Tribeca Film Festival lies about shutting out farmers
Phelim McAleer (maker of the pro-fracking documentary FrackNation) was supposed to attend the world premiere of Gasland 2 at the Tribeca Film Festival and write a review for the New York Post.
When he got there, he asked some tough questions of Josh Fox (maker of the anti-fracking documentaries Gasland and Gasland 2) on the red carpet. The Tribeca staff then barred him, his FrackNation partner Ann McElhinney, from the screening.
Fox’s people also barred a group of farmers who had gotten up at dawn to drive from Pennsylvania to see the movie.
Phelim, Ann and all the farmers had tickets! One farmer even said his wife was already inside, but they wouldn’t let him in once they knew he was with Phelim and Ann.
A Russian journalist was reportedly arrested for trying to cover the story of the festival keeping people out of the screening.
You know how they say, “Annoy a liberal – Use facts and logic”? They aren’t just whistling Dixie.
