What Exxon Won’t Let the Media Show You

This is some aerial footage of the Mayflower, Arkansas oil spill that is currently NOT being reported by network media.

In my Kansas City market, less than 1 minute of reporting time went into describing to the people in our area the nature of the event, it’s extent and steps toward resolution. They did an even poorer job of explaining that the toxic mess left by this spill is actually Canadian Tar Sands, the same evil goo that oil companies want to ship through the Keystone XL pipeline once they get enough corrupt politicians on board to make it legal.

It may just be me, but what I see in the video looks quite a bit larger than the problem briefly described on our lame television news. Seriously, an abusive basketball coach is currently getting more air time for being a douchebag than this oil spill is for destroying an entire housing development’s worth, polluting a substantial adjacent waterway, killing local wildlife and rendering homes uninhabitable for many in the neighborhood.

This is how Big Capitalism works.
