Sign-on letter to CNN – U.S. regarding the documentary Trophy: January 2018

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.
