If you scream loud and long enough for a liberal cause, the media listen. Pipeline opponents dominated network reporting of the Obama administration’s decision to refuse permission for a section of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
#NoDAPL Protesters cheered the Army Corps of Engineers’ Dec. 4, announcement that it would not grant an easement allowing construction of the pipeline across Lake Oahe and the Missouri River, near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. None of the reports pointed out that the Corps. granted permission for the crossing in July 2016.
