Politico’s Outrageous Framing of Jackson’s Resignation from EPA

In their December 27 story about Lisa Jackson’s resignation from atop her perch at the Environmental Protection Agency, Darren Samuelsohn and Erica Martinson at the Politico wanted readers to believe that occurred after “after four years of battling Republicans and industry while also giving the White House some heartburn along the way over her push for new clean air rules.”

Please. It’s not as if only Republicans oppose the EPA’s energy-hostile agenda; last time I checked, most of West Virginia’s national politicians, as well as many if not most of the state’s coal miners who are losing their jobs as a result of out-of-control environmentalism, are Democrats. And I don’t recall President Obama or the White House ever having any problems with what Jackson was saying or doing. The Politico pair also waited until the sixth paragraph of their report to mention Jackson’s admitted use of an accountability-avoiding email account in the name of “Richard Windsor” to conduct official business. Excerpts from their report follow the jump:

… Jackson has won praise from greens for her tenure, but she also leaves with the Obama administration having yet to aggressively address climate change.

“I will leave the EPA confident the ship is sailing in the right direction, and ready in my own life for new challenges, time with my family and new opportunities to make a difference,” Jackson said in a statement Thursday.

The agency said she plans to leave after President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address early next year. If a nominee to replace her has not been confirmed by then, the White House plans to have Jackson’s deputy, Robert Perciasepe, serve as the acting administrator.

    I'm glad the bitch is out. And for those at politicos editorial staff who write with a liberal bias second only
    to "Nothing But Crap" network, how does it feel to have one of your own get dragged over the coals and hung from the tree of politics? Humm? Ha Ha Ha. I'm loving every minute of it.

    It matters not who runs the agency, it is nothing more than a front for the CPUSA. They are successfully drowning the Nation in regulation and driving industry out .

  5. jmsmaxwell says:

    Politico editorial staff should rename themselves the Socialist Democrat Spin alots. They are nothing more
    than a branch whose only job is to apparently try to cover thier master and his minions when the fires get
    to hot and someone resignes to run for cover. Just more BS from the Backside of the Jackass party
    in the White House.

    "If a nominee has not been confirmed by then" It can't be that hard to find another sycophant in that bureaucracy. "…yet to aggressively address climate change". She has already aggressively destroyed half of our electrical energy production industry at the behest of O who declared he would do it thru her when addressing the g20 climate meeting. If this was not 'aggressive enough' , I shudder to think what we face in the coming four years. He MUST BE STOPPED before he destroys the entire country. Even if we ignore all well documented science showing that greenhouse is having no measurable effect and assume that CO2 were a significant factor, the EPA's actions would do NOTHING measurable to the effect the climate. The numbers supporting scientific truth have been presented to the deaf ears of congress and the world for years. Pull the plug on 10's of billions of dollars squandered on the climate change 'studies' and the incessant drum beat will evaporate immediately.

  8. Lisa Jackson, as head of the disasterous EPA has over stepped her authority in so many ways she deserves to be called before a grand jury for malfeasance in office among other things. For allowing her to abuse her situation to the extent she did the president should be standing next to her answering to that grand jury. Both should be presecuted.

  9. Another corrupt member of the Obama administration
