PostSubject: Rising Gas Prices Linked to Obama Drilling Ban in Just 1% of Evening News Stories   Mon 25 Apr 2011, 4:34 pm

Gas prices have risen almost $1-a-gallon since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, yet President Obama's drilling moratorium and other anti-oil policies have barely been mentioned by the Lame Stream Media in that time span.

Only 1 percent (3 out of 280) of oil price stories since the spill has made any connection between the administration's anti-oil actions and the jump in gasoline prices.

Gasoline cost $2.73 per gallon when Obama instituted his sixth-month moratorium on deepwater and shallow drilling on May 30, 2010. Prices are now more than a dollar-a-gallon higher. Pump prices have more than doubled since Obama took office in January 2009.

"After two federal courts said the moratorium was illegal, the Obama administration instead moved to a de facto moratorium, by issuing no permits, while speeding up the permitting process for wind farms," The Heritage Foundation wrote back in December 2010.

Yet most of the network stories about gas prices didn't even ask if such policies were contributing to the rise. During the Bush years, the networks did the opposite - criticizing the president for gas prices, asking what the government should do and even entertaining far-left conspiracy theories about gas prices manipulation and election outcomes.

Former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister made the prediction in December 2010 that America would face $5/gallon gasoline by 2012, a full month before the revolution in Egypt began."

Hofmeister has previously criticized the Obama administration for the drilling moratorium and at the time of his $5 prediction blamed the "pure politics" keeping "us from drilling more of our resources" for the rising gas prices.

The Business & Media Institute searched Nexis transcripts of ABC "World News," NBC "Nightly News" and CBS "Evening News" for the words "oil" and "price" from the day of the oil spill (April 20, 2010) through March 30, 2011. The searched yielded 280 stories, but only 60 of them mentioned gas prices at all. A meager 3 stories (1 percent of the 280 stories) cited Obama's drilling moratorium or any other Obama policy as a factor in the huge jump in gas prices.
