Liars on the Right
For what seems like many years (actually over four), science blogger Richard Hope has been tracking the lawsuits, and commentaries surrounding Ohioan creationist John Freshwater's dismissal as an 8th grade science teacher. On 20, June 2008, the Mt. Vernon School Board started termination proceedings against Freshwater. The saga continues. RBH made a very insightful post this AM on The Panda's Thumb blog about the way the right-wing Christian press has consistently lied about Freshwater, and why he was fired. I highly recommend reading his comments.
