Fox News columnist Steven Milloy, Pundit for Hire

I just love the phrase "junk science." Using that phrase makes me feel good, because there are so many people whose pseudo-scientific claims belong in the trash. The only problem is, the phrase has been so co-opted by so many people that it has ceased to have much meaning. Now if you google "junk science" you get this guy.

Fortunately, The New Republic has exposed Steven Milloy for what he is, a shill for businesses that pay him to write badly researched pieces that dispute how much the businesses are polluting the air. Will he stay on the Fox News payroll?
