Pumping Earth Biofuels
So, having the flu makes you realize just how bad TV is, and just what a waste of money that expensive cable turns out to be. I found myself watching HD PBS, and a gawd-awful show called "America's Heartland" or something similar came on, waxing tearful about family farms, tractors, you know, all those myths that keep our tax dollars raining down on sub-par businesses all over the midwest.
Then, to my amazement, there was a story pumping earth biofuels, complete with Shameless Willie Nelson and Morgan Freeman hyping this junkpile in front of a banner featuring the scam's billboard ticker symbol. Do the "journalists" producing these fluff pieces even bother to do basic research on the companies they're praising?
