Why are You Still Watching NBC News?

That was a question put to me by a long time conservative friend who was visiting for a week from Alabama. Tonight the question came to the forefront when NBC ran a story about the oil boom on Ohio, where towns and counties are approving drilling techniques that uses fracking technology to recover tightly trapped oil and gas.
In the story NBC ran a clip from GasLand, showing gas coming our of a water faucet which was ignited by the owner. The gas has been verified as natural methane coming from a hose attached to the faucet and not natural gas or fracking fluids. NBC knows that this video clip is a fraud, but continues to support the environmental wacko who claim that fracking is dangerous. However, the people of Ohio were not buying it.
Why do I still watch NBC News? So I can count up the daily lies and see how many time I can whack my Bullshit Button in 30 minutes of propaganda. Some nights it is a regular cacophony.
