5WPR CEO Ronn Torossian quoted on Hollywood and politics:


Dr. Shakil Afridi is a hero who helped America find Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan – and since then he’s been tortured by Pakistan.  Some in Hollywood are saying that “Zero Dark Thirty” can help him be freed — and as I said today on Foxnews.com, Hollywood could indeed make an enormous impact.

“It would be immensely powerful and heard around the world if stars at the Oscars would raise a voice of moral conscience for Dr. Shakil Afridi,” he said. “Afridi is a hero who helped America and celebrity attention could help this man tremendously. It would send an incredible message to the world that America cares about people who help them if Hollywood would demand freedom for Dr. Shakil Afridi.”
