Diagnosing the Grand Forks Herald

Living around Grand Forks, North Dakota, the big local newspaper is the Grand Forks Herald. Overall I would say that what it prints about climate change is not nearly as bad as it could be. In North Dakota where the fossil fuel industry is so big, it may not be surprising if its coverage slanted strongly toward being hostile to the science. Instead of being that bad, it is the more mundane level of bad dominated by false equivalency.
