In a stunning break with First Amendment policy, House Republicans directed Capitol Hill police to detain a highly regarded documentary crew that was attempting to film a Wednesday hearing on a controversial natural gas procurement practice. Initial reports from sources suggested that an ABC News camera was also prevented from taping the hearing; ABC has since denied that they sent a crew to the hearing.
Josh Fox, director of the Academy Award-nominated documentary “Gasland” was taken into custody by Capitol Hill police this morning, along with his crew, after Republicans objected to their presence, according to Democratic sources present at the hearing. The meeting of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment had been taking place in room 2318 of the Rayburn building.
HuffPost has obtained exclusive video of the arrest of Josh Fox. Rep. Brad Miller (D-N.C.), the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee, can be heard at the end of the clip asking Republican Chairman Andy Harris (R-Md.) to halt the arrest and permit Fox to film the public hearing. Harris denies Miller’s request as Fox is escorted out of the hearing in handcuffs.
“Gasland” received strong critical acclaim and takes a critical eye toward the practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” a process in which several tons of highly pressurized water and chemicals are injected into the ground, allowing valuable natural gas to escape. The practice is decried by ecological experts for destroying ecosystems and polluting groundwater. The energy industry keeps the actual content of fracking chemicals secret.
Fox had hoped to film Wednesday’s hearing for a follow-up to “Gasland.” Fox told HuffPost later Wednesday evening, “We did get his staff on the phone, they never returned the phone call,” referring to staffers for Chairman Harris. “This is not transparency. This is a lockout and it’s bad. It’s the people’s House, after all. We went through the proper channels to arrange to tape this hearing. We have taped congressional hearings before and we’ve been turned down before, but I disagree with the policy. Anyone who says they’re a journalist is a journalist. It’s called the First Amendment. It’s the freedom of the press, and that is fundamental to our core identity as the United States of America.”
In 2005, the court ruled that the New York State Consumer Protection Board violated Trudeau’s First Amendment rights!
Trudeau filed a suit against the government for sending letters and using threats and intimidation against TV stations NOT to run ads for Trudeau’s books.

A nurse recently found herself facing felony prosecution for making an anonymous complaint about the unsafe practices of a doctor at the hospital where she worked in the small town of Kermit, Texas.
Anne Mitchell and two fellow nurses became concerned about the conduct of Dr. Rolando G. Arafiles Jr. not long after he joined the staff of their public hospital in 2008. After repeated complaints to hospital administrators went ignored, Mitchell and another nurse drafted a letter to the state medical board, citing six particular cases of concern. In one of these, Arafiles had performed a skin graft in an emergency room without surgical privileges, and the procedure failed. In another, he sutured a rubber tip to a crushed finger, for which he was later reprimanded by the Department of State Health Services. The nurses also complained that Arafiles was e-mailing patients about an herbal remedy that he sold outside his professional capacity.
A third nurse also enclosed a letter to the medical board.
The board notified Arafiles of the anonymous complaints, and he contacted his friend and patient the country sheriff, alleging harassment. Sheriff Robert L. Roberts Jr. obtained search warrants and searched hospital computers seeking the letters’ authors.
Mitchell and her co-author were arrested and charged with misuse of official information. They were promptly fired. The third nurse was not charged.
“It was surreal,” Mitchell said. “I said how can this be? You can’t go to prison for doing the right thing.”
Prosecutor Scott M. Tidwell — also Arafiles’ personal lawyer — eventually dropped the charges against Mitchell’s co-defendant, but took Mitchell’s case all the way to trial, seeking to prove that the nurse had acted out of malice.
After deliberating for an hour, a jury found Mitchell not guilty.
Nevertheless, Mitchell and her co-defendant complain that they have been unable to find new work and that their reputations had been severely damaged. They have filed a counter-lawsuit against Arafiles, Roberts, Tidwell, the hospital and the county for vindictive prosecution and infringement of their First Amendment rights.
