Morano himself sent out a press release about it; perhaps in true hack fashion he thinks any publicity is good publicity.

(If you don’t recall the background, the committee, chaired by Sen. Inhofe, has started sending out press releases filled with lies and ad hominem attacks about global warming, directed at newspaper articles and now TV specials. With your tax dollars.)
