Bill O’Reilly: If Bush Deserves to Be Treated Fairly Vis-a-Vis Iraq, He Deserves to Be Treated Fairly on Global Warming

Bill O’Reilly was right (July 7 FNC O’Reilly Factor) when he emphatically said opinion columns should contain documentation for inflammatory accusations (his example was an International Herald-Tribune column calling President Bush a liar).

I believe he’s right, but I wish he had applied this standard to his own “Talking Points Memo” of June 19, when he made the infammatory (and false) claim that President Bush is “censoring” federal government global warming studies.

See here and here for more of my thoughts on this particular point, and here for some of Bonner Cohen’s.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
