Naomi Klein takes name off of ‘Shock Doctrine’ doc

Naomi Klein has asked to have her name removed from the documentary based on her book The Shock Doctrine. The doc, directed by Michael Winterbottom, which has screened at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, will not contain Klein's name in the credits when it screens on More4 as Klein and the filmmaker had very different visions of the story.
