One Rogue Reporter
  • Year2014
  • Duration55 min

Back in 2011, Rich Peppiatt was a young, disillusioned reporter for the Daily Star ready to drop a bomb of a brilliant resignation letter to the management. Almost instantly, it was picked up by the broadsheets, retweeted and reposted on all the media blogs as a two-fingered salute to sleazebag journalism. The “tabloid hack” was now the David to the paper’s Goliath and over the next year, he resolved to turn the tables back on Fleet Street. Like a rash that won’t let up, Peppiatt plagued the mean boys of News Corp et al with his Pandora’s box of hilarious pranks. He confronts the head bullies and strips them down – sometimes literally – with their own tricks of the trade: wreak havoc, because it doesn’t matter as long as you bring the story in. Featuring interviews with Hugh Grant, Steve Coogan, and John Prescott, One Rogue Reporter is a gutsy takedown best served funny.
