Fund Drive Special: Challenging Authority

I.F. Stone was one of the greatest American journalists of the 20th century. His newsletter I. F. Stone’s Weekly, which he published from 1953 to 1971, was guided by the idea that journalists must defend the weak against the strong and always challenge authority. And while Stone’s legacy has largely been ignored by the mainstream, he inspired legions of muckraking investigative reports. A documentary film made by a team of reporters themselves influenced by his journalism aims to both remind the public of Stone’s important work and celebrate the journalism of his successor.
