All US administrations ignore hard science if it hurts corporate interests: Analyst
[PRESSTV] US President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
's views on science are ridiculous, but all administrations ignore hard science if it hurts the corporate bottom line, according to Myles Hoenig, an American political analyst and activist.
Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday after an American think-tank warned the treatment of science by the Trump administration has hit a "crisis point," where research findings are manipulated for political gain.
Special interests are given improper influence over federal scientific agencies and scientists are targeted for ideological reasons, according to a report released on Thursday by the National Task Force on Rule of Law and Democracy.
Every US president over the past two decades has, to some degree, undermined research and injected politics into science, according to the task force, formed under the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law.
William Brennan had a liberal agenda that he used the "interpreted law" to pursue. *spit*
by candlelight every wench is handsome...
the mistreatment of science under recent administrations has reached a dangerous level under Trump. The study calls for stringent new standards to enshrine scientific independence.
