Film at Shoreview Library explores art of spin

The documentary film “Merchants of Doubt” will be shown at the Shoreview Library on Jan. 31 at 7 p.m.

Based on a book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, the film takes a ìsatirically comedic, yet illuminatingî look at disinformation campaigns, according to a library news release. Further, the subjects of the film are “highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities” but are more often serving specific, moneyed interests.

The Northeast Metro Climate Action group is sponsoring the showing.
