Gasland Film Producer Arrested

by John Randolph   |  February 1st, 2012 0

The Huffington Post reported Feb. 1 that the  “Gasland” film producer Josh Fox was prevented from filming a public U.S. Congressional committee hearing on the affects of Marcellus shale-gas drilling and then arrested by Capitol police.

“In a stunning break with First Amendment policy, House Republicans directed Capitol Hill police to detain a highly regarded documentary crew that was attempting to film a Wednesday hearing on a controversial natural gas procurement practice. Initial reports from sources suggested that an ABC News camera was also prevented from taping the hearing; ABC has since denied that they sent a crew to the hearing.”
