The Blogfather is defending a left leaning bloggers reporting about the explosion in western PA of a gas well because a local talk radio gasbag has decided that the controversy about the Marcellus Shale gas drilling is his issue. Someone had the audacity to mention on his show that a blogger had tried to get to the details and was cut off because "we don't know who they are."
The blogger in question is Mike Morrill of Keystone Progress who tried to get access the site but reports "they not only wouldn’t let me on the site, they told me I might be shot for being on their property and then sent thugs to chase me and threaten me."
More from Markie:
He went on to say that the accurate information comes from the print media and...wait for it...here it comes...talk radio.
Mark has been all over this issue since 2008 and Kayak Dude warns that water pollution is a real worry. Read the profile of Don in the CV, he knows what he is talking about.
Bloggers are doing great work on this issue and have been far ahead of the traditional media.
