"Washington's Latest Special Favor" )
Of the nation's 143 refineries, one was exempted from the EPA's ethanol mandate. Why?

The author basically slams the EPA for making an exception to the RFS for one refinery in 2013. We presume that the exception was allowed because of a situation like brer has outlined in which a refinery and producer are unbalanced, etc., as happened in 2011 and 2012. But the author claims this is unfair.

It seems that even as the defenders of oil bash the EPA for not being flexible enough, they like to turn around bash any apparent flexibility too.

Flexibility should be YES or NO, not you are ok you are not. Favors for money = corruption. Personally I just want ethanol out of my gas because it isn't as good as pure gas. Buy an E85 car and buy that if you like it so much.
