Santorum Says Free Weather News Has Cloudy Future

To better serve the public, Rick Santorum (R - PA) says the National Weather Service must stop offering weather information on the Internet. Last week, he introduced a bill to make it easier for commercial weather news providers (which make millions using federal weather data underwritten by taxpayers) to compete in the free market of Internet weather news, and harder for everyone else to actually get free weather news. One member of the public who really loves this bill is Joel Myers, president of commercial weather news provider, AccuWeather. Another is Barry Myers, AccuWeather's executive vice president. They also love Santorum in general, apparently, having donated thousands of dollars to his political campaigns over the years.
