We understand CNN – U.S. will be airing a pre-recorded interview with the CEO of Born Free USA, Prashant Khetan, on January 11 and a live conversation between Mr. Khetan and Philip Glass, a hunter featured in Trophy, on January 12. We are respectfully asking you to please reconsider airing this “shockumentary” on your esteemed network without offering your millions of viewers an opportunity to see and hear the counterviews to trophy hunting presented with the same degree of prominence and exposure. To this end, we request a meeting with you prior to the airing of Trophy to plead our case as to why airing the film in its current form could do irreparable damage to the cause of responsible wildlife conservation.
