Exposé of the CIA-financed efforts of the Edwards family of Chile to cover up the human rights abuses of the Pinochet dictatorship through its newspaper 'El Mercurio'.

Plot

Journalism students start an investigation about the editorial line of El Mercurio S.A.P., a media corporation owned by Agustin Edwards Eastman that publishes Chilean daily newspapers El Mercurio, La Segunda, and Las Ultimas Noticias.

The documentary focuses particularly on the role of El Mercurio, Chile’s leading conservative newspaper. The events covered include the land reform that occurred during the Eduardo Frei Montalva government, the opposition to Salvador Allende, the collaboration with Augusto Pinochets military government, and the position held until the arrival of democracy in Chile. Overall, it presents a strong indictment of the newspaper and its editor, which are accused of public opinion manipulation, especially with disinformation campaigns.
