Climate scientist Katherine Hayhoe revealed this week that CNN had not aired an interview with her, which allowed the network to give contributor Rick Santorum more time to “spread disinformation.”

During a Sunday panel on CNN, Santorum had rejected a government report on climate change, and he accused climate scientists of having a monetary agenda.

“If we didn’t have climate change, we would have a lot of scientists looking for work,” the CNN contributor scoffed. “To say that scientists have a consensus — the reality is that there’s lots of disagreement out there about what is causing this.”

On Tuesday, Hayhoe explained on Twitter that CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 had invited her to speak on the program, but her segment was cut.

“Instead, they give more airtime to Santorum, so he can to continue to spread disinformation,” she wrote.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court rejected GOP efforts to reduce the ballot receipt deadline for mail-in voters in North Carolina from nine days to three.

The decision came shortly after the justices also declined to grant a stay blocking the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's order extending the deadline in that state.

On MSNBC Wednesday, anchor Joy Reid broke down how Joe Biden has more concern for the health and safety of President Donald Trump's voters than the president does himself.

"There are now just six days left for America to decide who will lead our country for the next four years," said Reid. "Now at a breaking point and desperate for progress on the economy, race relations, and a coronavirus crisis that has taken more than 228,000 lives and infected millions more. In the face of these numbers, Trump continues to utilize his favorite form of gaslighting, which is lying through his teeth on the COVID surge, even getting the so-called White House Science Office to say Trump ended the pandemic, as the nation hits record cases and hospitalizations."

President Donald J. Trump joked Tuesday about the coronavirus pandemic that's plagued his own country, killing more than 227,000 Americans to date.

According to the CDC, the seven-day average of new cases is nearly 70,000 -- a record number that is only expected to get worse. The COVID Tracking Project cites that more than 42,000 people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19, up from an estimated 30,000 one month ago.
