Plot Summary
George Seldes, veteran journalist and foreign correspondent of roughly 80 years, has plenty to say about the newspaper industry, its history, and its power. Viewers are introduced to his remarkable life, which took him to Italy during the early days of fascism, among other places where being a truth-seeking reporter could be a liability.
