Big Three Ignore Major Collapse of ‘Radical Net-zero ESG Climate Policies’

February 19th, 2024 4:38 PM

After news broke that four financial leviathans managing trillions of dollars had abandoned a massive environmental, social and governance (ESG) pressure group, ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News ignored the story in their evening coverage.

Financial giants including BlackRock, State Street, JP Morgan and Pimco withdrew from Climate Action 100+ over apparent fears that such a meeting would violate federal antitrust law, The New York Times reported. In particular, these companies reportedly feared the next phase of the Climate Action 100+ plan to move from pressuring companies to disclose ESG data to pressure companies to lower their emissions or use “fewer fossil fuels.”  Despite the incredible impact of this ESG apocalypse which a number of lawmakers responded to, the big three networks ignored this monumental victory for consumers. NBC Nightly News, ABC World News Tonight and CBS Evening News ignored the story during their Feb. 15 and Feb. 16 evening broadcasts. Instead, the outlets expectedly found time for less-consequential news.

All three networks somehow managed to find time to cover Stephanie Clifford, professionally known as Stormy Daniels, the evening after this massive ESG news broke. The same night, ABC World News Tonight brought its viewers the heartwarming news that someone’s lost wedding ring had been recovered from a dumpster, alongside the important news that one professional athlete had punched another. The following day, ABC ignored the story again, in favor of reporting on a lost-and-found guitar and interviewing Prince Harry. 

Beyond keeping viewers updated on Daniels, CBS Evening News checked in on how Miami Beach Mayor Steven Meiner is preparing for spring break on Feb. 16. CBS also covered the story of the missing guitar, but not the hasty demolition of a massive threat to American energy and freedom.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) celebrated the mass exit from Climate Action 100+, which he described as a “collusion to advance radical net-zero ESG climate policies” on an X post. “We just scored a big victory against the woke takeover of American financial organizations,” he said.

Massie mentioned his work with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) warning companies not to engage in illegal activity in pursuit of ESG investing. “This is great news for economic freedom,” he added.

Meanwhile, Jordan offered his remarks in a separate post, “Today’s decisions by JPMorgan and State Street are big wins for freedom and the American economy, and we hope more financial institutions follow suit in abandoning collusive ESG actions.”
