Laura Legere, long-time lackey for the fractivist cause, has produced another hit piece on the natural gas industry that leaves out the most important facts.
Laura Legere is no journalist. She’s a hard-core advocate playacting as one and always has been. A weekend story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Philadelphia Inquirer, to which she “contributed,” is just the latest fusillade aimed at an industry she has long despised. When Laura was still at the Scranton Times, I once did an analysis of her natural gas coverage over the preceding year and found she had written nearly 40 stories on the subject, all but one of which were relentlessly negative. She is anything but objective and that has been proven yet again with this latest phony hit piece aimed at the industry in regard to the Pennsylvania severance tax debate. Fortunately, the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) is fighting back.
