Josh Fox Arressted while filming 2/1/12

Fox is making a sequel to his acclaimed 2010 documentary film Gasland, in which he revealed the scale of the contamination of ground water resulting from the use of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” to extract natural gas from oil shale. At the hearing, where Fox was scheduled to film, the subcommittee was due to receive a December 2011 report from the Environmental Protection Agency that confirmed his findings.
“The right to inform and be informed, guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution, was violated twice in this case,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Firstly, Fox’s arrest and expulsion constituted a flagrant act of censorship that was all the more absurd as an official video recording of the hearing is available on the subcommittee’s website.
