Beautiful hostess, hot man. What’s not to love about Chesapeake.
Janee being led to believe that this fresh water pond used for drilling is all for the good of the USA’s energy independence.
On Sunday, May 20, 2012, The Janee Show seen on Dallas Fort Worth’s #1 media giant, broadcast a segment on the ‘truth’ about gas drilling. While we find that Chesapeake Energy’s decision to sponsor Habitat for Humanity to build a home quite a noble deed, they continue the contamination of our environment. Knowing that in order to sell their product to the masses they had to make it palatable,Chesapeake was obligated to use spokesperson Julie Wilson as a balance to the beautiful, blonde, and perky Janee to sell it’s message of drilling for profits.
We are deeply troubled that Belo Broadcasting, associated with both WFAA and the Dallas Morning News decided to move forward with this infomercial for Chesapeake by not balancing the story of shale gas drilling with stories of spills, emissions, and contamination. When we have media giants using the airwaves to sponsor ‘the message’ of an industry that does not have a ‘paid advertisement’ disclaimer within the broadcast, this has overtones of a ‘deal with the devil’.
That is not a good thing.
