Kill the Messenger is based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb and takes place in the mid 1990s, when Webb uncovered the CIA’s past role in importing huge amounts of cocaine into the U.S. Despite considerable pressure not to pursue the matter, Webb went after the story and went public with his evidence, publishing the series Dark Alliance. As a result, Webb became the subject of a smear campaign fueled by the CIA that drove him to the point of suicide. Kill the Messenger is out October 10.
