Hogan: Hey Col Klink this is German Instrument Panel it’s an unfair test, naturally the German pilots are going to look better
Col Klink: Naturally.
Col Hogan: You mean?

The first rule of journalism is “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” Brad Plumer of the Washington Post overlooked that rule in reporting that an alleged global warming skeptic is now a convert — because the “skeptic” in question — physicist Richard Muller of Berkeley — embraced the theory of man-made global warming 30 years ago. An online search easily disproved his claim of skepticism. He co-authored a book, “Physics For Future Presidents,” that explained climate change among other things.
Don Don Don that may be the first rule of Journalism where YOU where taught but at the Wilhelm Klink school of journalism where Mr. Plumer studies we have a different mission statement:
My dear Mr. Surber the aim of a Newspaper article is not to discover new facts. We already KNOW that Global Warming exists. Here we are merely furnishing argumentative proof.
Via Glenn who snarks about real newspapermen.
This has been a bad week for the Washington Post, first their Rubio hit is counted by the Miami Herald and now their converted Climate Skeptic is revealed as anything but. Expect a lot more of this as the liberal left/media get closer to election 2012 and more desperate.
