Media matters has put together a video that shreds the Fox News talking points about jobs from Keystone XL.

Big oil’s allies in the GOP are trying to paint President Obama as a jobs-killer for cancelling the pipeline – a decision the GOP forced on him.

How many jobs would the pipeline create? The conservative media starts with 10,000 jobs… and just keeps ratcheting up.

Funny thing, though, when you actually ask the pipeline company how many long-term jobs would be created… they have to honestly answer “only hundreds”.
