We appreciate News Hounds, the folks who "watch Fox so you don't have to." The website noted that "Fox News left out some crucial information in a report about the Washington premiere of Al Gore's film on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth -- like the fact that think tanks critical of it were funded by oil companies and automakers, as well as the usual coterie of far-right bagmen. ... Reporter Mike Emanuel ... did not take the time to tell the viewer anything about either the Competitive Enterprise Institute or the National Center for Policy Analysis. If he really were reporting so that the viewer could decide, Emanuel might have noted these facts available from Sourcewatch," wrote News Hounds, going on to quote from the SourceWatch articles on each front group.
