<li> '''Banned from CNBC by order of the GE CEO.''' As a featured panelist at the first Wall Street Journal ECO:nomics conference, which also featured General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt, Milloy was scheduled for a March 13, 2008 televised debate with fellow conference panelist and CERES head Mindy Lubber. The debate was to be moderated by CNBC host Melissa Francis. Though Milloy's Free Enterprise Action Fund had vigorously campaigned for almost three years against GE's support for global warming legislation, including at shareholder meetings where Immelt was publicly questioned,  Milloy chatted amiably with Immelt for about 45 minutes at a pre-conference cocktail party, during which time Milloy mentioned to Immelt that he was scheduled to appear on GE-owned CNBC during the conference. Before Milloy's CNBC appearance, however, Immelt was grilled by free market supporters during the conference's opening event. Immelt received such a hard time that Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott, who witnessed the public drubbing, confessed to a Wall Street Journal host that what happened to Immelt had kept him up all night. When Milloy showed up for his debate with Lubber, he was told that he had been replaced by a Wall Street Journal staffer. Though he had appeared on CNBC many times before Immelt's ban, Milloy has not appeared on CNBC since.
<li> '''Spurred Congressional probing of Al Gore's financial conflicts of interest, resulting in false Congressional testimony by Gore.''' Milloy's April 24, 2009 ''Human Events'' column, "[http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=3158410 Questions for Al Gore]," inspired Reps. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Steve Scalise (R-La.) to interrogate Al Gore during his same-day testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in favor of the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill.  [http://greenhellblog.com/2009/04/24/gore-lies-to-congress-about-personal-finances/ Gore lied to Blackburn] about donating all his climate-related profits to non-profit advocacy groups. [http://greenhellblog.com/2009/04/27/al-gore-lies-to-congress-part-2-goldman-who/ Gore lied Scalise] about not having any business relationship with Goldman Sachs. Gore was not, however, under oath. Clips of these exchanges have been repeatedly used in various media.
