The Big Picture RT

Published on Feb 27, 2014

The mainstream media is failing us when it comes to covering the story of the century – made climate change. And, as Media Matters has recently reported, there’s no better example of this failure than the decline of climate coverage at Reuters since that news organization hired Paul Ingrassia as as an editor. Ingrassia is a self-described “climate skeptic,” and questions whether or not global warming is man-made. Denying climate is absolutely insane.

Published on Feb 27, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Residents who live near areas of oil and natural gas fracking have long complained that the industry has poisoned their water with toxic chemicals. Now a new investigation is shedding light on another concern: air quality. The new report, “Fracking the Eagle Ford Shale: Big Oil and Bad Air on the Texas Prairie,” is the result of an eight-month investigation by InsideClimate News, the Center for Public Integrity and The Weather Channel. We speak to David Hasemyer and Lisa Song, two of the reporters who worked on the investigation.
