Why have mainstream media outlets refused to report on the Exxon oil spill in Arkansas?


There was initial reporting on the ruptured pipeline and oil spill in an Arkansas residential area, but as quick as it was reported it has been hushed up. Reporters going to the site have been threatened with arrest and even the FAA has declared the area a "no fly zone." Who do you think is pulling all of the strings and why are news channels not giving time to this environmental hazard? Last week for instance, the major networks talked nonstop about the nonsensical 50 year anniversary of the soap opera "General Hospital," yet couldn't report on Exxon? What the heck is going on?c

    Plus, I think much of the lack of coverage is due to the pending XL Pipeline deal.

    There doesn't seem to be much true journalism anymore. News has become fluff and entertainment. Halle Barry is pregnant at 46. Wow...I was dying to know that little tidbit.

    Please go to Mayflower and tell that town your version of what was done to their homes, businesses and lives. I am sure they will welcome your truths with open hearts.
