Phone Call From POGO

Just got a call from Beth Daly at the Project for Government Oversight, who explained that their post from last week about the ABC series on "Loose Nukes" was a misunderstanding. As soon as they update their blog with their side of the story, I'll be happy to share it with you.

UPDATE: Here's the updated post from POGO:

Apparently, the Nuclear Energy Institute misunderstood us when we said "POGO consulted on” the ABC News investigative series, “Loose Nukes.” “Consulted” did not mean POGO was hired by ABC or was paid any money. In fact, we wish we could get paid for our expertise as many people do by news media outlets. But, in order to maintain an independent stance and protect our credibility, POGO does not accept money from corporations such as ABC. We also wanted to clarify that we are not an anti-nuclear organization. We have never taken a position on the merits or the drawbacks of nuclear energy.

More later, if warranted.

Revision:

As I thought. I found their link in an anti-nuclear link farm and tried to find anything mentioning nuclear energy on their site; I could not find anything.

Wow, a comment was deleted...does that mean NEI is going the way of ABC?

duh Stewart (having that name almost certainly qualifies that you are dumb) maybe they don't have a position on nuclear energy...which would mean they were not anti-nuclear...

Good morning, bozo.

They aren't anti-nuclear. They're neutral. That's what I said.
