Perry Denies Fracking Causes Pollution

At an event in Iowa over the weekend, Rick Perry responded to a question about fracking by denying that it caused pollution, reports the Des Moines Register:

Show me the paper. I am truly offended that the American public would be hoodwinked by stories that do not scientifically holdup. If that was true, it would be on the front page of every newspaper. It would be on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News. Everybody would be running that story.

As the Register points out, such papers do exist.
