Inconvenient Truth: An Update

“When will we see a story about increasing levels of manmade greenhouse gases being a sign of progress? A story that points out that our use of affordable sources of energy continue to spur increases in global productivity, health, longevity, and quality of life in general?

Accuracy in Media: A New Spin on the Spinners Spin

Accuracy in Media (AIM) is a New Right website that claims dedication to promoting “fairness, balance and accuracy in news reporting.” But this post gives a wonderful example of how twisted this “impartial” media monitoring has become. AIM assails MSNBC-TV host Keith Olbermann for suggesting that there might be a top-down, pro-Bush bias in his organization. Not possible, AIM claims, because NBC is owned by GE, which famously acknowledges that climate change is a real and pressing problem - in obvious contradiction to the Bush administration's position.
