ABC News just announced that right-wing talk-radio host Laura Ingraham will be their newest political contributor.

ABC can do better. Ingraham is known for climate denial and racist rhetoric on immigration. She has said that Latino immigrants will turn America into a "hellhole," called their children "anchor fetuses", and mocked Hispanic accents on air. On climate change, she insists that the scientists are wrong: I'm stockpiling SUVs... I think we're getting cooler, probably not warmer." 

Climate change isn't about politics -- it's about science. There should be no place for false science or discrimination and hatred on broadcast television news.  

Tell ABC they were wrong to hire Laura Ingraham, and to replace her with a more civil voice at once!
