Anti-fracking groups aided by media hungry for sensational headlines

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Fracking has been banned around the world, in part based on media sensationalism rather than facts. 

A 2012 report discovered by Energy in Depth reveals how anti-fracking groups disguise themselves as legitimate, unbiased researchers who then use the media and celebrities to focus negative attention on fracking.

Watch as I share a few examples of how these groups present themselves versus who’s really behind them, and why it’s so important to look beyond the sensationalized media headlines.

The media is in the business of selling headlines which is why there’s not a whole lot of evidence behind their sensationalism when it comes to fracking.

Until there is, we have no reason to believe it’s as dangerous as environmental crazies would like us to believe.

Meanwhile, the lower emissions that come from using natural gas rather than coal actually results in increased health benefits.

But leave it to anti-frackers to ignore facts and press on with their anti-oil narrative, no matter what.

After all, just like the media, they’ve got a business to run.

Great report Holly!
Facts just annoy leftist ideologues! They prefer to stick to the crafted narrative to the bitter end. When debunked, these folks will dig in further.

Why would the far left wing media ever need facts ???
