Hollywood, CA—Phelim McAleer, journalist and director of controversial "pro-fracking" documentary FrackNation, has withdrawn from an International Monetary Fund (IMF) Conference after the organizers censored his presentation and speech.
IMF would not allow him to play a clip from FrackNation that criticized Russia about its opposition to fracking.
“It’s actually unbelievable that a conference by IMF and Oxford University would want to censor one of their speakers to protect one of the wealthiest countries in the world,” McAleer said to the Washington Free Beacon. “Do people really want to go to a conference where opinions on powerful people are censored?”
Phelim was scheduled to give the keynote address on March 20 at the Understanding International Commodity Price Fluctuations Conference.
