Just to clarify here, I am the Producer and the Writer of "The Principle", and I conducted many of the interviews, including those with George and Michio.
The essence of the media hoax consists in this: a personal enemy of the Executive Producer (who had never seen the film) tweeted two of the interviewees (who had never seen the film) and told them they had been hornswoggled into a film about geocentrism (having never seen the film).
Krauss denounced the film (having never seen it) and the media picked that up and ran with the hysterical and ridiculous story he tried to peddle on NPR (which never saw the film, nor did they ever contact us to check the facts).
Mulgrew caved (she never saw the film, but she read the script for weeks, and anyone who clicks the link below will see that there is no question whatsoever that her claim of having been misinformed is bunk).
Then the media contacted everybody else (having never seen the film) and told them all what the film was about (having never seen the film).
The scientists (having never seen the film) denounced what the media (which had never seen the film) told them the film was about.
Not very scientific of them.
Only George Ellis, as I said, remained scientific enough to point out that the story he was being told by the media (which had never seen the film) was not what he had been told by the Producer (who has definitely seen the film).
In short, the media was willingly duped and the scientists were hoaxed, some more, some less willingly.
Bottom line: nobody bothered to call me first, and this should be kept very firmly in mind as I prepare to launch my pre-release campaign for what is now probably the most important film of the year, since what is at stake is the right to question the Scientific High Priesthood.
Hope this helps.
