The ISN sends reporters to make a video report on Babylon 5. Explaining that he will try to tell as much of the truth as he can, the lead journalists refuses to promise that he can be in any way impartial, but implores Babylon 5 to tell their side of the story, anyhow. The results turn out to be even worse than what they expected.
While the special presentation on Babylon 5 was ultimately propaganda, attentive viewers will notice that Dan Randall may have kept his promise to Sheridan. This moment of truth can be seen when Randall mentions that Sheridan's father, David has gone missing and the family farm has been destroyed.
The ISN broadcast contained a goof. ISN displayed a graphic: "THIS YEAR IN HISTORY" with voice over: "This year in history." And then proceeded to list items about this day in history, items introduced by phrases like: "Three hundred years ago today, in 1961..." "And 100 years ago today..."
- The Helsinki Syndrome described by Dr. Indiri is actually called the Stockholm Syndrome.
