Fracking lies

While it is true fracking has been used in Colorado for years as it has elsewhere in this country, but the important difference is that it was limited to vertical well unclogging not horizontal fracking as is now done. The oil companies are not at all interested in the gas as much as 30% of all natural gas in the new fields in N. Dakota is flared uselessly polluting our air. The oil companies don't care about the gas they want the oil which is very profitable now. So lets try to act like your not bribed by the big oil and gas companies even if you are as is so very plain for all of us long time supporters. You don't need my tax dollars or my support. Go whore your self's to big oil and gas and you'll get it in the end if you know what I mean.
Thank you!

Thank you for airing this documentary. It was very eye-opening and I learned a lot. It was nice to see something other than Hollywood leftist extreme environmentalist propaganda, such as Gasland. Fracking is a complex issue. There are positives and negatives. Please don't let these close minded people dictate the narrative on what you should and shouldn't show on your station. Many of us do appreciate it but we dont' appreciate bullies who want to dictate what the truth is. Thanks again.

This is a sad proof that you at pbs really are run by money given to you.it makes me sick to my stomach that you would permits this garage to be aired. The nazi regime also scared people in to backing down about there believes and feelings(killing millions). Your programming selling dirty energy all evening long makes me laugh, you may trick the mentally weak but those of us who know the truth will not be tricked by your lies !!

 Thank you for your email.
Colorado Public Television aired Split Estate an anti fracking documentary right before we aired FrackNation on Saturday.
I am sorry you missed it.

False Equivalency

Okay, it's great to know what people think, but that doesn't make their opinions true. If I wanted to see people on TV express their opinions, I'd go to Fox, CNN, MSNBC. I can see pro-fracking opinions (and lies) on any network supported by big oil (PBS) or owned by a multinational (Fox, CNN, MSNBC). They make everything out to be equal: one side is the same as another. NO, no no! I want scientific evidence backing up claims. Of course, a lot of people support fracking because it's their bread and butter, and I understand that in this desperate economy. However, no matter what opinions people hold, I don't want America's children drinking water with fracking chemicals in them, and I don't want man-made earthquakes caused by fracking. I believe that, perhaps, fracking has been experienced differently in different parts of the country, which may be a factor in people who take either side. But, what's the scientific truth? And what are the sources on both sides because we know that people and even scientists can be bought off. I'm disappointed in you, KBDI, because your assertion of equivalency between the two sides is FALSE. I've grown up with the expectation that out of all the PBS stations, Channel 12 would offer me alternative views approximating the truth, but you've turned to the mediocrity of the big networks, which are no longer respected because of their obfuscations and equivocating. I hope you get the big money you're trying to get from this presentation, but you certainly won't get my "small" money or support. I might as well send a check to CNN.

Thank you for your email and feedback.
 
I want you to know, Colorado Public Television did also air the film Split Estate (a less favorable film on the consequences of fracking).
 
Fracking is a very controversial and complicated issue in our region. CPT12 hoped to present our viewers with different sides of this issue.
 
Your feedback will help us with programming decisions in the future.
 
Sincerely,
