Many have fantasized about emailing their boss and 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, Rich throws his ingrained ethics of tabloid journalism into the spotlight, deciding 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, and part cri de coeur against unaccountable press power. From infamous former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie to feared Daily Mail chief Paul Dacre, this is one riotous tale you won't be reading about in any tabloid newspaper.
