THE WORLD IS WATCHING examines the unseen elements of news gathering, editing, and reportage that shaped our understanding of Nicaragua's Arias Peace Plan negotiations, and our understanding of the U.S. sponsored Contra war.

THE WORLD IS WATCHING follows ABC's John Quinones in Managua while simultaneously recording editorial meetings with Peter Jennings and senior editors at the New York newsroom. The juxtaposition of the news gathering and news editing processes reveals how the business works, exposing the distortions that are an inevitable - sometimes intentional - part of the process.
