Reading Between the Headlines: The Issues of Fracking and Free Speech Collide

In The Rockaways a pipeline debate took a contentious turn.  The issues of Free Speech and Fracking collided. This has national implications.

It isn't a coincidence that all the screenshots are of articles in Al Jazeera written by Peter Moskowitz. I chose the articles for a reason. 

In The Rockaways a pipeline debate took a very contentious turn. The issues of "Free Speech" and "Fracking" collided. This is not just a local issue. It has national implications. The truth has been buried and in its place in the news only myth and misinformation multiply. The people responsible for the myth and misinformation are antifracking activists and reporters. They all have names. Many have been mentioned on this blog but not all.

"If you shut up truth, and bury it underground, it will but grow." --Emile Zola

"An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it." -- Mahatma Gandhi
