Ha ha ha! Not only did they get it wrong in the title but also in the first line of the article.

One letter does make a huge difference. :)

Propaganda paid by oil companies? They do not especially referring to pollution and death. Only money has a consideration.

ROFL ...

The oil & gas industry propaganda offered on this site just keeps getting better and better.

Broken links, can't even spell the name of the propaganda site nor the process name?

Just what "talents" are required to be a shill for the oil & gas industry these days?

No worries. Bretbart is not a news site.
Fox News looks downright liberal next to Bretbart.

Franking? Isn't that like a postmark or something? I didn't no there was a dispute about the benefits or liabilities of postmarks.

Congress not paying postage has an advantage: it keeps the Postal Service trucks from rattling around empty.

On the surface, this sounds like a propaganda piece, so maybe it is not so bad that the article is not available.

Hmmm. So this article with the poorly spelled headline and blurb here says the President actually supports fracking. That isn't what Fox tells us.

"Franking" is how your Congresscritter avoids paying postage to send you campaign literature disguised as a report on what (s)he is doing.
