HCN isn't responsible for polarization

  I am writing in support of HCN’s coverage of the Bush administration’s attack on the environment. I suppose, at one point, wanting a healthy habitat for human beings was a nonpartisan issue. Unfortunately, it seems these days if you care about anything that could be vaguely termed "social equity" or "conservation," you’re automatically a pinko-commie liberal.

I think it is important for news outlets to illustrate cause-and-effect relationships between legislation and resulting environmental effects. I hope you continue to do so, while many other news outlets continue to gloss over the ruinous effects of basically every piece of legislation passed under our current leadership. You folks aren’t the ones doing the polarizing (it’s that dude in the White House).
