As public concern over the United States' oil dependence increases, so have efforts to widen the range of oil replacements available for use. Concurrently, newspapers are responding to the increased public attention and the research taking place in this field by devoting more and more space to issues relating to oil and energy. Since 2006, ethanol has been one area of interest that has received a lot of attention from the media. However, that media attention has been narrowly focused, and often fails to take into account the true complexity of the issue of corn ethanol.
