CBS News Calls Paris Climate Agreement a 'Treaty' Five Times. This truly is a form of "fake news"

Well... It's no wonder most of the Democrats in American think this is a treaty:


Every major news outlet is reporting that President Trump will likely cancel the controversial Paris Climate Agreement. 

President Barack Obama intentionally avoided signing a climate treaty because it probably wouldn’t have passed the Senate. 

 But that hasn’t stopped CBS News from calling it a “treaty” on five separate occasions since the first Paris climate summit in November 2015, and letting a guest falsely claim it had been ratified.

 Perhaps CBS staff need a basic refresher in civics. By mischaracterizing the agreement as a legally binding treaty, CBS knowingly misled viewers regarding the Paris Agreement’s legal authority and government approval.

 This includes CBS This Morning co-hosts Norah O’Donnell and and Charlie Rose, as well as then-CBS Evening News host Scott Pelley. 

 Article II, Second 2 of the Constitution specified that the president “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.” 

 As The New York Times reported in 2014, then President Barack Obama intentionally did not pursue a legal treaty because “there is no chance that the currently gridlocked Senate will ratify a climate change treaty in the near future, especially in a political environment where many Republican lawmakers remain skeptical of the established science of human-caused global warming.”

 Nevertheless, CBS still misled its viewers.
