While I agree that those websites' objectivity might be questionable, it's more
probable that the authors involved (and popular opinion) aren't making a
distinction between fracking and injection wells.
(The HuffPo link gave me a 404 error, but the RT article does go on to describe
injection despite its headline. Sloppy reporting, but about what I'd expect
from journalism today.)
There's more to injection wells than waste disposal from fracking operations,
but you have to admit that the use of deep injection has increased as fracking
has become more common.

Those aren't exactly unbiased websites!
The fact of the matter is that there will be debate for a long time over the
issue. Until the incidence of earthquakes occurring AT FRACKING DEPTH goes up a
meaningful amount, it will continue. Most earthquakes take place far, far
deeper in the earth than fracking depth. As was stated earlier, there most be
faults to allow plates to shift along one another for there to be a quake.
