I just came across so zillionth article about the mess that GW Bush’s adminstration seems to cause:
It turns out that a junior spokesman at NASA’s Washington headquarters was implicated in altering scientific releases from NASA to better communicate his christian-conservative viewpoints.
The New York Times reported that the 24-year-old George Deutsch amongst other things softened articles about global warming and "lobbied NASA colleagues to refer to the Big Bang as a "theory"in their communications with the public because NASA could not discountthe role of "intelligent design" in the formation of vast star systemsand planets".
Where could this unethical behaviour have been learned?
Well, for one, his rÃ©sumÃ© falsely claimed an undergraduate degree in journalism from Texas A&M University, even though he never graduated.
So he didn’t finish it completely. Fine. But lying that you have a degree, that’s just wrong.
I guess his lying is what got him places: he had joined NASA after working on President Bush’s re-election campaign.
Is there no end to Brownie, DeLay, and who knows what else?
Thankfully, he was fired more quickly than most.
