Video description:

By Cathy Newman Rose Dickinson, of Friends of the Earth, and Ken Cronin, who represents the UK onshore oil and gas industry. The claims were stark: that chemicals used in fracking could cause cancer, or that drinking water might be contaminated. Now the advertising watchdog says Friends of the Earth has agreed to stop repeating what it called “misleading” claims about fracking. Comment: FoE's Rose Dickinson refuses to admit they were lying and says they will continue to repeat the same lies. ASA is toothless. Caudrilla should sue FoE for slander. Update: 5 Jan 2017 - ASA slaps down FoE https://www.asa.org.uk/News-resources/Media-Centre/2016/Opinion-piece-A-fractious-debate-but-a-clear-outcome.aspx [UK Copyright Fair use: comment on excerpt from FTA broadcast]
