Talk:Politics of science
I think this is enormously germane. How could politicians encroaching on the top public health official in the country not be considered part of the politics of science? I am reposting this material- I think it's worth discussing. Corry 18:02, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
Former US Surgeon General Complains of Political Pressure (from Voice of America)
President Bush's former chief public health educator has told members of Congress he was repeatedly pressured to adhere to the administration's political agenda.
Richard Carmona, U.S. Surgeon General from 2002 to 2006, told a congressional committee Tuesday that he was not allowed to speak out on stem-cell research, sex education and other issues. He said anything he tried to say that didn't fit the administration's political agenda was ignored, marginalized, or simply buried.--Mtur 16:31, 11 July 2007 (EDT)
