"How's your news?" may seem an odd question to ask a stranger, but in this documentary about five disabled adults who travel across the country as news reporters, it isn't the question that matters. Traveling coast to coast, the outgoing reporters explore honky-tonk bars, alligator farms, the Grand Canyon, and wild city streets. The film is a tribute to the subjects, often sweet but never exploitative, and captures the public's response to encountering these individuals who wield not only a camera and a microphone, but often more insight than viewers might expect.
Originally produced as a documentary motion picture in 1999, portions were shown in 1999 on "Split Screen" on the IFC Channel, and an advance print screened in Austin, Texas at SXSW in 2000, prior to being presented on Cinemax's "Reel Life" in 2001.
