Exxon Silences Blogger



Exxon Mobil was successful in their request to have a gag order issued on a blogger down in South Texas.  The blog "A Satirical View from the McGill Brothers Lease" is run by a housewife who lives on a 38,000 acre ranch in south Texas that is being leased by subsidiaries of both Exxon Mobil and Chevron

From the "about" section of her website: "I would like to see ExxonMobil, Chevron and their various partners walk away from this lease so the family can get some decent companies to come in, drain the oil and gas from the ground, plug the well bores, and leave so we can live in peace and quiet."

You can read more about the situation at Drilling Reform for Texas.  Here's a link to a pretty good post, it accompanies the video pasted above.  You can see why Exxon wants this woman to stop reporting on this issue.
