Just a cherry pickin' moment: Inhofe busted

13 May 2005
Back on 17 April, Hot Politics! noted the masquerades of Senator James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma (Inhofe and Truth).

Hot Politics! failed to note on 19 April a complete demolition of Senator Inhofe by Chris Mooney.

Mooney's article is a must read. Inhofe's claim to coherence and honesty with regard to this issue is utterly destroyed. This will probably do no harm to him as a politician in a culture where the ecstasy of unreason is securely embedded.

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
