That is not the point, it is your perspective despite seemingly not having looked into the issue that extensively. If you read (at least a summary of) the IPCC reports and still conclude that it's unknown and we are powerless to affect any change then that would be one thing. You can make money as a scientist either way, in fact skeptics in many cases make a hell of a lot more money - the status quo carbon-based economy is obviously extremely lucrative. You really think that joining the 97% consensus of climatologists at this point is giving them more money despite the fact that congress has taken no action on the issue for years? The one's making more money are the skeptics in almost all cases.
As for FOX, I'm not particularly more impressed by the quality of journalism from other network news either, so I'm not appalled by FOX being the root of all evil as some tree-hugging hippie liberals may be. However, I sincerely believe that their business model that has proven so successful primarily emphasizes entertainment and/or ideology instead of journalism which has in turn influenced other (potentially jealous) networks to adopt similar entertainment-based news. Look at CNN today, with the exception of a couple shows, it's a complete joke and in my opinion FOX is more responsible than any other station for starting/driving that unfortunate trend. If you really want to understand issues then you have to look beyond network news anyway, but journalism in the mainstream media has been gradually dying off for a while now. I also don't agree it's a straight up liberal-conservative thing. Granted, that's a big part of people's anger toward Fox or MSNBC, etc but I have plenty of conservative/libertarian friends who despise the example that FOX sets and feel their news (including daytime supposedly objective programming like Megyn Kelly, Fox & Friends) are more representative of the tea party than true conservatism. I really don't like more than one or two programs on MSNBC either because I think their lacking journalism is a poor representation of liberal ideology anyway. FOX isn't nefarious, but it's easily the most striking example of bias and deliberate dishonesty of the mainstream television networks.
