Don’t look so surprised, Matt! We all knew that liberals love a good story more than they like facts.
But Environmentalist filmmaker Josh Fox really stepped deep in the tar pits in a recent interview where he accidentally revealed that his story — meant to scare the daylights out of poor farmers so they remain poor forever — is full of, shall we say, fractures.
Washington Free Beacon: ‘Gasland’ Director Confronted on NPR
The 2012 documentary FrackNation first revealed that the contract Fox presented was neither a firm offer to lease his land, nor written by any gas company looking to do so. The documentary’s creators released a video on Wednesday highlighting Fox’s interview with KAJX.
When asked about that discrepancy by KAJX reporter Elise Thatcher, Fox said that he was a NWPOA member, but “dropped out at the stage where you had to sign” a lease.
NWPOA says that is flatly untrue. “In fact, Josh Fox was never a member of the NWPOA,” it wrote on its website on Tuesday.
“I’m surprised that you were partaking in those conversations, because I didn’t understand that,” Thatcher said during the interview.
Fox appeared to be frustrated, and asked Thatcher, “can we just jump off the record for a second here?”
During the interview, Fox decried FrackNation as a “willfully deceitful project.” But his critics say misrepresentations about the NWPOA and its draft lease underscore Fox’s own disregard for the facts.
Ruh-roh! That’s pretty dismal news for environmentalists and awesome news for the future of American energy. It’s also totally typical of a liberal to get upset with anyone who calls out their bogus fantasies for what they are.
The truth shall set our energy free.
