The producer of a new film countering the anti-fracking propaganda is making an appearance in Montana the night the film is set to air on national TV.
(Note: We discussed the film with one of its producers last week on Voices of Montana while Jon Arneson guest hosted the program. Click here to check out our podcast page for the audio)
Here’s some of the details on the viewing party from The Montana Petroleum Association:
Tuesday, January 22nd, Phelim McAleer of the documentary FrackNation will be in Helena for the free viewing event hosted by the Montana Petroleum Association (MPA).
“One of the most important aspects of our job is education,” said Dave Galt, Executive Director of the MPA. “We’ve got to present the public with the facts on the oil and gas industry and the opportunities it creates right here in the Treasure State.”
Film maker and co-director Phelim McAleer described FrackNation as, “Pro-truth and pro-investigative journalism. It reveals the exaggerations and frauds that are at the heart of the anti-fracking movement and the length activists will go to reach their goal of banning fracking.”
The free viewing party will take place tomorrow at the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds Entry Hall at 98 W. Custer Avenue in Helena. Doors open to the public at 6:30, film starts at 7:00 and will be followed by a Q & A with Phelim McAleer.

Below is an interview with FrackNation co producer Ann McElhinney and The Daily Caller:
The Daily Caller added:
“FrackNation” — which will air Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on AXS-TV — directors Phelim McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney show how left-wing activists, media elites, Hollywood and environmental groups are trying to suffocate this energy revolution in its crib.
In a recent interview with TheDC’s Ginni Thomas, the Irish-born McElhinney discussed her new film, Hollywood’s campaign against fracking, the importance of Twitter and much more.

This “getting the truth out” type of effort is exactly what is needed to counter all this other drivel…
FYI: IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW… The funding for that “movie” that was made to spread all these lies – by hollywood etal, came from an OPEC nation/royalty!.. Do you think they, OPEC, may have a vested interest in seeing our efforts at ENERGY INDEPENDENCE plowed under??… The susposed “shortage” of crude oil is the only hook they can hang their hat on when it comes to pricing…run short and the price goes up, etc!!.. There are many of these Shale Oil Plays within the lower-48 states…AND, no one is talking about the GREEN RIVER FORMATION yet – why is that?.. It has over 2.5 times the OIL IN PLACE as OPEC does in total right now…we could flood the market and drop the price – IF we had a policy and some national view going!!.. But, due to the Dem’s/Greens/Obama-ites…we have none. WAKE UP AMERICA…the Oilpatch can save this nation…someone just needs to call them and ask them to !
