PALERMO NEWS: “Merchants of Doubt” exposed on Friday

PALERMO — On Friday, March 31, the Palermo Community Center will host another monthly potluck Dinner-and-a-Movie event, starting at 6 p.m. This one comes from the director of Food, Inc. Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic , yet illuminating, ride into the heart of the conjuring world of spin doctors. Filmmaker Robert Kenner reveals a secretive group of highly-charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats from toxic chemicals and pharmaceuticals to climate change.

Bring a dish to share with friends and neighbors, or a donation to the Food Pantry. The event is free and open to all. The Community Center is just off Turner Ridge Rd., across from the ball field. For more information, please contact Connie at 993-2294.
