Embedded journalists risk their lives to ensure that every American knows the truth about what's happening on the front lines, and in this documentary chronicling the history of embedded journalists from World War II to Iraq, viewers are given the opportunity to see the images that the evening news refused to air. Why is it that thousands of reporters from the United States were sent to cover the war in Iraq, yet a substantial number of their stories never made it into the newspaper of nightly television newscasts? For the first time ever, home viewers can finally understand the courage and frustrations of these battle weary newspeople.
