Pandora's Propaganda | PSR
CNN is set to air the pro-nuclear "documentary" film, Pandora's Promise in November. The film claims to document environmentalist converts to nuclear power, but is riddled with gross factual errors, straw man arguments, and populated by blatant shills for the nuclear industry. In short, this "documentary" would more accurately be called pro-nuclear propaganda.
We are asking CNN to balance this propaganda by broadcasting a discussion after the film airs with independent scientists, medical professionals and nuclear power experts who can present an accurate and honest assessment of the nuclear industry. CNN is a news network with a responsibility to present factual content. To air what is essentially an advertisement for the nuclear industry without a balancing discussion that features actual independent experts would be profoundly dishonest and taint CNN’s reputation. Please sign our petition to ask CNN to feature a panel discussion after the film that will help check the falsehoods presented in the film.
Sign our petition to Ken Jautz, Executive Vice President of CNN, calling for them to air a balancing discussion after the showing of Pandora's Promise.
Dear Mr. Jautz,
I am writing you today to express my concern and dismay that CNN has chosen to air the Robert Stone film, Pandora's Promise, a blatantly pro-nuclear film riddled with falsehoods, straw-man arguments, and populated by pro-nuclear flacks, and present it as a "documentary." It is a stain on CNN’s reputation as a credible news network to present this blatant propaganda as fact.
In order to balance the incredible assertions in the film, I ask that you air a discussion following the film with independent scientists, medical professionals, and nuclear power experts who can ground the presentation in real facts and an honest assessment of the "promise" of nuclear power.

Please sign our petition today to ask CNN for a live discussion with independent, qualified experts afterPandora's Promise airs.
Pandora's Promise is a blatant piece of propaganda. No effort was made by the filmmakers to seek out or feature independent experts with sound, unconflicted insights into the issues covered. There are misstatements and serious factual omissions in this film tailored to its promotional message that will mislead CNN's viewers.
