Hurricane Ian: CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC tout climate change more than 600 times in coverage

Climate change was a central topic of conversation throughout on-air coverage of Hurricane Ian, with the phrase mentioned across CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC more than 600 times in a one-week period.
MSNBC was not far behind, with climate change getting mentioned in coverage of the hurricane 212 times, mostly during primetime shows.
For their part, CBS News made note of climate change 61 times, while ABC News echoed the phrase 27 times, and NBC News 23 times.
MSNBC’s "The ReidOut" host Joy Reid in particular took ample time last Wednesday to discuss climate change with fellow network anchor Ali Velshi.
One of the network’s meteorologists, Michelle Grossman, also discussed climate change in the context of Hurricane Ian.
We don’t see that often and that is a connection with climate change," Grossman said.
In a separate segment, "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski took it a step further and claimed that Hurricane Ian was the result of "human-caused" climate change.
Lemon noted that meteorologists have said Hurricane Ian could enter "another period of rapid intensification" and asked Jamie Rhome what effect climate change has had on the "phenomena."
Lemon, appearing to be unsatisfied with the answer, again pressed Rhome on what effect climate change could have on the phenomena.
The claim that Hurricane Ian was in part or in whole the result of climate change has also popped up in recent days in print articles scattered across the internet.
A recent Time magazine article said the "science is well known" that climate change created the conditions for Hurricane Ian.
Major liberal media networks have frequently blamed a number of natural disasters on climate change in the last several years.
