About the film:

Who decides which stories get told? A scrappy group of women and LGBTQ+ journalists buck the white male-dominated status quo, banding together to launch The 19th*, a digital news startup aiming to combat misinformation. A story of an America in flux, and the voices often left out of the narrative, the documentary Breaking the News shows change doesn’t come easy.

Filmmakers: Heather Courtney (director/producer), Princess A. Hairston (director/producer), Chelsea Hernandez (director/producer), Diane M. Quon (producer)
