There Huckabee goes again

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 10:22 PM

Mike Huckabee, newly minted TV commentator, needs to remember: The TV camera never blinks. And somebody out there might hold you to account for your bodacious B.S. (The gig of him here on pollution post-Katrina doesn't even get into on-shore devastation from oil leaks.)

Summary: On Fox & Friends, Mike Huckabee falsely asserted, "When Katrina, a Cat-5 hurricane, hit the Gulf Coast, not one drop of oil was spilled off of those rigs out in the Gulf of Mexico." In fact, according to a report prepared for the federal government by an international consulting firm, damages related to Hurricane Katrina resulted in 70 spills from outer continental shelf structures with a total volume of approximately 11,104 barrels of oil and petroleum products.
