When you need absolutely half the story, all the time.

Canada's Lowest Common Denominatrix™ goes all full-metal Steve Janke to reveal ... well, let's just go read the pants-wetting excitement:

George Soros is known for funding groups such as that seek to manipulate public opinion. So why is the billionaire's backing of what he believes in problematic? In a word: transparency.

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"?

That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship "philanthropy," by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's "politicization of science" program.

Join us tomorrow when Kate reveals, for the sake of fairness and balance, that the anti-Kyoto, climate change denial group "Friends of Science" gets loads of money from the petroleum industry.

That will, of course, happen immediately after my hot tub date with Jessica Alba.

Butbutbut, if they paid to get their facts out into the world, that makes them opinions, right? Right?
