The Daily Caller‘s Caroline May has the story today about Climate activist Mark Hertsgaard telling Sen. James Inofe (R-Okla.) that he’s with Politico. Well, that’s partly true, and with can be so ambiguous. Hertsgaard has written an op-ed for them but that’s about all.
Dan Berman, energy editor at Politico, told The Daily Caller that while Hertsgaard has written one opinion article for them, he was not and is not affiliated with Politico. “Mr. Hertsgaard is not a POLITICO reporter or employee and we have asked him not to portray himself as one,” Berman wrote in an email to TheDC.
