Wrong: Christian Science Monitor headline on Heartland leak

“Documents reveal Koch-funded group’s plot to undermine climate science.”

Not only do the leaked documents from Heartland not indicate any “plot to undermine climate science” — something that has already been undermined by Michael Mann and his hokey stick — but of Heartland’s $4.6 million 2011 budget, only $25,000 (0.5%) came from the Charles G.

    Once upon a time there was a comparatively reliable source of unbiased news called the Christian Science Monitor…
