A recent "60 Minutes" segment is drawing sharp criticism for its pessimistic take on the green technology sector, which questioned whether clean tech has become a "dirty word."

We are still getting brainwashed by the 1% (Who own the media). Why do we listen?

Did Issa bankroll this segment or was it the Koch Brothers?

Noted. So sad about 60 Minutes. They used to have some credibility. I remember their reporters following people around with a microphone asking them questions. Oh, the good ol' days!

I have been noticing the mistakes the media has been making- what has happened to good reporting. It is a.most to the point that I do not know who to believe anymore - 60 Minutes is a good example of credibility.
Is everything moving so fast, that the media cannot keep up with truthful facts?
Thank You Carrie.

Well when you are owned by the big money you have to day something bad about progress being made. The real "flop" is how big energy exploits consumers every day and gets away with it.

It's an irony really - while the average consumer (us) is hoping that corporations are taking us to greener solutions through innovative technology, the reality is that most big oil, energy and manufacturing companies are reluctant to invest in new technology, preferring to keep their profits at maximum (for minimum investment) in the dirty technologies which are increasing - raping the planet is free! Protecting it, costs money. It is all a big con and the media are bought and paid for by those corporations who want us to believe that green technology is not possible.
