Merchants of Doubt

This blistering documentary (based on the book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway) exposes the history of professional lobbyists, PR firms and pundits-for-hire spin-doctoring the misdeeds of corporate America. Stealing a page (and a lot of the original players) from the tobacco industry's 50-year-long "cigarettes don't cause cancer" campaign, today's prime polluters of big oil and the automobile industry are spending an awful lot of money to convince the world global climate change is a myth. This slick, pithy and ultimately maddening film shows how they do it. FULL REVIEW: If facts have a liberal bias, then emotions love conservatives by Devin D. O’Leary (4/16/2015). 96 minutes PG-13.
