Thanks, ABC News!

By Cassandra D

Thanks to ABC News for stepping up to the plate to report on the challenge to some propaganda coming our way. This time it was the anti-Gore YouTube feature brought to us by the PR folks who represent Exxon. Too often the major networks have not reported the little bit of investigative reporting that gets done these days. It is as if the label, "Liberal media!" is their equivalent to Congress's "Soft on terror!". Heaven forbid they get that label, so they had better not rock the administration's boat. Unless, of course, it is with something like this.


On a related note, what, exactly, do oil companies have to fear by acknowledging climate change? Or from alternative energy development? Do they really think we will be able to stop using their products? If so, they are a lot more optimistic than almost everyone else. "Peak Oil," anybody?

Good catch, Cassandra. I intended to add this to may post on the Brave New World of media manipulation - using it as another example alongside the Reuters photo manipulation in Lebanon. But you beat me to it!
