As some of you may be aware, a controversy has erupted over a decision to cancel the airing of the documentary, "Troubled Waters," on PBS in early October. The documentary was produced with University of Minnesota assistance, and the decision to cancel it has set off a firestorm. The decision has received extensive coverage in the Star Tribune and in The Minnesota Daily.
From what I have read in the newspaper, the content of the documentary is related to some of the things we are, and will be, discussing in The Omnivore's Dilemma. I would be quite interested in learning your views and having some class discussion about this controversy. It brings together in one ongoing story political and economic interests, food policy, arguments about freedom of expression, and current newsworthiness.
