Help Fight Censorship at UNC Chapel Hill with Crowdfunding

Dear friends:

Academia is afraid of different viewpoints! 

Ann and fellow journalist Katie Pavlich were recently invited to speak at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill by the College Republicans. But the UNC Student Congress blocked the funds. 

They claim Ann and Katie are "non-intellectual" and have "no value." But their real reason is clear. 

It's censorship. Plain and simple. They won't tolerate people who have opinions different from their own. 

We need your help to send a clear message to UNC Student Government: Censorship is unacceptable

Ann and Katie started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to cover their costs for a trip to Chapel Hill and talks that promote free speech and diversity of opinion. 

Please donate today. Help us give the students of UNC speakers with views different from their professors. Help us bring real diversity of opinion to this college campus. 

And please spread the word on Facebook and Twitter

Thanks in advance for your help!

Breaking News: "Gasland 2" will premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

Dear friends:

We just learned that Gasland Part 2, the sequel to Josh Fox's thoroughly debunked anti-fracking film, will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City in April. We wanted you to be the first to find out because we know you care about spreading the truth.

No doubt this sequel will fuel interest in the anti-fracking movement. We need your help to show the public and the media that there is an alternative to Fox's misinformation.

Please help us by spreading the word about FrackNation as far and wide as possible.

The more people are involved with FrackNation, the louder we can speak the truth.

FrackNation air dates added on AXS TV!

Dear friends,

We had an overwhelmingly positive response to our premiere on January 22 on AXS TV. Thank you for the outpouring of support!

If you weren't able to see the premiere or would like to watch the film again, AXS TV will re-broadcast FrackNation:

- Saturday, February 2 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern (11:30 a.m. Pacific)

- Wednesday, February 6 at 12 a.m. Eastern (9 p.m. Pacific -- prime time)

The DVD is also for sale on our website.

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates about the film. After the premiere we had a boost of 5,000 likes on our Facebook page. There are great discussions and debates happening every day!

Finally, we wanted to bring your attention to a video of anti-fracking activist Vera Scroggins saying some rather unpleasant things to Phelim when he visited Dimock, PA to ask anti-fracking celebrities some tough questions. Please have a watch and share it with your friends!

FrackNation Premieres Tomorrow!

Well, the wait will soon be over.

We wanted to write to thank you so much for your support! You are the reason this film is possible. Remember to tell your friends and family that FrackNation is having its television premiere tomorrow—Tuesday, January 22 at 9 p.m. Eastern on Mark Cuban's AXS TV.

We think you will really enjoy it. We hope you can join us in watching Phelim travel across America combating threats, malicious 911 calls and bogus lawsuits just for trying to ask inconvenient questions.

We also wanted to tell you about our new website and update you on DVDs. For those of you who donated over $20 and selected a DVD as your reward, we will began shipping the DVDs on February 7. For those of you who supported us with a different amount and would like to buy a DVD, you can do so on our website.

Additionally we wanted to share this funny but sad video of Phelim trying to get some sense out of celebrities who are visiting "victims" of fracking in Dimock, PA. Watch as Susan Sarandon, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon seem to prefer false allegations to scientific study.

Our new TV and radio ads have been getting a lot of attention. The "Meet Josh Fox" ad might make you angry, but we think this radio ad will make you laugh. Please have a listen!

Finally FrackNation has been in the media a lot! The film got excellent reviews in Red State and Hot Air. There was also coverage of Phelim's celebrity encounter in Dimock by The Guardian and Huffington Post and interviews with Montana Radio, SarahNET Radio, Big Hollywood and Fox Business!

So we hope you get to watch on Tuesday. We are so excited that America will finally get to see the truth about fracking.
