Philip Newell is the associate director of science defense at Climate Nexus, where he works with scientists to understand climate denial and thwart the fossil fuel industry’s efforts to spread it. This work has been reflected by coverage in a variety of outlets, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed and HuffPo. When not slinging proverbial stones at polluters and their apologists, Phil enjoys listening to jam bands, watching cartoons, and making puns.

About the tracking pixel

When you paste this story into your backend, you will find a snippet of javascript at the bottom that looks like the code below. This is the tracking pixel. It is a commonly used tool that will allow us to measure the reach of our work. If you prefer to copy the tracking pixel separately, here it is:


<script type="application/javascript"> 
    window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', (event) => { 
      var img = document.createElement('img'); 
      var src = 'https://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1'; 
      src += '&tid=UA-172916447-1'; 
      src += '&cid=1'; 
      src += '&t=pageview'; 
      src += '&dl=' + encodeURIComponent('https://nexusmedianews.com/billionaires-decry-trumps-attack-on-press-even-as-they-enable-it-decde73488c8/'); 
      src += '&dt=' + encodeURIComponent('Billionaires Decry Trump’s Attack on the Press as They Enable It'); 
      src += '&dr=' + encodeURIComponent(window.location.href); 
      img.src = src; 
      img.width = 1; 
      img.height = 1; 
      img.setAttribute('style', 'display: none;'); 
      img.setAttribute('aria', 'hidden'); 
      img.setAttribute('role', 'presentation'); 
      img.alt	= ''; 
      document.body.appendChild(img); 
    });
