Kill the Messenger‘s plot synopsis: “Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.”

  • What I don’t get is the plot element of ‘smear campaign’. Webb had some nuggets of truth, to be sure, but the major conclusions he drew were highly exaggerated and not supported by those facts. So major newspapers backed off. Later, after he killed himself, they regretted it .

    So what smear? This baffles me, and makes me wonder how much propaganda is in the movie.
