Poll a Fraud

Your presentation of choices in the Measure P poll is fraudulent.

Choice 1: No on P: keep the oil industry in Santa Barbara????!!!!

The passage of Measure P does not kick the oil industry out of Santa Barbara as that choice implies!! Measure P bans specific oil/gas drilling procedures: fracking, cyclic steam injection, and acidizing.

Do you care anything about the slanted reputation your publication is accumulating?
