Read this

Here is an extremely good article which everyone should read, documenting the tactics of Myron Ebell's friends to knit a silk purse out of a pig's ear in the echo chamber of the media.

Myron is, as usual, too modest in his statements of culpability: "Many corporations have funded, you know, dribs and drabs here and there, but I would be surprised to learn that there was a bigger one than Exxon,"

Ebell denies the sum indicates any sort of quid pro quo. He’s proud of ExxonMobil’s funding and wishes "we could attract more from other companies."

So proud of it, in fact, that he denied his de facto spokesman-like relation with Exxon, and mislead the public of his non-independence when he gave interviews, until real journalists dug out the facts by other means.
