    RFK Jr. Calls Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck Lying ‘Flat Earthers’ Posted by Noel Sheppard on July 9, 2007 - 16:47. For those whose gastrointestinal tracts couldn’t allow them to stomach the goings on during Saturday’s Live Earth concerts, conceivably one of the best moments was Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s rant at Giants Stadium. Not only did Kennedy attack the politicians and the media as “corporate toadies” for the oil industry, but he also slammed conservative radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck as being lying “Flat Earthers.” I kid you not. For those that can...

    "I’m not sure what derangement syndrome Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is suffering from, but on Friday’s “Hardball,” he actually blamed the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center on President Reagan’s rollback of CAFE standards in 1986."

    STAMFORD, Conn. - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. took center stage Tuesday as his convicted cousin sought a new trial for a 1975 murder, describing how he did his own sleuthing when he learned of an account implicating two other men. Michael Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy, is serving 20 years to life in prison after he was convicted of fatally beating neighbor Martha Moxley with a golf club when they were both 15. His hair is gray and he appeared thinner Tuesday than at his 2002 trial. Kennedy testified that although he and Skakel have not always been close,...

    Skakel Witnesses: RFK Jr., Trial Lawyer By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN Associated Press Writer NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Michael Skakel plans to call his cousin, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and a celebrity attorney as witnesses as he appeals his murder conviction next week, according to a list filed Tuesday.Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy, is seeking a new trial based on a claim by Gitano "Tony" Bryant, who implicated his friends in the killing of 15-year-old Martha Moxley. Skakel, 47, was convicted in 2002 of bludgeoning Moxley to death with a golf club in 1975 in Greenwich and is serving 20...

    If Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most influential leaders on the environment today, much credit goes to Terry Tamminen, the brains behind the California governor's brawn on all things green. Tamminen, a Democrat and long-time conservationist, teamed up with the Republican actor and bodybuilder three years ago for his election and later became his top environmental aide. Their efforts culminated last month in a bipartisan landmark global warming law that makes California the first US state to mandate a cut in greenhouse gas emissions, equal to 25 percent by 2020. Now the governor, who has accused fellow Republican US...

    Mr. (Robert F.) Kennedy(Jr,), one of the country's most prominent environmental lawyers and advocates, spent Christmas skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho, at the home of Ms. David and her husband, Larry David, the "Seinfeld" creator and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" protagonist. Mr. David urged him to read a book on the 2004 election by the news media critic Mark Crispin Miller. Mr. Kennedy did, and a few days later he was skiing with the Rolling Stone publisher, Jann S. Wenner, an old friend and Sun Valley homeowner. Mr. Kennedy suggested that Mr. Wenner commission a story on the "stolen election." Mr....

    If the current trend continues, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is going to end up being involved in the journalistic equivalent of the Bay of Pigs. His article in the latest issue of Rolling Stone Republicans stole the 2004 election in Ohio is coming under a massive assault - and from the unlikeliest of places. Monday in Salon, Farhad Manjoo reduced RFK, Jr.'s seemingly authoritative argument to rubble. Democratic pollster Mark Blumenthal followed suit later the same day by taking down Kennedy's claim that exit polling is an "exact science" and highlighting how he either misinterpreted or willfully distorted numerous aspects...

    ...If only someone with Kennedy's stature would outline this need. If only. Whatever his aim, RFK Jr. does not appear intent on fixing the problem. He's more content to take us through a hit parade of the most popular, and the most dismissible, theories purporting to show that John Kerry won Ohio, theories that have been swirling about the blogosphere ever since the race was called. I scoured his Rolling Stone article for some novel story or statistic or theory that would prove, finally, that George W. Bush was not the true victor. But nothing here is new. If you've...

But the evidence he cites isn't new and his argument is filled with distortions and blatant omissions.June 3, 2006 | "After carefully examining the evidence, I've become convinced that the president's party mounted a massive, coordinated campaign to subvert the will of the people in 2004," Robert F.

    Like many Americans, I spent the evening of the 2004 election watching the returns on television and wondering how the exit polls, which predicted an overwhelming victory for John Kerry, had gotten it so wrong. By midnight, the official tallies showed a decisive lead for George Bush -- and the next day, lacking enough legal evidence to contest the results, Kerry conceded. Republicans derided anyone who expressed doubts about Bush's victory as nut cases in ''tinfoil hats,'' while the national media, with few exceptions, did little to question the validity of the election. The Washington Post immediately dismissed allegations of...

    Fans of U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy have long argued that he has fought the good fight ... But today, he is defending the indefensible: special interest legislation, tucked into a Coast Guard authorization bill, that would give Gov. Mitt Romney the power to veto the proposed Cape Wind energy project, even though it would be in federal waters. The project... more than five miles offshore of Cape Cod. The equivalent of burning 113 million barrels of oil per year. Proponents of Cape Wind say it is an important source of alternative, renewable energy, and it has the backing of such...

    Opponents of a plan to build the first offshore U.S. wind farm in Nantucket Sound off Massachusetts were a step closer on Friday to blocking the $900 million project. Negotiators in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate agreed late on Thursday to give Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney the power to block a plan by Cape Wind Associates LLC to put 130 giant wind turbines near the resort islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Backers say the project could generate enough electricity for most of Cape Cod and nearby islands. Opponents include wealthy residents with yachts and shorefront property near...

    BOSTON A leading opponent of the controversial Cape Wind development proposed for Nantucket Sound has come out against a pending move to kill the project in Congress. And there’s a twist. The call for withdrawal of the so-called Young amendment, which would ban wind turbines within 1.5 nautical miles of ferry and shipping lanes, comes from the nephew of one of Cape Wind’s key political adversaries, Sen. Ted Kennedy. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer and staunch public critic of the 130-turbine Cape Wind project, has written a letter to members of a congressional conference committee denouncing the move...

    STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Giant windmills are popping up on farms, scenic mountain ridges, prairie grass and now an Indian reservation, dramatically changing the nation's landscape and spinning a debate about where they belong. Wind power grew rapidly in 2005, becoming more competitive as natural gas prices jumped and crude oil prices reached record highs. Improved technology, a federal tax credit and pressure on utilities to use clean energy sources helped fuel the growth from coast to coast. Officials in Atlantic City, N.J., in December dedicated the nation's first coastal wind farm. And last week, General Electric Co. announced a...

    The revelation that Fox News aired a one-sided global warming program featuring Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has alienated the channel's conservative base. In response to our column on the controversy, we received a number of emails, some of them threatening to leave the channel in disgust. We speculated in our column on the matter that Fox was trying to curry favor with Kennedy, who may be running for high office in New York, home of Fox News parent News Corporation. If Kennedy, for instance, becomes New York state Attorney General, he could be in a position to help or hurt...

    Uber environmentalist Robert F.
