When Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth won the Oscar for Best Documentary, it didn't take him long to be attacked by the Right Wing $MEAR machine. (And the mainstream media didn't help much but not even checking out the basic facts of the story.) So this morning when Laurie David and Sheryl Crow kicked off their Stop Global Warming tour, where they are doing outrageous things like discussing the reality of global warming and how concerned college students, aka our nation's future, can become involved, surely you didn't expect the oil companies to let them slide did you. Of course not. Here are the first couple of shots. One accuses ABC NEWS of letting their on-air talent be used for a "political agenda." For anyone who wants us to connect the dots, here they are. 1. Newsbusters is a project of The Media Research Center. 2. Media Research Center is, believe it or not, a charitable organization so if you give money to them, you get a tax deduction.
Founded in 1987, the MRC is a 501 (c)(3) non profit research and education foundation.

3. Media Research recently gave Rush Limbaugh an award for "Media Excellence." We can't make this sh*t up if we tried. 4. And who gives them a nice $50,000 check every year? And gets the tax deduction? ExxonMobil. Let's be clear. Global Warming is not a political issue, it is a scientific fact. The attempt to turn it into a partisan issue is a political issue and is being done by the Right Wing donors, such as ExxonMobil, who have the most to lose if we move to alternative energies. If you can turn it into a political issue, you can begin to hide the facts. Know the facts, and you know the truth. So get on the bus with Laurie and Sheryl.
