Letter: Corporations hold bottom line before public interest

To the editor:

Many people, many through no fault of their own, are simply misinformed, as was Ed Shultz for weeks on his early evening MSNBC TV show, until he began visiting people on the ground who are and have been directly affected by a fracked gas pipeline.

Not only has Ed Shultz changed his mind, and he was very much for the Keystone XL pipeline, he's been able to cut through the private-for-profit corporate propaganda to uncover the actual cost of the pipeline on our air and water quality and people's health, its affect on the land, our homes and pocket books. He's now become one of the most vocal in its opposition; so outraged, in fact, he's hardly missed a show since uncovering the facts regarding the wholesale devastation of what occurs when fracked gas is pushed through for the profit of the few.
