Stenography from Newsweek's Daniel Stone

Newsweek's Daniel Stone reports Bear Necessities: Washington has to decide whether to protect polar bears under the Endangered Species Act. Inside the politics of the debate. And to take us inside he uses "Dr. Kenneth Green, a biologist and environmental scientist who is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research" with seemingly no qualms and with no disclosure of his/their agenda. They were offering cold hard cash for "scientists" to support their clearly sought outcome yet apparently Newsweek will give them ink with no payola required. This fella, pictured over to the left, is cited favorably by the Heartland Institute, in the news just today for sending thousands of unsolicited DVDs and the like to Canadian schoolchildren, plus he's been on the payroll of the Reason Foundation and the Fraser Institute. To have Newsweek consult Dr. Green seems remarkable. John Gunn
