Kill the Messenger
A journalist at a minor newspaper, Gary Webb, gets a tip-off that a witness at trial of a drug dealer is a government informant, and is importing drugs into the U. S. After much investigation he uncovers evidence that suggests that the CIA are allowing U.S. - backed rebels in Nicaragua to sell large quantities of drugs in the U. S. in exchange for arms. Once he publishes the story, his world is turned upside down.
