Stop the presses: Left-leaning media critics give props to Tribune-Review (and ding Post-Gazette) for fracking coverage

Media Matters for America, a left-leaning media watchdog group, recently had tough words for how two of Pennsylvania's largest newspapers are covering a natural-gas drilling issue ... and amazingly enough, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wasn't one of them.

In a Monday post, MMFA complained that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Philadelphia Inquirer "have failed to mention" the controversy surrounding half-century-old law that could allow a company to drill for natural gas beneath the land of property owners who never agreed to it. MMFA credits the Tribune-Review, meanwhile, as being "the only of the three highest-circulating papers in Pennsylvania to cover the story."
