synopsis

Michael Moore recalls that I.F. (“Izzy”) Stone once told him that if he wants to find out the real news, he needs to go to page 17 of any newspaper. The first page, he knew, is always controlled by power: governments, corporate advertisers, and propagandists. Between the 1950s and the 1970s, Stone kept a healthy distance from both political power and mainstream media in the United States. Consequently, he has become a reference point for those who practice today the kind of independent investigative journalism that is both necessary, uncomfortable, and financially perilous. Lesser known than mainstream TV and print stars, these people are always on the front lines of the battle between the public interest and the interests of the power: Glenn Greenwald, the former Guardian journalist who, together with Laura Poitras, was the first contact for whistleblower Edward Snowden; Jeremy Scahill, who broke open the story on drone killings; Matt Taibbi, music magazine Rolling Stone’s war reporter; and Amy Goodman, the main engine of the online startup channel Democracy Now!
