The documentary, “Merchants of Doubt,” will be shown during the Women for Kansas Barton County Chapter at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, June 24, at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center. Women for Kansas, a non-partisan organization, focuses on encouraging moderate political policies.
Using a professional magician, the film explores the analogy between public relations and the methods used by magicians to distract audiences from observing how illusions are performed. The 2014 American documentary film is directed by Robert Kenner and inspired by the 2010 book of the same name by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.
WFK is a grassroots initiative designed to energize and educate individuals and groups of women across the state for the purpose of advocating for moderate policies, providing knowledge and tools to engage in the political process. The group’s vision statement is to restore integrity, transparency, fiscal responsibility and balance to Kansas by electing moderate candidates to public office.
