Cons Lie About Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb

Steven Milloy, who is infamous for just making stuff up and calling it science, works in concert with Fox News and World Net Daily to push a story about the supposed toxicity of compact fluorescent light bulbs. As usual, full of crap.

As I think about the TNR blogging essay, this is why a lot of us do this. In the past the media just let itself get railroaded by con b.s., and on occasion you would get a book from Eric Alterman, Joe Conason, Al Franken or an article in Salon, but otherwise you had no day to day look at the right and the lies they regularly produce in their "think tanks".
