<p>Whenever liberals get upset about something, its almost a guarantee that the broadcast networks will do a story channeling their fears. That was the case Wednesday morning, as ABC&rsquo;s <em>Good Morning America</em> and NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> seized on left-wing environmental activists being in hysterics over President Trump&rsquo;s executive order rolling back excessive environmental regulations imposed by the Obama administration.</p>

<p>At the top of <em>GMA</em>, substitute co-host and <em>World News Tonight</em> anchor David Muir proclaimed: <strong>&ldquo;President Trump under fire. The new backlash over his executive order rolling back President Obama&rsquo;s climate policies.&rdquo;</strong> In a report that followed minutes later, correspondent Mary Bruce breathlessly cited an unhinged statement from liberal opponents of the action: <strong>&ldquo;But this morning, environmentalists are vowing to fight it. One group describing it as the single biggest attack on climate action in U.S. history, period.&rdquo;</strong></p>
