About the Author

is tryin' to help society help itself (and other species) with the power of the word. He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor, but he's also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession and Solar Love. Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. He has presented about cleantech at conferences in India, the UAE, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, and Canada. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in. But he offers no professional investment advice and would rather not be responsible for you losing money, so don't jump to conclusions.

    The video is not available for viewing in my country, but let me guess, it shows a ‘rip and read’ being done across various networks. (Although nowadays I guess it would be a ‘click and read’.)

    • yeah, a ton of them. line being: “you don’t need us to tell you that gas prices are back on the rise.”

    Such a “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” moment. All four big networks were shown in those clips. They were clearly reading from a press release sent out by someone. An oil industry PR firm? A political organization?
    What’s horrifying is that most Americans still get their “information” from local TV news.

  • you mean to tell me that only a few corporations own all of the media??? who’da thunk it??
