Kony 2012 video going viral

Ever since the 30-minute pseudo-documentary “Kony 2012” appeared on the scene, criticisms and celebration have been flying. Now, new questions have been raised by some troubling news stories surrounding the man behind the film, Jason Russell, as well as some less-than-legal methods by which the Kony issue has been publicized.

The CEO of “Invisible Children,” Russell’s organization, put this more diplomatically in a statement, saying “The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday.”

The emotional toll presumably refers to the fact that the Kony 2012 documentary has been recently and repeatedly attacked, both over questions of accuracy, and for possibly inadvertently aiding Kony’s flight from justice.
