Republican lawmakers bash Gasland; want it pulled from international program

A post on www.redstate.com criticizes some of the other films in the program. Caleb Howe writes, “’Gasland’ is not the only ‘documentary’ on the list that leans green. Also included are “Who Killed the Electric Car” and “Revenge of the Electric Car,” two films that ignore the lack of demand for electric cars and ignore the abysmal sales of electric cars, respectively. In addition to the green films, they also list “Food, Inc.,” an indictment of the American food industry, and “Pilgrimage,” an indictment of U.S. internment camps during World War II. Both of these may be fine subjects for documentaries, but one wonders what the Department of State hopes to gain by screening them worldwide at taxpayer expense.”
