How did this get in the paper?

The hoi polloi aren't supposed to know that their pockets are getting picked for no actual benefit...
Motorists in southeastern Wisconsin pay an average of 14 cents more a gallon for gasoline billed as cleaner for the environment, but the government and air quality experts now question how much the gas actually cuts pollution.

The article is written to obfuscate the 'science'--you have to get all the way to the end to learn that the models they're using to justify special formulations have been proven incorrect--and they've got the requisite evil capitalist who "doesn't care about clean lungs" scare verbiage *snort*, but there's a seed of doubt planted about Totalitarian Green Government Saving The Planet.

Isn't there an editorial oversight board to keep this from happening?
