Don't expect to see an HBO movie about this any time soon.

Several times over the years this blog has been on top of a story in Ecuador in which Chevron was railroaded by fraudulent lawsuits directed by the Obama administration over environmental damage. This video gives a quick overview of the fraud perpetrated by radicals and extremists working with a US Attorney:

The only thing missing from the video is the involvement of the US government under President Obama.  Now it seems that Sharon Stone is involved as well.  She was slated to show up for an environmentalist rally to give her support and publicity, but its the same group that tried to defraud Chevron and now she's denying she was there to hurt Chevron.
Stone claims she knew nothing about the story, which despite snark in some quarters about how smart she claims to be, I buy.  Almost nobody is covering this despite it be a fascinating and major news story.  And the story gets worse, as Hollywood Reporter, er, reports:
Prior to Ms. Stone traveling to Ecuador, MCS, acting as the public relations arm for the Republic of Ecuador, issued a press release asserting that the purpose of Ms. Stone’s expected trip was to support the Ecuadorian government’s 'Dirty Hand of Chevron' campaign," Stone's attorney Andrew Brettler wrote in a March 3 letter to the judge. "At no time did Ms. Stone agree to support this campaign, advance any other political agenda of the Ecuadorian government, or advocate against Chevron. In addition, Ms. Stone subsequently learned that MCS failed to disclose that it was conducting public relations activities in the United States on behalf of the Republic of Ecuador in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which requires a foreign agent to register with the U.S. Department of Justice.
MCSquared is pretty much just a totally corrupt organization, and they have filed a breach of contract suit against Sharon Stone for refusing to go show up and help them defraud Chevron.  Previously, celebrity useful idiots such as Danny Glover and Mia Farrow have flown to Ecuador to help MCSquared.
They aren't giving up despite losing a major lawsuit and since they have no visible source of income, one wonders how MCS is managing to keep paying for leftist celebrities and rallies and legal fees in Ecuador.  Seems like that might be a story too, one that ends up in Red Square.
