Being the mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, CBS Evening News kicked their climate change paranoia and fear-mongering to the next level by exploiting starving and malnourished children in impoverished Somalia to push the left’s radical climate change agenda.
Kicking off the shameless segment, anchor Norah O’Donnell previewed the politically manipulative story as being about the “climate crisis and its often heartbreaking consequences.”
“Somalia is one example where millions of people are suffering from severe drought and famine,” O’Donnell sneered one last time before turning to correspondent Debora Patta.
Taking over the preaching from O’Donnell, Patta lectured that “mothers here don't need climate experts to tell them why. They know it is hotter than it's ever been, and after more than two years of drought, there is nothing to eat.”
Patta acts like Somalia has never been an impoverished, desert nation with nothing but anarchy and no functioning economy prior to “climate change” becoming one of the left’s new obsessions.
Attempting to pull on their viewers’ heartstrings in an attempt to make them buy into the Marxist green movement’s agenda that the Democrat Party has bought into, Patta reported how “a ten-month-old baby girl is being admitted with severe mall nutrition and complicated by pneumonia.”
She never explained how “climate change” caused a ten-month-old baby to die of severe mall nutrition or pneumonia.
In fact, nowhere in this segment did Patta or O’Donnell explain how Somalia was affected by the warming weather. They can’t explain it because the country has been severely impoverished and dangerous to live in for decades.
The sub-message of this segment was basically for you to give up more of your liberty and standard of living so the Democrat Party can fix the climate. If you think that makes sense, then you must be a loyal CBS Eveninge News viewer. Everyone else knows that makes no logical sense.
This climate alarmism from CBS was made possible by Progressive. Their information is linked.

NORAH O’DONNELL: To the climate crisis and its often heartbreaking consequences, Somalia is one example where millions of people are suffering from severe drought and famine. CBS’s Debora Patta reports in depth from inside a Somalian hospital where starving children are fighting to stay alive. We do want to warn you that some of these images are disturbing.
DEBORA PATTA: These are climate change's youngest victims, a severely malnourished child is hospitalized every minute in Somalia, and mothers here don't need climate experts to tell them why. They know it is hotter than it's ever been, and after more than two years of drought, there is nothing to eat.
We've just arrived here at this hospital and, already, a ten-month-old baby girl is being admitted with severe mall nutrition and complicated by pneumonia. Baby Fatun opens her mouth to cry but there are no tears, only a silent scream.
Beds fill up quickly at Bay Hospital’s pediatric ICU ward in Baidoa. Every child here is in dire medical need. Moments later another new arrival and another emergency. Two-year-old Malyun is dying. Her oxygen level should be close to 100 but the reading is just 37. She's bloated from severe mall nutrition, her starving body is turning on itself. With blood sugar crashing, she doesn't even flinch as the nurse injects her with glucose. Her family is sick with worry. These scenes take a mental toll on the medical staff, says doctor Sayeed Yousef. It's so hard for you as a doctor.
DOCTOR SAYEED YOUSEF: We sometimes have nightmares.
PATTA: And those nightmares keep coming back. The next day, Malyun went into septic shock. We were, in fact, capturing her final hours, her final breaths. She has been hungry her whole life, and last night she died.
