The town of Delaware decided that Josh Fox’s documentary film, Water Under Attack, is “too hot” for their town according to River Reporter.
Fox, who is also a theater director, spent over a year visiting gas-drilling sites in 32 states. “I am a director and producer of documentary films,” he said. “I do not consider this film about gas drilling as one-sided. It’s a documentary that doesn’t take a position but reports on what it sees. I have to admit that what the film shows is not good news because it asks a lot of probing questions.”
Wow! If I lived in the town of Delaware, I’d be looking at the campaign finance reports to see how much industry money has been funneled to the town supervisor and his board members. Considering that Delaware water already has a whole lot of scary chemicals in it, why would the Town Supervisor ban information that can protect that vital resource.
On second thought, this might not be a bad thing at all: Anybody remember what happened when Harry Potter was banned from school libraries? J.K. Rowling went from an impoverished single mother to a billionaire. Josh, Dude, remember us little people when you hit the big-time man!
