Fox Guest Says President Bush Has A Pretty Good Record On The Environment

Reported by Donna - February 9, 2006

In a short segment today on Studio B with Shepard Smith he spoke with Morgan Felchner, Editor of Campaigns and Elections Magazine about a group of Evangelical Christians who are starting a national campaign to fight global warming.

Smith tried to get his guest to say exactly what this group hoped to acheive with going against President's Bush's stance on the environment.

The only reason that Felchner would say was that the Evangelicals were trying to use some of their political power to get some small concessions from President Bush. Smith appeared incredulous, 'On what, the environment?"

That's when Felchner said the magic words, "President Bush has a pretty good record on the environment (a pause, then she added), especially with these groups."

Comment: I haven't heard anyone except a Republican partisan say that President Bush had a pretty good record on the environment. Even Smith wasn't convinced. Take a look at President Bush's environmental record from the Natural Resources Defense Council.

From their main page: This administration, in catering to industries that put America's health and natural heritage at risk, threatens to do more damage to our environmental protections than any other in U.S. history. Here is NRDC's account of what the Bush administration has done and is doing on environmental matters. A very detailed and informative website if you take the time to read it.

Felchner ruined what could have been a plausible, good story with her partisan remark.
