Big Oil Pressured Scientists Over Fracking Wastewater's Link to Quakes

Oklahoma frackingIn November 2013, Austin Holland, Oklahoma’s state seismologist, got a request that made him nervous. It was from David Boren, president of the University of Oklahoma, which houses the Oklahoma Geological Survey where Holland works. Boren, a former U.S. senator, asked Holland to his office for coffee with Harold Hamm, the billionaire founder of Continental Resources, one of Oklahoma’s largest oil and gas operators.

Boren sits on the board of Continental, and Hamm is a big donor to the university, giving $20 million in 2011 for a new diabetes center. Says Holland: “It was just a little bit intimidating.”

If this is what an anti-war presidency looks like to you, you're detached from reality

ObamaNothing sums up the warped foreign policy fantasy world in which Republicans live more than when House Speaker John Boehner recently called Obama an “anti-war president” under which America “is sitting on the sidelines” in the increasingly chaotic Middle East.

If Obama is an anti-war president, he’s the worst anti-war president in history. In the last six years, the Obama administration has bombed seven countries in the Middle East alone and armed countless more with tens of billions in dollars in weapons. But that’s apparently not enough for Republicans.

O'Reilly cameraman disputes Falklands account

Bill O'ReilllyBill O'Reilly's cameraman during a 1982 Buenos Aires protest says the Fox News host was nowhere near him during the riot, casting further doubt on O'Reilly's already dubious claims about his experience as a reporter during the Falklands War.

"I never fell nor was I bleeding out my ear at any time during my Buenos Aires assignment," Ignacio Medrano-Carbo, who claims to have shot 99 percent of O'Reilly's footage that night, told Mother Jones on Monday. "I do not even recall Mr. O'Reilly being near me when I shot all that footage nor after I left the unrest at Plaza de Mayo that evening.
