Putting the 'Bias' into Bias Media

Still, at least it is more visible now the media has to hawk for cash more. Here's a polluting industry sponsoring a political news website...
The Washington Post this week launched a new politics homepage,, with a helping hand from the dirty coal industry.

According to the press release announcing the launch,
“The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is the Washington Post's exclusive launch sponsor of”

While itself is an exciting new tool for fans of political news, it is unfortunate that the Post had to partner with coal polluters to fund the launch.

Wonder how good their coverage of climate change politics will be? I'd guess shit - but then it is anyway. This way it's shit with dirty clean coal banner ads.
