Biggest Fracking Story in the Region -- Seven Local News Outlets alerted-- ZERO coverage!

I emailed every news outlet in town about this story. We have a bunch:
WBNG, Fox40, Press+Sun, WNBF, WSKG, Newschannel34, YNN
I followed up with phone calls to many.
I spoke at length to 3 reporters.
I gave one station my video footage.

Not one ran the story.

I can get affidavits from 3 residents of Dimock PA
who will affirm that Phelim McAleer (producer of FrackNation)
LIED to gain entrance into their homes.

That means he is likely A CRIMINAL guilty of violations of these PA laws
  • 18 Pa.C.S. § 2709(a) Deceptive or Fraudulent Business Practices:
  • 18 Pa.C.S. § 4107 Breach of Privacy
  • 18 Pa.C.S. §5703 Criminal Trespass
  • 18 Pa.C.S. § 5503 False Impersonation:
  • 18 Pa.C.S. § 4115 Interception, Disclosure or Use of Wire,
    Electronic or Oral Communications

Now he is on a world-wide tour FUNDED BY THE GAS INDUSTRY
saying that "fracking is safe" and that "Dimock's water is fine".

Every news outlet in town repeated the story TOP STORY:
EPA Says Dimock Water is Fine!

How many of you covered the story equally that the EPA
results were a politically motivated HOAX?,0,4847442.story

So because NONE OF YOU in the Corporate Media saw fit to cover
the Biggest Regional Fracking Story of the year,
the Destruction of 1101 Carter Road, Dimock

The OFFICIAL (Bullshit) STORY: "Dimock's Water is Fine" -- remains.

So if the water in Dimock is fine,

A) Why did Cabot spend $167,500 to purchase it?
B) Then, why did Cabot spend $25,000 to demolish it?

When I was watching the news program for the station
which I supplied video, looking for the story--- which DID NOT RUN--

I did see the following segments:

  • Bikers Club fundraiser for Suicide Awareness (fluff)
  • Stanley Law Clinic (advertisement)
  • Moe's Fundraiser for Haiti (100% Public Relations/Advert)
  • Stock Market Report -- (boring)
  • Bloomberg stock update (Pro-Business News)
  • Weather....

Oh yes -- I DID see this commercial (PAID SPEECH) from
"Energy from Shale", a Public Relations (Industrial Propaganda)
outlet of the American Petroleum Institute:

Huh. Do you think that has anything to do with WHY they didn't run the story?

So the Gas Industry can PAY THEIR WAY on to the commercial airwaves,
and into the print newspapers


So I decided to channel my anger about the fact our news isn't really news,
 into a creative video...

Video will be online at ~3pm on the Shaleshock Youtube Channel

As Pennsylvania continues to be destroyed and made toxic,
the homeland of my family:

YOU ALL in the Corporate Media

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
