The curious blackout of the cable net's one-hour 'Politics of Power' special...
By D.R. Tucker on 8/29/2013 10:05am PT  

If you missed the MSNBC/Chris Hayes documentary The Politics of Power on August 16, you may never have the chance to see it again in its entirety.

Sure, you can watch the final fifty-nine seconds of the documentary on MSNBC.com, and a four-minute clip from the program, plus a few "web extras". But, for some reason, the rest of the special --- a rare hour-long cable news documentary on the climate crisis and its fossil fuel industry-funded deniers --- has yet to be posted online. Anywhere. At least anywhere that we were able to find.

The BRAD BLOG has made repeated inquires to MSNBC, as well as to Chris Hayes and whoever monitors All In's Twitter feed, as to why the documentary, which aired during Hayes' normal All in With Chris Hayes time slot, has not been made available in full online. That, despite the fact that Rachel Maddow's documentary, Hubris: Selling the Iraq War, was posted on MSNBC.com almost immediately after it first aired on February 18, 2013. As of this writing, we have yet to receive a response from MSNBC or Hayes or All In as to whether or when the doc might be made available online, or why it hasn't been so far.

Now, why would that be?...

Op-ed by four former Republican EPA chiefs still won't be enough to break through modern GOP's climate of denial...
By D.R. Tucker on 8/4/2013 7:35pm PT  

There is no such thing as a Republican politician who reads the New York Times.

That's the obvious takeaway from the events of August 2, as the GOP-controlled House cast a symbolic vote against the concept of a carbon tax just hours after the Times published an op-ed written by Republican-appointed former EPA administrators William Ruckelshaus, Lee Thomas, William Reilly and Christine Todd Whitman calling for such a tax, and otherwise for the GOP to join President Obama in taking aggressive action to reduce carbon emissions before it's too late.

One wonders why Ruckelshaus (the very first head of the EPA, as appointed by leftist EPA creator President Richard Nixon), Thomas, Reilly and Whitman even bothered to write this op-ed. After all, they are calling upon Republicans to embrace policy.

Has it not been finally proven that the Republican Party --- the party I belonged to for fifteen years --- no longer cares about policy? And, to ask the even more obviously rhetorical question: do they not realize that in 2013, "Republican environmentalist" is as much of a logical falsehood as "clean coal"?...
