New Netflix Movie is Propaganda not Documentary
Vegan activists masquerade as filmmakers to promote anti-seafood screed
Washington, DC – March 9, 2021 – Netflix’s long history of providing a platform for oft over looked documentaries is being called into question with its promotion of vegan activist propaganda.
Seaspiracy, the seafood sister to the vegan activist film, Cowspiracy, will premiere on Netflix in March.
“A vegan? To each their own. But when you’re producing a ninety minute vegan propaganda piece and calling it a ‘documentary’ that’s disingenuous,” said NFI President John Connelly.
The National Fisheries Institute has written to Netflix citing the litany of the hyperbole, half-truths and mischaracterizations associated with the producer’s previous animal and food related productions.
Noting the clear definitional difference between:
Documentary: a presentation (such as a film or novel) expressing or dealing with factual events: a documentary presentation
Propaganda: the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person
NFI suggested Netflix start a new “propaganda” content tab where films based on exaggeration, fabrications and conspiracy theories can be accessed.
“Keep in mind, this is the same entertainment network that brought us the whack-jobs of Tiger King. So let’s all take a breath,” said Connelly.
