Documentary, Comedy
UK, 61  min

One Rogue Reporter is the story of Rich Peppiatt, a tabloid hack who snaps over his red top paper’s fixation with sensationalism over substance and titillation over truth. When the phone-hacking scandal engulfs Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, Rich decides to use the skills he’s honed on Fleet Street to turn the tables on the press barons peddling sex, lies and scaremongering under the thin veil of ‘journalism.’ The result is a hilariously satirical documentary, part investigative exposé, part comedy caper, and part cri de coeur against unaccountable power in the media.
