This Week, On 60 Minutes

This week on 60 Minutes: "Rewriting The Science." Actually, the New York Times already covered this story a month ago- And the lonely libertarian blogged about it "here.

For those who think the mainstream media really does provide different viewpoints, try distinguishing the 60 Minutes coverage from the previous Times coverage. Once again, this is the story of the supposedly evil Bush administration attempting to hide the truth about global warming. Of course, the truth is, this isn't really about science at all, but about politics on both sides. Global warming has become an inherently political issue, as the "solutions" to the problem have become intermingled with the issue of global warming itself. Whatever your thoughts on global warming, if you think those thoughts aren't influenced by political ideology, you're deluding yourself.
