‘Gasland’ Director Josh Fox Explains His Arrest on MSNBC

'Gasland' Director Josh Fox Explains His Arrest on MSNBC

Gasland” director Josh Fox was arrested yesterday while documenting a public hearing concerning the topic of hyrdaulic fracturing (fracking).  As Indiewire reported yesterday, Fox was later released

The arrest, whose lack of ground is attested to by Fox in the clip (he explains how he received permission), was also questioned by a female voice who asked the representatives on the panel “What about transparency?”

“Gasland” and “Gasland 2” attempt to uncover the oil and gas industry’s coverup of the alleged adverse effects of fracking.

Last night, after Fox was released, he headed to MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” where he explained to Ed Schultz why he was at the public hearing. Fox also addressed “Gasland 2,” which he says is very nearly done.
