Re: Tillerson on energy/NG
I have found more and more inexcusable rot being thrown around by the media of late. The appeals court case on the EPA was an example. The court found that, as a point of law, the EPA had the legal authority to do what it did in accord with the enabling legislation, and that it was not being totally capricious in its decision. You would hardly know that from the stories running all over. The stories proclaimed that the court agreed with the science when they specifically stated in their decision that it was not in their charter to decide the science one way or the other. The nuances of a lot of stuff are being lost on these journalism majors. Unfortunately, most folks cannot figure stuff out for themselves and just take the talking head or the AP or WSJ story as the truth despite glaring errors of this sort. Now that everything is turning into a grand game of Calvinball, they do the American people a disservice. I suppose it has always been like that, but it still bugs me. Hearst and the yellow press come to mind immediately.
