New Bush-Bashing Website Debuts

July 7, 2008 - 7:30 PM

(CNSNews.com) - MoveOn.org, a nonprofit, liberal advocacy group, is lending its support to a new Bush-bashing website that claims to track the Bush administration's "environmental misdeeds."

BushGreenwatch.org, a news-and-information website, debuted on Monday, offering what it called an "expose" on the Bush administration's "conflicting" messages on the dangers of mercury.

BushGreenwatch says it is "devoted to providing accurate and timely information on the Bush Administration's assault on the environment and public health."

Every weekday morning, the website plans to feature a news item "that goes beyond the headlines to uncover policies and actions that may have been overlooked."

"This week," a press release noted, "BushGreenwatch will include stories about a secret 'sweetheart' deal between the EPA and the agribusiness industry on factory farm pollution, as well as one about a Bush judicial nominee...who once argued that environmentalists actually benefit from the U.S. military's bombing of migratory birds on the grounds that the more rare -- and dead -- the species, the more birdwatchers would enjoy spotting them."

BushGreenwatch says it is a project of Environmental Media Services, "a nonprofit communications clearinghouse dedicated to expanding media coverage of critical environmental and public health issues, with support from MoveOn.org..."

BushGreenwatch describes MoveOn.org as "an online organizing group with nearly two million members across the United States." MoveOn.org is the group behind the TV ads that portray President Bush as a "misleader."
