NBC affiliate KSN News in Wichita, Kansas recently called Food & Water Watch and Friends of the Earth “extremist” organizations in a news segment on our recent legal challenge to the EPA on pollution trading. We expect this characterization of public interest organizations by some members of the blogosphere, but not from a reputable mainstream news outlet. News programs shouldn’t allow their journalists to contribute unsubstantiated claims and ideological language to objective, fact-based news reports. We're tired of being described as extreme for trying to prevent corporate abuse of public resources, and we think it’s important to hold our news organizations to a higher standard of journalistic ethics.
Join us in thanking KSN News for airing a retraction on their story calling Food & Water Watch extremists.
