This Is Criminal

I’m sure DOJ will get right on it.

Someone affiliated with the Department of Energy has been going back to make changes to press releases posted on the Internet weeks and months ago, CNBC has found.

The changes occurred in two press releases from the Department of Energy’s loan guarantee program — the same program that has been the center of controversy surrounding the failed solar company Solyndra.

Both were changed to remove the name of a company that has received negative press attention in recent days, SunPower, and replace it with the name of another company, NRG Energy.

…Update: On Wednesday evening, a Department of Energy spokesman said that the press releases had been returned to their original content as a result of CNBC’s inquiry about the changes.

This needs to be investigated and whomever was doing this needs to be fired at the very least.

    I remember in sixth grade, getting caught steeling a twinkie from the cafeteria. I got the strap at school and then much worse from my father when I got home.

    At the very least, I want someone to get the strap for this, followed by fifteen minutes in a locked room with my father.

    I suspect some guy named Winston Smith, over in the Ministry of Truth, is responsible.

    They think we’re that stupid or they never got out of middle school, mentally speaking.
