STUDY: The Press And The Pipeline
(via STUDY: The Press And The Pipeline | Media Matters for America)
"A Media Matters analysis shows that as a whole, news coverage of the Keystone XL pipeline between August 1 and December 31 favored pipeline proponents. Although the project would create few long-term employment opportunities, the pipeline was primarily portrayed as a jobs issue. Pro-pipeline voices were quoted more frequently than those opposed, and dubious industry estimates of job creation were uncritically repeated 5 times more often than they were questioned. Meanwhile, concerns about the State Department’s review process and potential environmental consequences were often overlooked, particularly by television outlets.”

    We have the power to assemble a powerful groundswell and stop the pipeline but first we have to cut through the bullshit
