Watch: Colbert rips Exxon's cleanup efforts as they "Try to put the Pegasus pipeline oil back underground where it came from and employs a time-honored cleanup technique pioneered by drunk guys."
April 11, 2013

Stephen Colbert weighed in on Exxon's tar sands oil spill in Mayflower, Arkansas this week. He mocks Exxon's cleanup efforts as they "Try to put the Pegasus pipeline oil back underground where it came from and employs a time-honored cleanup technique pioneered by drunk guys."

This segment features video footage taken by the Tar Sands Blockade as they "broke into" Arkansas.

Better coverage by Colbert on the situation there in Mayflower than you'll see on any of the MSM.
