NY Environmental Commissioner Blasts NYT

In a letter published in today's NYT, NY Commissioner Joe Martens says, "I am deeply troubled by your coverage of my agency's new proposed recommendations for high-volume hydraulic fracturing in New York State...Your coverage has created more heat than light on hydraulic fracturing at a crucial moment in the rule making process."

An then these biting words, "The New York Times has a responsibility to present accurate and balanced coverage of such a controversial matter, and it failed miserably."

Well said. But Commissioner Martens better get used to but never accept irresponsible NYT gas coverage. It is not going away and is just part of the very hot seat that he fills.
