CBS News is venturing into the weather coverage as the network announced a content partnership with The Weather Channel. The collaboration between the two outlets will bring enhanced weather and climate reporting to CBS News viewers across the world.
“By bringing together CBS News and the Weather Channel’s weather teams and virtual view technology, we will not only be able to forecast the weather but show viewers what it’s really going to look like,” said Neeraj Khemlani, president and co-head of CBS News and Stations.
“This is a holistic partnership that brings together the scale of both companies’ reporting teams, technologies and audiences. In addition to the virtual forecasts and live reporting, we will also collaborate on field reporting and pair our investigative teams to expand our environmental investigative efforts. Together we will deliver deeper coverage of one of the most important stories of our time – the impact of the climate on the communities we live in.”
This new partnership merges the expertise and technology of two news organizations to deliver their audience leading in-depth weather reporting and immersive storytelling. The CBS News investigative team and the Weather Channel’s meteorological and newsgathering teams will team up for special investigative climate reports.
Furthermore, the collaboration brings live reporting from meteorologists Stephanie Abrams, Jim Cantore, Mike Bettes, and the entire Weather Channel meteorological and newsgathering team.
“This year, the Weather Channel celebrates its 40th anniversary, and there’s never been a more important time to provide viewers cutting-edge visual presentations and compelling storytelling about our weather,” said Byron Allen, founder, chairman, and CEO of the Weather Channel’s parent company, Allen Media Group.
“This new collaboration is designed to offer the CBS News audience the most innovative weather reporting, as well as greater reach for the Weather Channel’s brand. CBS News and the Weather Channel will work closely together to explore and investigate issues related to climate and our environment.”
Joe Scarborough: “They Should Go After Weapons of War”
Scarborough slammed Republicans and Fox News over the “bulls–t” disputes they raise whenever there is a mass shooting.
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough slammed Republicans and Fox News over the “bulls–t” disputes they raise whenever there is a mass shooting.
The massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, was the latest school shooting in the United States. 21 people died on Tuesday, including 19 children and two teachers.
Scarborough told co-host Willie Geist that pro-gun arguments that come after mass shootings reminded him of conspiracy theories in one animated commentary.
“It’s always Whac-A-Mole. You know, they say, ‘well, what about this conspiracy theory?’ You disprove it after spending days. ‘Okay, well, what about this?’ And it’s always Whac-A-Mole,” Scarborough said, per Mediaite.
“It’s always Whac-A-Mole! It’s always bulls–t! They always play the game. So they never have to talk about the children who are murdered, about all the deaths. One mass shooting after another mass shooting after another mass shooting.”
Scarborough added that it’s time to go after weapons of war and weapons that police cannot stop when a mass shooting occurs.
“Going after weapons of war. They should go after weapons of war. They should go after weapons that police officers can’t stop. That police officers … and body armor?” Scarborough said.
Ainsley Earhardt: “I Don’t Know How to Fix This”
“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said.
“FOX & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt became emotional when she was talking about the state of the country in the aftermath of the Texas mass school shooting that left 19 children dead.
In a transcript obtained by Barrett News Media, Earhardt said she longs for a day when the country can return to its post 9/11 state where people seemed to care for one another.
“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said. “That’s what the bible instructs us to do. It doesn’t say “love your neighbor if he or she is a Democrat or a Republican.”
According to Fox News, law enforcement officials said Salvador Ramos acted alone and was killed by a Border Patrol agent who rushed into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, without waiting for backup.
“Parents, take your children to church. I don’t know what’s going on in these individuals’ hearts, but they have a void,” said Earhardt.
“They have a hole in their heart, and they are evil and they are unhappy. Help them to get help. And I know it’s not always the parents’ fault because the parents are trying in many cases and when there’s mental illness involved, sometimes you’re at your wit’s end and there’s not much more you can do. But I don’t know what the solution is.”
Sara Haines: “We Must Fight for Red Flag Laws”
Haines said that it was difficult for her to process the level of grief that she was feeling at the time. She said the nation needs to red-flag laws.
The Texas school massacre that left 19 children dead has left a nation divided over gun control and how politics play a role in the perceived loopholes that allow people to own certain weapons.
On Wednesday’s “The View” co-host Sara Haines shared a conversation that she had with her husband immediately following the deadly attacks. Haines said that it was difficult for her to process the level of grief that she was feeling at the time. She said the nation needs to red-flag laws. The following conversation was published via Mediate.
“We must fight for red flag laws in every state because right now the people that protect guns are protecting it can limit,” said Haines. “Can’t we all agree that people that have a problem and can threaten people should not have a weapon for a period of time?”
Goldberg criticized Gov. Abbott for signing a number of bills that she claims, “made it easier for mass shooters to buy, carry, and own guns in his state.”
“Let’s apply his abortion laws to guns by deputizing citizens to sue anyone involved in gun violence. So, you sold an AR-15 at the gun show? See you in court. Does your neighbor have too big an arsenal?” Goldberg continued. “Call the cops.”
