CNS' Starr Keeps Shilling for Oil Industry
Topic: CNSNews.com

A couple weeks back, we noted how CNSNews.com's Penny Starr has become a reliable shill for the oil industry -- presumably because of the hundreds of thousands of dollars ExxonMobil has given to CNS' parent, the Media Research Center.

Starr turns in another sycophantic effort in a  June 10 article uncritically repeating claims by American Petroleum Institute officials in favor of a new U.S.-Canada oil pipeline. Only two paragraphs mention EPA concerns about the pipeline, while Starr devotes a whopping 12 paragraphs to the API's arguments in favor of it.

That bias, it seems, is what ExxonMobil is paying for.
