and an apology to other potential recipients for giving in to their whining. I'm surprised that they didn't stick to their guns about the compliance issue. That is absolutely a condition for transplantation. For example liver transplant recipients have to be alcohol free for a long time period before getting a liver. If they don't, they don't get a liver, simple as that.

Even though Vice is 'hipster-y", it shouldn't be disqualified as a non-reputable source because of that characteristic. That's called an "ad hominem" fallacy. I find that they're somewhat way more obective when reporting stories, even though they have what I have seen, left leaning opinions (I do dissagree with some of their writers, but I find some of what they say interesting from a different point of view).
I wouldn't expect an extremely left state to be the highest producer of oil, I think anyone would agree on that. The US doesn't even produce oil at the capacity it could. Therefore, it would be reasonable to suggest that maybe some of the derricks halted, and are re-activated when needed. Likewise, saying that there are tons of derricks in LA that are disguised from the public for aesthetic reasons, isn't directly stating that they are currently active.
Where does it say that there is only one active derrick in the CDC report?

That was a blanket judgement of Vice, certainly, but he cited no sources and very likely didn't do the research himself he should have said so if he had and walked up to people claiming he had the absolute truth about some shit he didn't really know exactly. That's shitty reporting.
I wasn't disputing whether they were active or inactive, just the claims that it is "the third most productive field in the US", as the infographic describes, or that it is the "the third largest field oil field in the country", according to the video. Both of these claims are patently and demonstrably false as shown in the report (pages 63 and 94).
I don't think he was being rude, just ignorant. I interpreted the way linked the clip as saying "here, this is sufficient proof of this claim being made", when clearly it is providing wrong information in a very misleading manner.

Oh, it didn't realize it said that it's the top 3 oil producer. My link was mostly for the hidden wells. But that's the actual source the kickass facts guy used, they steal all their "facts" from reddit. But they just copy the title without changing it or reading the comments to see if there are any corrections.
