Annoying Greenie on Defense
World Net Daily ^ | 1/12/2014 | Marita Noon

After decades of controlling America’s energy narrative, on January 5, CBS’s 60 Minutes fired a shot that has put the green lobby on the defensive. The next day, two very different media outlets lobbed blows that could represent a new trend; a change of tone in Washington.

The 60 Minutes piece, featuring correspondent Lesley Stahl, aired, perhaps intentionally, at a time when it may have had the lowest possible viewership, as it aired opposite the NFL playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers. You may have missed it. But environmental/renewable-energy believers took the hit—and they are pushing back.

So, are the ecowackos gonna cry foul and call us "racist" for saying "offensive" things about them and their ideas? They gonna sue somebody? They gonna call eric holder and whine they're being discriminated against? It all comes down to them possibly losing money(right?) as the bottom line. Ya don't mess with peoples money. Oh, and thanks Marita for reminding us that the Packers lost last week at the very end of the article. :>( . Go 49ers now.

20 years from now “An inconvenient Truth” will be shown on a double bill with “Reefer Madness” where pot smoking students will howl with laughter.

No perhaps about it. They did the same thing with the Juanita Broderick interview.
