So I’m seeing a few articles popping up from relatively progressive news sites giving accolades to Rupert Murdoch regarding his anti-Keystone XL tweets. Yes, he did a favor for the movement against KXL because any fans of his may follow suit, but let’s please please please not forget that if this man was investing in KXL he’d be cheering for it. He’s blasting how bad the oil is only to make the fracked natural gas he does invest in look like the better alternative. He doesn’t care about how dirty the KXL oil is.
Tl;dr- Rupert Murdoch is evil. Fracking is bad.
