Fox still promotes conspiracy theory on EPA spill

On August 12, FoxNation.com republished portions of a post by The Gateway Pundit headlined, “Letter to Editor PREDICTED COLORADO EPA SPILL One Week Before Catastrophe So EPA Could Secure Control of Area.” Fox Nation highlighted the portion of the Gateway Pundit post in which author Jim Hoft wrote: “The letter detailed verbatim, how EPA officials would foul up the Animas River on purpose in order to secure superfund money. If the Gold King mine was declared a superfund site it would essentially kill future development for the mining industry in the area. The Obama EPA is vehemently opposed to mining and development.”

Examiner.com also cited the letter in an August 12 post claiming “[e]vidence suggests that the EPA’s Animas wastewater spill was purposeful for gaining Superfund money.” The conspiratorial letter was also republished inThe Wall Street Journal, although The Journal described the spill as an “accident” and only cited the letter to suggest further EPA action “may make the situation worse.”
