Merchants of Doubt

Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, this film takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Documentarian Robert Kenner (Food, Inc.) investigates the shadowy world of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading doubt about well-studied public threats, ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.


Directed by Robert Kenner and produced by Robert Kenner and Melissa Robledo.
