Peter Greste spent two decades reporting from the front line in the world's most dangerous countries before making headlines himself following his own incarceration in an Egyptian prison. Wars have always been about propaganda but today's battles are increasingly between ideas, and the media has become part of the battlefield. Based on extensive interviews and research, Greste shows how deeply investigative journalism is under threat, not just in the murders at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo or the repressions of Putin's Russia, but in Australia's metadata laws and Trump's phony war on 'fake news'.
