New Site FractCheck.com Fact Checks Wild Fracking Claims

For years Hollywood celebrities and those who want to be celebrities have lied and spread fake news about fracking. Some of the more colorful attempts have come from the likes of the singularly untalented Julian Lenon and stepmom Yoko Ono “singing” (if that’s what you call it) the song “Don’t Frack My Mother” (see “Frack” No Longer a Naughty Word, Loses its Sex Appeal). Susan Sarandon joined Yoko Ono and Julian Lennon on a fossil fuel-belching bus trip of northeastern PA to visit fracking sites and spread more lies (see Looney Toons Anti-Fracking Celebrities Visit Montrose, PA). When these gits make their wild claims, mainstream media doesn’t bother to fact check it–because mainstream media doesn’t care what the truth is. There’s only the narrative they support–which is fossil fuels are evil, carbon (and methane) are toasting Mom Earth, yada yada yada. So when we get claims like “fracking pollutes water” or “fracking causes asthma” there is no one, aside from sources like MDN, to set the record straight. Now there is. Texans for Natural Gas, a pro-energy grassroots group with more than 270,000 members, has launched a new website called FractCheck.com. FractCheck.com will fact check major claims about fracking. Egregiously false claims will be branded as such and accurate claims will be acknowledged as “Fracts.” Cool, eh? It’s about time we started fact checking these empty-headed Hollywood types, to expose them for the vapid people they really are…
