Post highlighting the SkS feature on Maddow.  I think I'm going to do a post addressing Inhofe's gish gallop during the Maddow interview (the second and third videos) in another blog post, so I may move those videos to that post.

    The discussion of Maddow's performance on the comment thread to Romm's post. Inhofe’s Stunning Admission To Maddow on Global Warming: ‘I Thought It Must Be True Until I Found Out What It Cost” is very interesting.

    In my opinion, Maddow does need to become more fluent in climate science. She seemed rather caavalier in her interchange with Inhofe in the second video. The first video was excellent -- entirely scripted of course.  I have yet to watch the thrid.

    You're better off just focusing on Rachel Maddow with this post. Having Inhofe's garbage centre-stage like that is contrary to the debunking handbook guidelines.

    Yeah, I was just going to feature the first video until I saw the second and third.  Thought I should throw those in there until I watched them and realized how many myths Inhofe dumped in there.  So for now I'll just use this as a holding place for the second and third videos, but will move them to their own Inhofe-debunking post when I draft one up this weekend.

    I do agree Maddow let Inhofe get away with way too much in that interview - she could hardly even get a word in.  Though she did refute a couple of his myths.

    One of the problems with Maddow's first video is that it could easily be editied to portray her advocating  the denier myths about climategate.

    What Rob Painting said, respects to Maddow for stomaching Inhof for so long.
