Fox News Interview Implosion? Host Stuart Varney Kicks Off Anti-Fracking Guest

“The US Environmental Protection Agency has issued a long-awaited draft report on hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) which concluded that there is no evidence that fracking has ‘led to widespread, systemic impact on drinking water resources in the United States,’” writes lexology.com.

“A landmark Environmental Protection Agency report on the impact of hydraulic fracturing has found no evidence that the contentious technique of oil and gas extraction has had a widespread effect on the nation’s water supply, the agency said Thursday,” writes The New York Times.

“Nevertheless, the long-awaited draft report found that the techniques used in hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, do have the potential to contaminate drinking water.”

Recently, host Stewart Varney interviewed anti-fracking activist and producer of the documentary Gasland Josh Fox about the recent EPA report.

It always seemed like Fox doesn’t interview liberal guests very often, because the interviews boil down to chaos. Often, they choose to interview their own people – Fox News contributors, analysts, other hosts, etc.

What is FOIA?  FOIA is the Freedom of Information Act.  According to Wikipedia, it is a federal freedom of information law that allows for the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the U.S. government. The Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures, and grants nine exemptions to the statute.  This amendment was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, despite his misgivings, on July 4, 1966, and went into effect in 1967.  FOIA allows groups to petition the government to release certain information on an ethical basis.

The excitement begins around the 3:10 mark.

Senator Believes That Police Chief Who Exposed Josh Duggar Should Face Criminal Charges


TYT Network

A Republican politician in Arkansas called for the termination of the police chief who released a 2006 offense report alleging that Josh Duggar, of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” molested five underage girls when he was a teenager.

State Senator Bart Hester (R) told local TV station KFSM that he believed Springdale Police Chief Kathy O’Kelly compromised the identities of the eldest Duggar’s alleged victims by releasing the police report, writes Talking Points Memo.

“I believe it is unavoidable that the Springdale police chief should be terminated. She has re-victimized these young ladies,” said Hester.

Tabloid magazine In Touch Weekly reportedly published the offense report, which it obtained through a public records request.

According to TPM, the names of the victims, as well as Josh Duggar’s name, were redacted. The report was destroyed the same day it was published in the magazine by order of Judge Stacey Zimmerman, writes TPM.
