The Hunting Ground, the documentary on campus rape, will air at 8 p.m. Thursday on CNN.

The film includes the first public comments from Jameis Winston's accuser, Zephyrhills' Erica Kinsman, and her version of Florida State University's actions in the case.

FSU issued a statement Monday questioning CNN's decision to air the film, which was released in theaters earlier this year

"It is inexcusable for a network as respected as CNN to pretend that the film is a documentary rather than an advocacy piece," FSU president John Thrasher said.

We've written about the film a few times previously. I pre-screened the film several months ago and wrote about its Winston components. Our film critic, Steve Persall, talked with the film's director during the spring and also wrote his own review.
