Summary
At their best, courageous journalists share a common mission worldwide: bearing witness to the truth as they see it in order to serve their fellow citizens, providing them accurate information, acting as their watchdog over those who hold power and speaking out in behalf of those who have none. Journalists inform; they warn; they analyze and interpret, all to help the public make sense of the world. This documentary profiles journalists in the U.S. and throughout the world as they struggle with government censorship, commercial pressures, and dangerous conditions in covering international events, and sheds light on the pivotal role journalists must play around the globe
