Storyline

Gunter Wallraff is a journalist seeking to expose the unethical journalism practiced by The Standard, a very popular and powerful German newspaper. He goes undercover, using forged identity papers and at great personal risk, to join their staff. Once there, he sees how they don't just report the news, but manufacture it to suit the personal political agenda of the paper's leaders. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Crazy Credits

Before the credits there is the following: 'LEAD STORY', Wallraff's expose of 'The Daily Standard', has become a best seller in Germany and throughout Western Europe. The Standard's readership dropped off 17% after the book's release, and the paper has been plagued by student demonstrations and lawsuits from its victims. However, nine million Germans still read it daily. In a subsequent ruling, the court prohibited Wallraff from mentioning any link between 'The Standard' and German State Security. The German League of Industrialists implemented a security program at all its major facilities to guard against future infiltration. Gunter Wallraff is currently working on a new project...somewhere in Germany. See more »

Oh boy, How could they?
24 February 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is almost definitely the worst film I have ever seen, taking into account that I've also seen STAR TREK INSURRECTION that's saying something. whom-ever passed this to be made is hopefully burning in hell.

AVOID, BEWARE, RUN FOR THE HILLS.
