Merchants of Doubt
“Enthralling … as fascinating as it is horrifying .. gives a peek behind the curtain of how public opinion is formed in this country, how spin doctors and media manipulators — often the same folks working across a whole range of issues — get people to ignore science at their own peril.” –L.A. Times
What do we really know about the dangers of cigarettes, toxic products and global warming? Robert Kenner (FOOD, INC.) tells the story of American spin, lifting the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities, yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion. (U.S., 2014, 96m, Sony Pictures Classics, digital)
