    'Gasland’ Director Confronted on NPR Show

    'Gasland' Director Confronted on NPR Show | Washington Free Beacon

    Environmentalist filmmaker Josh Fox grew frustrated during a recent public radio interview when asked about apparent falsehoods in his Oscar-nominated 2010 documentary Gasland.

    Fox asked an interviewer with Aspen public radio station KAJX to go “off the record” so he could explain why he represented a gas extraction lease created by a group of Pennsylvania landowners as a $100,000 offer from a gas company to extract natural gas from his land.

    These types of "documentaries" are aimed at low information drones. I remember seeing it for the first time and thinking how similar it was to the garbage that Michael Moore puts outs. A compilation of half truths and downright fabrications.

    Sad part is so many people see these propaganda films and swallow them hook line and sinker.

    I went to see Fahrenheit 9/11 at the theater, kept getting dirty looks for laughing at certain parts of it.

    Sorry, but that is a flat out lie. If it was safe there would be ZERO issues with it. Now, don't get me wrong, there are risks with EVERYTHING dealing with oil and gas and I'm not on the "Let's not do it" bandwagon, but to call it safe is a flat out lie.

    explain why he represented a gas extraction lease .... as a $100,000 offer from a gas company to extract natural gas from his land

    Seriously???? Why did he represent a gas extraction lease as being paid for extracting gas?

    Oh that movie was horrible. I really did not like George W. Bush, but that was so over the top inaccurate in its representations it was closer to Disney's Fantasia than a documentary.

    I have not seen nor do I intend to see the gasland movie. If you want to do it on the plains of New York City or LA that is fine, just as long as you do not do it near where civilized people live. I don't want flame throwing spigots.

    That is a lie - there are problems with fracking.
