Josh Fox Arrested

Today Josh Fox was arrested by capital police when he refused to turn off his camera when filming the House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment. The chairman is a Republican and it seems as if he was prejudicial against Fox on a technicality. Although the proceedings were being webcast, the Republicans chose to deny him (and us) our first amendment rights.  I guess they wanted to show him who is in control:

Here is a good accounting of the incident from the Huffington Post: Gasland’ Journalists Arrested At Hearing By Order Of House Republicans (UPDATES)

On his Facebook page Josh asks everyone to:

CALL OR EMAIL CONGRESS NOW! Tell them Josh should be allowed in to film the hearing. It’s guaranteed in the first amendment! Call tonight thru tomorrow morning. Thank you! Please repost!
