No doubt there are still some valid concerns about fracking disclosures, but it would be hard to argue that there isn't a clear anti-drilling bias in this article. Especially in view of inaccurate paragraphs like this one:
Homeowners in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming have complained that their well water was contaminated with chemicals or methane gas from nearby frack jobs. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last year linked the method to contaminated drinking water in Pavillion, Wyoming; the agency is now retesting some of those findings. The EPA has little authority to regulate fracking; Congress in 2005 stripped it of most such power.The EPA was never stripped of power to regulate fracking, because it never was granted such power. Because of repeated efforts by the agency to try and claim regulatory power over fracking, Congress did take action in 2005 to make it harder for the EPA to try and seize authority that it had no right to (or, as Marcellus Drilling News said it: "Congress had to erect a legal fence").
