Merchants of Doubt

Merchants of Doubt

Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts 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 about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.

    Hmmmmm.
    Shermer, a "debunker" of the demolition of World Trade Center 7 on September 11, 2001, says that climate change is caused by humans.
    I guess that I better rethink my agreement with the idea.
    He is certainly not truthful on the buildings demolitions.

    Positive rating for both the trailer and the movie proper, which was just shown at the annual Conference on World Affairs.

    Sorry Naomi broke her ankle and was unable to be in Boulder for talk back, but pinch-hitter Alex did a good job answering questions and adding some European perspective.

    Marc Morano is *so* proud that he’s a despicable scumbag. (:-( Surprised he’s not in theRump’s​ White House.
