I've spent most of the day talking to reporters about the PSYOPS story that broke yesterday and has now gone viral. This is the most fun version of the story.
I'm not a good note taker which is why I thought I would record parts of the conference. After the first panel, I decided to record the entire thing. And Matt Pitzarella of Range Resources and Matt Carmichael of Anadarko got caught with their pants down -- recommending using military tactics on communities.
Their attempts to spin out of the mess they created has been tragicomic.

This past weekend, The Texas Tribune, the nonprofit news site that enjoys a higher profile in the journalism world (than it would otherwise) thanks to its partnership with The New York Times, held a lecture-and-networking event on the University of Texas campus in Austin.
I was invited to appear on a panel after the showing of the documentary Haynesville: A Nation’s Hunt for an Energy Future.
I knew the film depicted natural gas drilling in the Haynesville Shale as an economic miracle for folks in north Louisiana and East Texas, with barely a mention of environmental health risks. I said yes, received an enthusiastic confirmation letter requesting my bio, which I sent in, a request to sign the “Talent Agreement,” and a list of the panel members.
