"Oil and Gas Group Urges Oscar Judges to Steer Clear of 'Gasland'"

"The oil and gas industry doesn't want a golden Oscar statuette to grace the mantel of "Gasland" filmmaker Josh Fox.

An industry group sent a letter today to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, saying that a litany of errors in the anti-drilling film should render it ineligible for best documentary feature. ...

But Fox says his documentary is "backed up by facts 100 percent," and it is the industry that perpetuates falsehoods."
