Greetings from germany. I just saw the documentary gasland and was truly shocked by the information given there. If something like this would happen
in germany..our press would go all over it and the pressure for the responsible people would be enorme. We even make a big deal out of a president
that got a loan for better conditions than others..when it comes to "burning" water because of drillings in our own country the media would not be
quite about it.
My question to the us people is: do you know the documentary gaslands? Did something change after the documentary was made? Why does the press not
talk about it and when it is not talking about it why dont you see a necessity to force them to talk about it by really making public pressure. Don´t
you know how you can do that?
I ask myself this because in the last 3 years i saw a lot of independent documentaries about things in the us that are just tragic. And every single
topic was what you would call a sensation...a "xy -gate". ...but i never heard of a lot of stuff again. That frustrates me but i for myself know that
this could not happen in germany like that. Maybe because its smaller. I don´t know.
But do you have an idea what you could change to put more pressure on the media "to do their job"!!?
