Uncovered Documents Reveal MSNBC Show Worked to Promote Fracking

The documents, obtained from Oklahoma State University (OSU), relate to the filming of an episode of The Dylan Ratigan Show on the OSU campus in April 2011. The episode came two and a half years before the network announced in late-2013 that its website would run native advertisements (content that looks like original news) on behalf of fracking lobbying group America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA). ANGA is now part of the American Petroleum Institute (API).

Update on Lancashire fracking appeals and judicial review

RAG, which opposed both applications, has argued that “there is no credible need” for the monitors because the fracking application had been refused. In seeking a judicial review, it said:

“Win or lose, the hearing demonstrates the importance of the principle that littering the Fylde with unnecessary industrial paraphernalia cannot be allowed”.

“It is certain that this High Court hearing will not be the end of an opposition which will never go away”.
