79% Want #Environmental News, Not @Beyonce
A new report from Project for Improved Environmental Coverage shows environmental news coverage made up less than one percent of headlines in 2014. While nearly 80% of American want to know more about environmental news stories, Beyonce was mentioned 11 times more than stories about deforestation and five times more than those about the state of our oceans.
“The environment intersects with a number of other issue areas people care a great deal about, like health, the economy and national security to name a few,” Todd Pollak, the non-profit’s co-director, told Bloomberg News. “And we know Americans want more.”
