According to a recent story in the film industry trade paper Variety, “Veteran oil industry executive William Divine has launched production company Divine Discoveries Prods., which is aiming to portray the oil industry in a positive light.”

Although it might not seem like new news to us, the move is a reminder that people with money and power can wield tremendous ideological and political influence through media production. Of course, there is a long history of scholarly investment in mediated images of oil. So following the development of this new company may be a worthy project for a young scholar interested in emerging media and environmental discourse.
