James Watt, secretary of the interior in the Reagan administration, was tipped off by a blogger (Powerline?) as to Bill Moyers' libelous rewriting of Watt's tenure at interior. You may recall KAR and other blogs jumping Moyers two weeks ago for Star Tribune OP EX piece that was at the very least ridiculous, and at worst, propoganda that could be construed as vehemently ant-Christian. The article took excerpts of Moyers remarks upon receiving an award for environmental stewardship.
Watt has responded with a 'counterpoint' article in yesterday's strib, basically refuting everything that Moyers had attributed to Watt as having said regarding the environment, like "after the last tree is felled, Christ will come back."
No doubt Watt would have gotten wind of the falshoods without the bloggers, but it just demonstrates again how badly people like Moyers have misjudged the arena of ideas, and the long-term memory capacity of the American people. The left can no longer get away with just making an accusation, and having that accusation stick solely due to the seriousness of the charge. There are too many people watching and paying attention.
UPDATE: Unrelated to this post, but Powerline is saying that NRO has reported Eason Jordan has resigned from CNN. More KAR commentary on this later.
