creation= making something out of nothing

Sure, maybe the scientific data behind the climate-change theory is all phony. But that doesn't mean we should question the theory, the New York Times assures us. 

The evidence pointing to a growing human contribution to global warming is so widely accepted that the hacked material is unlikely to erode the overall argument.

The theory of man-made climate change is widely accepted because scientists have offered evidence to support that theory, and the media have conveyed that evidence to the general public. In other words, the American people think that way because the media-- with the New York Times in the vanguard-- instructed them to think that way. 

Now the evidence that the media fed us has been called into question. But the Times sees no reason to revisit the question, because public opinion has already been formed. 

On the sixth day the New York Times created public opinion. And the Times saw that public opinion was good. On the seventh day the Times rested.
