Got oil?  US railroads spilled more oil in 2013--1.15 million gallons--than in the previous four decades combined.

In brief

A look at recent sins of omission and sins of commission of the mainstream news media

For omission, we look at some of the stories in the latest report by Project Censored.  For commission, we explore the rash of recent news stories warning of shortages of particular branded products--Butterball turkeys, Sriracha sauce, and now Velveeta! 

Plus a clip from Project Censored's movie, a news story in song by David Rovics, and an update on the great toilet paper shortage of 1973.
