LIVE at 11 A.M.: What’s Going on With the Line 3 Protests?


With the vigorous demonstrations against the Line 3 pipeline replacement project, the upper Midwest is getting another front-and-center look at the often vicious politics of energy infrastructure.

Left-wing activists train to be arrested, the plot conflict with law enforcement, all to produce media coverage that is sympathetic to their cause.

Meanwhile, every single one of us, including the most ardent and extreme of pipeline protesters, is using the oil moved by pipelines every day.

Jay Thomas from WDAY AM970 in Fargo joins this episode of Plain Talk to talk about the Line 3 protests and pipeline politics in general.
