Inspired by influential journalist I.F. Stone, director Frank Peabody sets out to document the life and struggles of investigative journalists working today – reporters who risk their lives and freedom to carry on Stone's legacy of speaking truth to power. This energetic and thought-provoking documentary features in-depth interviews with journalists and opinion makers such as Noam Chomsky, Ana Kasparian, Michael Moore and Matt Taibbi, and questions the big media conglomerates' tendency to put profit before social responsibility.
