More Fun From The Flat-Earth Administration

'The Bush administration persistently manipulates scientific data to serve its ideology and protect the interests of its political supporters, a report by the minority staff of the House Committee on Government Reform says.

... On topics ranging from global warming to sex education, the administration 'has manipulated the scientific process and distorted or suppressed scientific findings,' the report said.

... The report's authors allege that federal agencies have jeopardized scientific integrity in numerous ways, including stacking scientific advisory committees with unqualified officials or industry representatives, blocking publication of findings that could harm corporate interests and defending controversial decisions with misleading information.'
