On the same day the Today show ran their national news package about Robin Hood of Keene, reporter Matt Caron from WWLP-TV in showed up to the Keene Activist Center toting a video camera. Here’s the report he filed that evening on the local NBC affiliate in Springfield, MA:
The trailer has just been released for “FREEDOM! The Movie”, which premieres Saturday, July 11th at 9pm Eastern on CMT and features liberty activists and Free State Project early movers from both the Manch and Keene areas. In the upcoming feature-length documentary produced by Morgan Spurlock, comedian Billy Wayne Davis is on a search for freedom in America and his path takes him to various interesting places and people.
In at least their fourth story in the last few years related to the Free State Project, the excellent VICE.com has focused in on the amazing Buzz’s Big Gay Dance Party which had its final of six years this year at the Porcupine Freedom Festival. Porcfest will continue, perhaps with a new epic party – only time will tell.
For additional perspective on being gay at Porcfest, visit Joe Jarvis’ blog of his experience at this year’s week-long camping festival populated by mostly libertarians and voluntarists. If you love liberty, regardless of sexual orientation, you’ll probably really enjoy Porcfest.
In a four minute segment this morning, the major national morning television news program “Today” on NBC featured Robin Hood of Keene! The package by investigative journalist Jeff Rossen was excellent. Thanks to NBC for the coverage!
Last week, Porcfest (the Porcupine Freedom Festival), the Free State Project‘s yearly camping festival in the White Mountains of Northern New Hampshire, was already generating headlines across the state, before it had even begun.
Here’s more media coverage of Porcfest 2015:
- The Union Leader reports from the event, mid-way through the week.
- Jacob Hornberger of the Future of Freedom Foundation shares his experience at his first Porcfest.
- YouTuber Julie Borowski was also at her first Porcfest. Here’s her writeup about it.
I may update this post with more entries as I discover them.
