George Deutsch Daily Update

Censorship Is Alleged at NOAA, Washington Post

"There is no pressure or mandate, from the Bush administration or elsewhere, to alter or water down scientific data at NASA, period," Deutsch said, adding that after being tasked to work with Hansen, "I quickly learned one thing: Dr. Hansen and his supporters have a very partisan agenda and ties reaching to the top of the Democratic Party."

"In the radio interview, Mr. Deutsch also criticized others within NASA who supported Dr. Hansen's view that he was being suppressed. Leslie McCarthy, a public affairs officer who told The Times of several conversations in which Mr. Deutsch said his job was to "make the president look good," said she would not comment on his assertions."

Editor's note: Oh c'mon George. This is getting silly. The only reason you got your job at NASA - and the only qualifications you had - was YOUR political connections to the top of the Republican party i.e. the White House. Waving your arms about someone else's supposed political connections and/or motivations is rather hypocritical to say the least.
