Don't Miss It...FOX News Special (Updated)

How did this press release come about?
The June 27, 2006 Associated Press (AP) article titled
Scientists OK Gore's Movie for Accuracy" by Seth Borenstein raises some serious questions about AP's bias and methodology.
AP chose to ignore the scores of scientists who have harshly criticized the science presented in former Vice President Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth."
- US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Work
Call my cynical, but this reminds me too much of the pro-business "government" Earth Day site (that focuses on Environmentalism as the big evil in it all). Theoretically, I'm all for the s keeping an eye on media truth, but is this really what's happening here?

Update: Okay. This is nauseating. Apparently the EPW is divided into Minority and Majority pages, with separate press releases. This is NOT science speaking from this organization. It's the agenda of the Republican Party. I call your attention to this hilarious headline on the Majority (Republican) Press page:
05/18/2006 - DON’T MISS IT…FOX NEWS SPECIAL, Global Warming: The Debate Continues
Are you fucking kidding? Call me biased, but the Minority Press page seems a bit more responsible.

Update 2: Hey, whaddya know? ThinkProgress has more on this Press Release.
