Meticulously tracing the process by which the media can distort and often dismiss actual news events, Robert Kane Pappas' documentary seeks to explore the degree to which the United States has become an Orwellian world of doublespeak, where outright fabrication may pass for the truth.
Pappas works his way through a compelling list of 'the best stories never reported' and explores ways in which the media operate to skew the truth.
Filmmakers (including Tim Robbins and ubiquitous polemicist, Michael Moore), academics, authors, investigative reporters, media analysts, politicians, broadcasters and Pappas himself contribute views increasingly sidelined by the mainstream media.
