Stay tuned today to learn what Sen. John W. Warner, Virginia Republican, and Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, have up their respective sleeves to combat climate change — that is, if man can even tangle with Mother Nature.
The pair of politicians has called a morning press conference on Capitol Hill to reveal particulars of an agreement they've reached on climate legislation.
The agreement, which will be introduced as a bill after the August congressional recess, incorporates "new thinking" to ideas contained in other climate-change proposals.
Suffice it to say, Democrats were not happy to read that conservative publisher and broadcast mogul Rupert Murdoch's long pursuit of Dow Jones & Co. — and more specifically its prized Wall Street Journal — has finally paid off.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Christopher J. Dodd was among the first to respond, fearing the sale "poses a serious threat to our democracy."
Without naming Mr. Murdoch, the Connecticut senator said the "power of the media is swiftly being limited to a few controlling hands."
Then, he actually stole the "fair and balanced" slogan of the Fox News Channel, also owned by Mr. Murdoch, stating: "I am concerned that it will be very difficult for the Journal to offer fair and balanced reporting under the pressures of a giant media conglomerate."
