Storyline

Everyone has fantasised about emailing their boss & unleashing what they really think of them. Few actually ever reach for the keyboard. Fewer still end up pressing 'send'. No one has made a film about it - until now. 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, throwing tabloid ethics under the spotlight, 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 cloak of journalism. The result is a hilariously satirical documentary: part investigative exposé; part comedy caper; part cri de coeur against unaccountable press power. What began as a critically-acclaimed comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe has been inventively transferred to the screen with the help of incisive interviewees ranging from ...

a brave former reporter highlighting duplicity
3 March 2015 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Watched this film with my wife, we were laughing all the way through. If you have knowledge of the Levison enquiry then you will love this film. To see Kelvin McKenzie shown for the hypocrite that he is justifies the cost of Netflicks for a year easily. Brilliant! The essence of the film is to highlight the hypocrisy that is fielded by the UK press. It shows on many many levels that the attitude is that you do as I say and not as I do, The Media in the UK is controlled by so few people who this programme highlights have no interest in truth or justice, but have the soul goal of shifting copy. This may seem a reasonable goal, but the 4th estate is challenged with a higher calling according to them at least, this programme shows that they most definitely are not fulfilling this remit. Once again a must watch programme
