Hot off the Press: Inhofe's Mini-Me Morano burned by climate change reality

Here it is DeSmoggers, hot off the press: a live audio recording of the Friday night fight at the Society of Environmental Journalists Conference. On one hand: Senator Jim Inhofe's communications director, Marc Morano, and on the other, ABC News investigative reporter, Bill Blakemore, New York Times environment reporter, Andrew Revkin, and New York University journalism professor, Dan Fagin.

Grab it here. Listen it to it, download it, and send it to your friends and family. In other words, get it out. No spin here, just a nice, round denunciation of Morano, Inhofe and the junk science they find in the sand where their heads are thoroughly buried.

Inhofe Aid vs. SEJ: "It's Not About Science"

Marc Morano, the outspoken aid to Oklahoma Senator and Environment Committee Chair Jim Inhofe took on the assembled mob at the Society of Environmental Journalists conference moments ago, and the only point of agreement was on Morano's opening promise: “I'm not here to debate the science.”

Rather, he was here (on behalf of his boss, who declined the invitation) to slag the media for its coverage of climate change and particularly for abandoning the position of “balance” that Inhofe and company would prefer.

Morano began by denying that his boss had ever dismissed climate change as a hoax, although neither he nor his boss have ever challenged the accuracy of this Inhofe quote, “With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science,” Inhofe said, “could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.”

Morano's most impassioned complaints were aimed at the media's “labelling” and its “failure” to label fairly.
