fact that fossil fuels and nuclear have gotten totally unbalanced subsidies is a great feature of Denise’s response (though, could have been a little more). Her repetition on wind energy’s cost-competitiveness is also great.

Why do I have the feeling they won’t bring her back or if they do, they’ll let her speak even less.

Unfortunately, they’ll continue to spout the one-sided propaganda and this is, of course, one key reason why China is kicking our a** in the clean energy race. As our reader wrote, when sharing this with me, “If you give it a listen I think you’ll understand why so many people in the US don’t ‘get it’.  If one uses Fox as their information source, they’re screwed….”
