How Corporate Media Whitewashed the EPA’s Fracking Study
feedproxy.google.com
By Claire BernishThe EPA released findings of its study on the impact of fracking on drinking water resources, but derelict reporting by corporate media has utterly failed the public.

By Heather CallaghanIn the midst of the troublesome California drought, innovation spouts up, invention being the mother of necessity. But just like the aftermath of the BP oil spill, how often are people allowed to actually embark on saving the day, versus the insulting "solutions" foisted on the world by the very corporations responsible for part of the problem?It should not then be surprising that companies like Chevron are extending their magnanimous offer of "crop water" in the form of frac [...]
