News media misrepresent the truth about fracking

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I am tired of seeing news media and extreme environmentalists expounding a false premise (out-and-out lies).

The news media claim they are fair and balanced. Yet they promote a false agenda with headlines that are factually wrong.

Fracking is one of the safest forms of drilling that man has come up with.

If the news media want to be fair and balanced, they should print headlines about how safe this form of drilling has been.

Drilling has not harmed farms or any other residential areas.

All the emotional reactions the media rile up, when they are wrong, should be addressed.

Lies are the wrong approach.
