If you didn't realize it there is a major oil spill in Arkansas that has a blackout on it. The only media reporting is Mother Jones. There is also a no fly zone in place. I find the protection of big oil in all this to be disgusting. What do they think we may reconsider the Keystone pipeline?

There's been no "blackout" and Mother Jones is not the "only media reporting." It's been covered by most major media outlets at one point or another. Maybe not a 24/7/365 level of coverage you may want ... but certainly no "blackout."

Don't see anything about it on the major news websites. At least upon 1st glance. I do see a lot of disinformation though.
