The Washington Post has no shame.  Here’s the beginning of their editor’s article about Hurricane Florence:

YET AGAIN, a massive hurricane feeding off unusually warm ocean water has the potential to stall over heavily populated areas, menacing millions of people. Last year Hurricane Harvey battered Houston. Now, Hurricane Florence threatens to drench already waterlogged swaths of the East Coast, including the nation’s capital . If the Category 4 hurricane does, indeed, hit the Carolinas this week, it will be the strongest storm on record to land so far north.

President Trump issued severalwarnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice.

So far, so good.  But the next paragraph is so ridiculous, I can’t even believe that a major newspaper could print it:

Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.

Wait, what about the Russians?  Didn’t they also have something to do with it?

This is just more in a long line of ludicrous accusations against the democratically elected President.  I guess if Hillary had won back in 2016, this hurricane wouldn’t exist, right?

Journalists complain about “fake news” accusations all the time, but they do nothing — absolutely nothing — to help their cause.  And really, all they have to do is tell the truth.
