    Obama's EPA has been caught red handed discriminating against conservative organizations... I wonder if ABC, NBC or CBS will bother covering this story... I kind of doubt it.


    Judge rules EPA lied about transparency, tells agency to halt discrimination against conservatives

    The Washington Times


    A federal judge warned the EPA on Monday not to discriminate against conservative groups in how it responds to open-records requests, issuing a legal spanking to the agency that he said may have lied to the court and showed “apathy and carelessness” in carrying out the law.

    Judge Royce C. Lamberth said he couldn’t prove that officials intentionally destroyed documents, but he described as “absurdity” the way the Environmental Protection Agency handled a Freedom of Information Act request from the Landmark Legal Foundation and then the court case stemming from it — including late last week admitting that it misled the court about how it went about searching for documents.

    In a scorching 25-page opinion, the judge accused the agency of insulting him by first claiming it had conducted a full search for records, then years later retracted that claim in a footnote to another document without giving any explanation for how it erred.

    “The recurrent instances of disregard that EPA employees display for FOIA obligations should not be tolerated by the agency,” the judge said. “This court would implore the executive branch to take greater responsibility in ensuring that all EPA FOIA requests — regardless of the political affiliation of the requester — are treated with equal respect and conscientiousness.”

    If this had happened under Bush, can you imagine the outrage? This would be one of those "every day for a week" stories in the NY Times and the media would have been relentless...

    Funny how this story has been largely ignored.
