Joshi's jaw-dropping response: "They're a smaller country, and they've got lots of sun. Right? They've got a lot more sun than we do." In case that wasn't clear enough for some viewers, Joshi went on: "The problem is it's a cloudy day and it's raining, you're not gonna have it." Sure, California might get sun now and then, Joshi conceded, "but here on the East Coast, it's just not going to work."


What can you expect from a Republican't-centric broadcaster, reporting at a level akin to fellow can't supporters

Well, anyone that watches Fox and thinks they will provide facts gets what they deserve. The National Inquirer has more credible reporting and being a newspaper it doesn't lean into the camera and shout to underline the point. It's still drivel, but at least it's an entertaining while one is pinching off a loaf or two.

I wouldn't mind bias so much if it was at least intelligent. This is just embarrassing.

Solar has huge potential in the US. With well-funded research and new ideas like these spinning tops this is the kind of thing that will inject a spark of life back into the economy creating manufacturing jobs, export markets, cheaper energy and - not least - an end game for dangerously polluting fossil fuels.

Fox news isn't biased, silly. They simply speak for the Republican party(Actually just the super-rich portion). It would be like calling a presidential candidate biased for voting for himself.

Rather than having a circle-jerk about what some unknown, idiotic reporter blurted, why aren't you guys asking WHY this is true, after four years of a purportedly pro-alternative-energy Democratic presidency, during two years of which they had an overwhelming majority in both houses of legislature, including a trillion-dollar stimulus program Democrats parceled out as they saw fit, and during one year of which the PResident didn't even follow a budget?

But no. This is obviously the fault of Republicans. Oh, and it's the fault of one TV station. Fap-fap-fap. :roll:
