'A green campaign group made a series of misleading claims about the health and environmental impacts of fracking, according to a damning draft ruling by the advertising watchdog.Friends of the Earth (FoE) failed to substantiate claims that fracking could cause cancer, contaminate water supplies, increase asthma rates and send house prices plummeting, the Advertising Standards Authority says.'

Fracking scare stories condemned by watchdog per The Times but unlikely to be reported by the BBC
The Times reports http://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/fracking-scare-stories-condemned-by-watchdog-mkw6dn6t0
Oddly I can't find where the BBC are reporting this ruling, maybe because they don't plan on doing so or even just correcting anyone who makes similar unsubstantiated claims in the future.
