Shell, it seems, is being plagued by activists. And the media outlets (and that includes bloggers) that cover Shell, should be extra careful about rushing out news today. As Gawker's Adrian Chen reported earlier, a video supposedly shot at a party thrown by the oil giant turned out to be a hoax. Also a hoax? A Shell news release we received not half an hour ago saying that the company was going to sue the parties responsible for the hoax video.
