Leave it to the left to politicize the catastrophic flooding seen in Houston, using the disaster in a feeble attempt to smear conservative media.
The committed liberals at Raw Story ran a reprint of a Newsweek article that asked whether it was gay sex or climate change that caused Hurricane Harvey.
Looking to denigrate the opposition, Raw Story included its own creative headline: “Right-wing media rushes to blame Harvey on acceptance of LGBTQ Americans.”
…because when pushing a political narrative, who has time for facts.
The article taps a minister, an obscure talk radio host and right-wing bomb thrower Ann Coulter, which Raw Story interprets as the “ring-wing media.” And Coulter specifically said the opposite, that she “doesn’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a Lesbian mayor.”
With blinded vision like that, how can one take serious anything the website puts out?
Newsweek’s Harriet Sinclair, citing “overwhelming evidence that adverse weather and climate change had a hand to play in the storm,” cherry picked and manipulated comments and a tweet to fit her agenda.
On a side note, how do you argue against logic that says “adverse weather” caused a storm?
The tongue-in-cheek tweet being from Coulter, who was responding to an article that claimed Hurricane Harvey represented climate change.
I don't believe Hurricane Harvey is God's punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than "climate change." https://t.co/K7d7mopY5Q

At least Newsweek had enough decency about itself to target “some on the right” in its headline.
But Raw Story, not saddled with credibility concerns, fabricated the “ring-wing media” narrative — smearing a wide spectrum of conservative media outlets without a shred of any real evidence.
