CNS' Starr Shills Again for Oil Industry
Topic:'s resident oil industry shill, Penny Starr, comes through again with a Dec. 1 article uncritically repeating Republican claims that the Obama administration's delay of approval for the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline was "putting politics above job creation" and that the pipeline "will create 20,000 jobs."

Starr failed to mention that independent assessments of the pipeline show that it will create far fewer jobs than supporters claim.

Starr also claimed that "the pipeline could reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign oil by bringing as much as 700,000 barrels of oil a day into the country from Canada." Apparently, Canada is not a foreign country.

As we've detailed, CNS' parent organization, the Media Research Center, has received a significant amount of funding from oil and gas interests.
