WATCH: The Promised Land of Fracking at Bloggers Briefing

Posted By Michael Sandoval On January 15, 2013 @ 11:45 am In Featured | Comments Disabled

Matt Damon’s anti-fracking movie [1] (financed by an oil-rich Arab nation [2]) was a dud at the box office this month. Let’s hope that’s a sign Americans won’t entertain such Hollywood propaganda.

Fortunately, there’s now an alternative that presents a different perspective on hydraulic fracturing. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer, Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda have created a documentary called “FrackNation [3]” that takes on Josh Fox’s misleading and inaccurate “Gasland,” the most prominent anti-fracking film.

Phelim McAleer will join us Tuesday at the Bloggers Briefing to talk about the film, which was made possible by a Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $210,000 from about 3,300 supporters.

Following his presentation, we’ll learn about a new book from Students for Life, “Courageous: Students Abolishing Abortion in this Lifetime [4].” Kristan Hawkins, the book’s author and president of Students for Life, will be with us. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
